We let our cats roam since they were more interested perching off the top of the couches. Our one dog at the time we had to lock up. He's a barker and while he is harmless, new people come around and he doesn't shut up. So I didn't want him yapping while I was in labor.
Good point!! I didn't think about the pugs! LuLu is a barker at loud noises, doors slamming...and they both want to be on your lap all the time so I guess thye'll have to go to their sitters. One less thing to worry about!
We have a cat and a dog. The cat can roam and not be in the way...he's indoor outdoor anyhow. The DOG, on the other hand, will have to be locked out of the main living area. She really doesn't like new things happening and change and lots of people...she'll be all freaked out and in the way. She can't stand when my midwife comes and touches me. She gets all protective. So, while she wouldn't actually HURT anyone, she'd definitely be an unwelcome distraction in more ways than one, unfortunately.
ESTHER GRACE WAS BORN ON MARCH 23RD, 2009: 4:15 PM, 9 POUNDS, 20.5 INCHES. ANOTHER WONDERFUL HOME WATER BIRTH!!!
The world today is upside down because there is so very little love in the home, and in family life. We have no time for each other. Everybody is in such a terrible rush, and so anxious…and in the home begins the disruption of the peace of the world. -Mother Teresa~
Our yapper dog was out....he loves people and was awesome with the MWs they loved him too. He'd only bark when people went past but I just ignored it. Didn't bother me. He was sweet too, whenever I was making primate noises he'd come over to the pool and check on me.
I'm definitly going to take mine to the boarding facility we use...My english bulldogge gets concerned when your in the bath, and then tries to lick all the water so i definitly wont want her licking up the birthing pool! lol And my other one is sweet, and loves everyone, but I'd want her with ym bulldogge so they dnt get anxiety b/c they'reseperated.
My dogs are usually outside. We didn't have dogs with Kiera (my first homebirth). We had one dog, he was 4 months, with Julius and he was inside for much of my (4 hour) labour, but was kicked outside before he was born. With Sebastien the dogs (two) were both outside...
My cats have never been an issue or concern, they had/have free roam like always.
