  • I am not sure, if you have the baby at a military hospital maybe. I know when I was there, not giving birth but sick during pregnancy, I had the say so. But if your husband is not supportive for you at this time of need, you won't last long in this marriage. I have been married to a military man for 7 years with two children, he never changed and thought he was my salvation and could act as he pleases while keeping me far from my family because they didn't like him...sorry for running my mouth, but I guess been there done that, if you want your family there, then demand it!

  • No, YOU can choose who you want.
    You might prefer to birth in a birthing center or even at home for better control, though.
