My ex sil and her DH are having their first baby together. She wants her Mom in the delivery room but he doesn't. He wants it to be a special time between them. Her Mom was there for her first because she was by herself.

Even more than a wedding day, this is mom's day. She is the one that needs the support and is doing the work. I see her husband's point, but I think they should talk, but the final decision is up to his wife.

Okay. I'm not sure what to say.

Ok... they should talk with each other and work it out. What do you want us to say?

My mom was relieved she could wait in the waiting room!

The one in labor should get the support she needs. I would be disappointed if my husband didn't put my needs first.

I probably wouldn't have had my mom in the room if DH didn't want her in there. Your SO should be your main support person, along with the hospital staff, and anyone else being extra. So it shouldn't matter.

She's the patient. It's ultimately up to her.

She keeps trying to get me on her side but I kicked my Mom out because DH wanted it to be our special time.

That's tough. My ex let that decision up to me, he knew how close I am with my mom. I needed her there for the birth of my first child. That being said, I'm older now and if I had another child with my current SO, I doubt I would want my mother there. i would want it to be as private as possible after experiencing so many people in and out after the birth of my son.

Her husband should support her in any way she needs, yes it's his baby too, but she's the one going through the labor. This is just my opinion.

I feel for her husband & what he wants but in the end, she's the one giving birth & should have whomever she wants there.
