What do you guys think of having your other child(ren) in the room while you give birth? Have any of you guys done it? My niece did it and her first child is almost 2.

I gave my kids (12-8) the choice, they opted out... Honestly I'm glad they said no lol

I personally think its weird... I would not want my kids in there... First time I saw that on a tv show... I was like "What the hell are they thinking letting those kids see all that??"

Not possible. Most likely would need another c-section and obviously no kids allowed in the operating room.  I don't think its something small kids should see anyway.

My oldest son watched his brother & sister be born, middle son watched sister be born, none watched the baby when I had her because hospital wouldn't allow them. They were really upset!

Not for me. I had other things to do than watch my kids.
