  • Talk to your son and DIL and find out what would make them most comfortable. Whether or not you are in the delivery room, be at the hospital to share their joy and see your new grandchild.

  • Ask what they want and go with it. I personally can't stand having either mother in there with me when I'm laboring- DH and a good friend are all I want. They waited in the waiting area with the rest of the family. Everyone has different feelings about who they want with them when they are in labor- some may want the whole family, others just the dad, etc.

  • I would ask your son and DIL what they want from you, just to make sure you do not step over any boundaires as some MIL's tend to do!
