Do you think it's ok for the pregnant person's mother and mother in law to throw her a shower?

My godmother threw my shower on my moms side. My step mother was gonna throw my shower on my dads side, but it never happened cuz my life kinda got crazy.

I think it's fine for anyone except the mother-to-be to throw a baby shower.....

 Where I live, it's VERY commonplace. Every shower I have ever been to has been thrown by the mother, mother-in-law or sister. Who else would throw it? Not being a bitch, just curious

Me and my soon to be husband had our own we hired a planner and it was AMAZE! It was our first baby so I wanted it perfectly how *I*wanted

Yes. Its tradition not to but I dont really see why not. My mother was uncomfortable being the one to throw mine but my mil threw me a surprise shower.
