out of curiosity what would be the best way to tell someone that you do not want them there when you give birth? a nice way.

"Hubby and I would like privacy so that we can enjoy our special time to ourselves."

"We are only allowed X guests and it was decided to be Y and Z's turn."

Don't call them until after the delivery.   "It was so fast, oops!"



Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers ~ strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.

It would depend on who it was.. For a mother: I have NO idea b/c I had been contemplating that one until my mom told me that she probably won't be here by the time I'm in labor.. And for anyone else, they don't have a problem w/not being in there. They're good w/waiting in the waiting room.

I might just say that the hospital won't allow it just to keep from making it sound really personal.   Assuming you are having a hospital birth.

That is tough!  My mom is sooo annoying when I am in labor.  1 birth she was singing country songs about being a wishy washy girl because I would tell my husband to massage me then to get away from me. LOL! Another birth she was taking pictures but couldn't figure out how to work my camera. I was delivering my own baby, my hands were on his head and she kept trying to get me to grab the camera and show her how to use it.  Being tactful but direct can be so hard.

 Well... it depends on the circumstance... for example...

If you only plan on you and your husband ... then just let them know that you and your husband are wanting it to be a private moment for just you guys to experience and that people are welcome shortly after.

If you plan on having others... then let them know that they may be restricting the # of people in the room with you and you already have your maximum???

I dont know ha ha...

i always told everyone that giving birth is a personal PRIVATE moment and i only wanted me and my hubby. And if they didn't like that too bad!
