At first I just wanted my fiance and my mom. Then I told my fiance's mom she could come in when I started pushing (she really wanted to be there). Then my best friend/roomate from University was there and I told her she might as well stay!

I didn't think I'd want that many people but it was nice having all the support and encouragement when pushing!!!

I only had DH. My Sister was there during labor and then came in after the baby was delivered. Our limit at the hospital I am delivering is 3ppl. They changed it to three when the whole SARS thing was going on and never changed it back to whatever it was before.

With my daughter it was her father and my mother.

With this one it will only be my FI. And maybe my good friend.....depends on if she is able to get there (she has 4 kids of her own!)

When I had my first, my hubby was the only one in the room. Once I started pushing he called the family and told them to come as the baby would arrive soon. We got lucky because there was a family re-union starting the next day, so my parents and both my sisters were able to come. His parents and sister were also able to make it. They all waited in the hall - I was not so cool with the idea of anyone seeing my hoo-hoo - that's why DH was the only one in the room.

This time I will be having a c-section and I am only allowed to bring one person in - so that will be DH.

Obviously, my dh was in the room all 4 times. With my third I had a friend there too, I asked her to come because she had 4 c-sections and always felt like she missed out on a "normal" birth. It was nice to have her there.

#1 - DH, MIL, and her Godmother
#2 - DH, and our doula

#3 was at home - DH, midwife, 2 RNs (1 as 'back-up' and one as a friend) and a nursing student doing her 2nd year project (she now is going on to midwifery and before Kieras' birth said there was no way she wanted to go into birth at all).

#4 - DH, and the kids are the plans.

Brandy are you having an unassisted childbirth or will you have a midwife(presuming you're having this one at home too,lol)

With #1 there was dh, the dr, 2 nurses and a EMT in training during birth, prior it was mostly me & dh.

With #2 there was dh, the dr & 2 nurses during birth, prior it was me, dh & a nurse alot of the time. The nurse was nice so I didn't care, she just chatted with us.

With #3 during labour there was dh, 2 nurses, sometimes a 3rd or 4th nurse and a couple of dr's. During birth there was dh, 3 nurses & 2 dr's.

If there was to be a 4th(which there won't) it'd be at home with me, dh, the kids, a doula from out of town(I don't trust any of the ones here) & perhaps a midwife or I'd do unassisted.
