Older children present at the birth?

If mine were older, we would consider it.
But as it stands, I think they are too young to get any benefit from it. And it could potentially be a negative experience for them. Plus, I would be too distracted to really concentrate on the task at hand.
A friend of mine had her 5-year-old at the birth of his younger brother and he did rather well. She had an epidural, which I think helped, since he didnt perceive his mom in pain. And he thought it was neat to see how the baby came out. So that is about the youngest age I would consider letting a child at my birth.
Super big thanks to Jaidynsmum for my cool siggy!
