Shocked and disgusted by the amount of women here who think anyone has a "right" to be in the delivery room.

s/o from another thread.  And honestly I am surprised and completely digusted that so many women here think that anyone has a right to be in the delivery room that mom doesn't want there.

We are people, not baby machines.

Delivery is a vulnerable, physically difficult and stressful time. 

Not too long ago NO ONE was allowed in the delivery room whether mom wanted them or not.

At what point did a woman giving birth stop being a person with diginity, privacy and her own rights?  

At what point did MIL's and ex spouses gain the right to see a woman with her gentitals splayed, in the most vulnerable and physically challenging moment of her life whether they were wanted there or not?

What is so wrong with someone waiting outside the delivery room in the hallway?

I wouldn't let my son's dad in the delivery room. He was pissed. I don't care, I wasn't in a relationship. It's MY body.

I and only I decide who is going to be in that room, and right now it's only going to be me and my fiancé.

 My husband and I deliver our children alone and then call family when we're settled in.  There is no need for the spectacle, everyone will see the baby in due time.

I agree. Giving birth is not a spectator sport.

my ex wasn't with me when I had DD9-that was my choice

MIL wasn't allowed when DH"s ex wife gave birth-that was her choice

I love how ppl were saying they were gonna be in the room with my sister when SHE gave birth (like our cousin who had nothing to do with my sister or our family)

it's that sense of entitlement coming into play....honestly if my MIL tried to come into my delivery room-she'd get peened with a bedpan!!

Child birth is not a spectator sport in my world.   No one needed to see or be a part of that other than my husband and the doctor. And my husband was negotiable.
