I've had 4 and don't remember it being true for the 1st 3 but with number 4 there was a guy standing there dressed in a security guard's uniform. He was standing next to the bassinet when I was about to push. This was my 1st time without and epidural so I was busy asking for one. The doctor was saying no because baby was ready to come. I was freaking out a bit. I looked over and he had the meanest look on his face. Hubby wasn't there. He didn't make it to the hospital in time so I was alone. Is that usually the case and I didn't notice it the 1st 3 times or is this something new?
So I just called the hospital. Feel bad disturbing them but I had to ask.
The nurse said chances are it wasn't a security guard but a paramedic because sometimes they have paramedics in the room during deliveries so they can refresh on delivering babies since they have to do it in the field. She said they usually don't wear hospital wear but instead their field uniforms. On second thought, I'm thinking that could have been the case.
She said to find out for sure, I can ask for my records from that day and it would be there. She said they usually wouldn't have a security guard unless like you guys said, if the family is acting out of control.
Thanks everyone for helping me get this question answered.

That's not normal. Um he would have no business in my delivery room because first off all my goods are hanging out and second no one needs to see my goods except the people who need to and a security guard doesn't have the credentials.
