Does anyone think it's a bad idea for my 17yr old daughter to want her stepfather in the delivery room with her?

  • If she's comfortable with him there, I don't see the problem.

  • If she wants him there, why is that a bad thing? For me, I only wanted my DH in there, but my mother snuck in anyways... This time, I'm not even going to let her in the hospital so she can't do it again...

  • Why would it be a problem.

  • I think it's your daughters choice. It is a time to be surrounded by people she loves and who love her. I see nothing wrong with it.

  • No. She should have whoever she feels the most comfortable with, and needs support from. If they have a good relationship, he should most definitely be there for her!

  • NO!! My stepdad held my hand through my entire birthing process. He was more comforting then my mom was. :) Nothing wrong with it at all.

  • no. Why don't you want him in there? He's her stepdad. I think her asking him to be in there goes to show that she thinks very highly of him and has accepted him as "family".
