Quoting melindabelcher:Who was present for your labor and delivery? My husband and best girl friend
why was each person there? Husband - obvious reasons. My best friend, because my husband doesn't do well will medical stuff, and I really wanted her there to help me through the scary stuff. She didn't get there till after my epidural (that I was planning on not having) but she was a great support to both of us when my baby almost died a few times. We share the same faith too.
Would you have it the same way again? Why/why not? What would you plan for next time if different? I'm pregnant right now, planning a birth center natural birth, and I invited my friend to be there again. She knows why I want a natrual birth, and I think she'll be a great help if not to me, but to my husband. She may not be able to be there, and I'm okay with that too. My mom lived across the country with my first, but now lives a mile away. I wanted her there, but she's too chicken to see me in pain, so she won't be there. And then I was hoping my 16 year old sister would want to be there, but her anxiety has her second guessing. I only want people there who are okay with me yelling and screaming at them to get out if I end up not wanting them there. lol
