My hospital didn't really care about how many people were there. When I was induced with my first, my sister and mom and MIL were in and out, but when he was born, it was just me and my husband (he came REALLY fast at the end!) Same story with my second delivery, only it was a full term delivery with an expected happier outcome, so EVERYONE wanted to visit. The induction took forever, and it was boring (we switched to a c-section in the end). So I had lots of people in an out. But I knew that as soon as I got close, EVERYBODY OUT! I just wanted my husband for the actual birth. That's how it was with the c-section - lots of doctors and nurses, but as for family, it was just me, my husband, and our new baby boy!

I allow any family to come in during the earlier stages of labor, and once I get an epidural, as long as delivery isn't super close they can come in and chat. However, I don't like for people to see me in pain, and I know I would suppress some of what I was feeling during delivery if it were anyone but DH. Every time I have entertained the idea of letting my mom and MIL into the room, but in the end I just can't do it. It is nice that it is just me and DH for a little while after the baby is born. (With a few billion nurses and doctors of course. )

I'm planning my 3rd home birth and in my previous ones, it was my midwife, her student, another midwife and my husband. That was all I wanted and needed. IF I have to go to the hospital this time, it'll just be my husband and whatever staff has to be in the room.

I'm still undecided. Definitely my DH, mom and two sisters. That may be it. Although this is my MIL's first grandchild, but she can be a bit intense in medical situations. Heck, every situation!

I am really private about it. I just want my mom and DH. I don't like anyone in the room while im laboring and i often even kick my mom and DH out until I have to push. I like to be left alone and have the room as quiet and dark as I can.

AFTER...I love visitors for the first day or so...then I like to be private again for a week or two until everyone adjusts. I've really upset my in-laws in the past by acting this way, but hopefully they are used to it by now!

I haven't decided on this yet. DH of course. I am not ready to think about my mom or his mom yet.

I was very very happy with the birth being just me and my sons father last time.

My mom was going to come out for the first one but she missed it by 2 days. Maybe this time she will make it lol. No one else around though, I dont want to have to worry about whos around when Im getting checked and stuff. Not all my or my DHs family needs to be seeing that.

With DD #1 it was my DH, MIL, my mom, Doula, Midwife, and whatever nurses needed to be in there. With DD #2 it was the same as before but my SIL got to stay too. If this one is sticky and makes it to that point I think i just want DH and me since we are going to have to have someone be with my girls. I want my girls to see their sibling first before anyone else in the family so they will be at the hospital as long as they dont miss school.

I'd like to have a friend of mine as support and have my husband at home with the kids, but he took offense to this, so it will be my kids at my friends house and my husband with me. To bad because he's kind of useless during a natural, no meds labor.

With my first my husband, mom, dad, MIL and best friends were in out during labor. Just my DH and mom were there for birth. Hospitals wig me out, especially when *I* was connected to all those leads so I didn't even tell people I was being induced besides the important ones. I didn't want people at the hospital besides the afore mentioned, it was GREAT. We got DS all to ourselves and I didn't have to have people buzzing around me while I was still leaking obscene amounts of human-building supplies. Once we were home we told people that he was here and they could come visit.

With this one, barring complications, we will have at home. Probably the same crowd, plus DS. Depends on how I feel then. I was terrified about the induction last time, but if I am confortable I might be more open to visitors.

I will have my DH and possibly my mom. With my first it was just them and the hospital staff, but i was a different experience this time, so If my mom cannot remain calm, then she will be booted out! Oh and we are having a birth photographer at our next birth!!!

I'm pretty set on just having my SO and my sister. Everyone else can hang out in the waiting room.
I figure I'll let my mom and his mom and dad come in fairly shortly after the birth, but I figure I'll want some quiet bonding time since I haven't had kids before.

I am a birth photographer, I LOVE shooting babies being born. It is such a special time.


I know for sure my daughter will be with me, other than that I am not sure. If my db wants to be in there, that will be fine with me. and possibly the adopting mother.

Keep intense relatives away! They can stall your labor, or just piss you off. I have a friend from MY May DDC (2010) who actually lied to her MIL about her due date! She's due any day, and her MIL doesn't realize it.
