My kids will be 2.5 to 14 years old. If birth happens in the middle of the night we won't wake the youngest two, but we will have everyone else there that would like to be there. We do have people there just to watch the kids so we can just focus on the birth. I love having my kids present. We usually ask if they want to be there when I am close to pushing and they help cut the cord and diaper and dress the baby. It truly feels like they are welcoming the baby to the family.
