Delivery Room?

Since losing my husband, everytime I look at a delivery plan I'm totally at a loss. I was looking at a post today about who to have in the room and I have no idea now. If you and df weren't together or if your dh wasn't there, who did you have in the delivery room?

  • Choose someone who you won't mind seeing you half naked and at your most vulnerable. You will be both and need to have someone there that you trust beyond a shadow of a doubt.

  • I am so sorry for your loss.....

    I am an only child and my Mom actually ANNOYS me when I'm in pain and under pressure. So I guess a close friend, my dad, or maybe both. I'd like a support person and another to play photographer for me. I am modest though so I'd make them promise to cover me if a boob is hanging out and not to look "down there", even for photos

  • I could not imagine not having the baby's father with me. I am so sorry for your loss. If I had to choose anyone else, it would probably be my mother.

  • I am sorry for your loss.

    Honestly, I have given birth to our previous two children by myself, because I find the whole ordeal to embarrassing to watch, but my LP has pressured me into letting him in this time. If I had to choose someone else, it would be his mother or my sister. Both would respect my privacy and be good support.

  • What kind of a birth experience do you want?
    How far along are you?
    What will be the setting?
    Do you have close friends-family-children that you would like to be present?

  • I really want a calm experience and one where I'll have tons of support because I feel like I'm going to be terrified.
    I'm currently only 14 weeks with twins.
    I will be in a hospital.
    I think I would like his mom and sister to be there. Maybe a really close friend but I haven't talked to her about it yet.

  • Sorry for your loss. I would say my mom and MIL and my sister, but that's it.
