I think you just have to be honest with her. Just explain to her that you love her like a sister, but you are keeping it to just you and DH in the delivery room. I think she would understand that... I have a best friend like that, but I wouldn't expect to be in the delivery room if she ever gave birth!

Would your BFF be willing to be on call and stay with the boys when you go into labor? If she has an important role that might make it less difficult to understand why you don't want her in the delivery room.

Quoting Stevensmomma: My dh was their for both of my boys he will be their for this baby too.

My mom always takes care of the kids so she was planning on doing it again this time around too its easy for her seeing as she is retired. But I can keep her as a back up just in case my dh is at work and I need to get to the hospital

I think you just need to explain to her that you want it the way it was for your other two births, just your dh. If she's that good a friend, she'll understand. 

 FFor my first time, just dh was there. Second time was at home, dh, 2 midwives and parametics. My mom was in the house, but not in the room.

Everyone ... his parents and my parents. They were out in the waiting room. Hubby and my mom was with me in the labor room. Then hubby was the only one in the delivery room with me. I think MIL came to the recovery room. 

My mom stayed with me while hubby rode with son to the special children's hospital 50 miles away. His parents went home.
