First off, WELCOME to JM's Birth Mom's board.

It's not odd at all to want the perspective parents in the room. I wanted her parents in the room but was unable to because they lived too far to make it in time. It was kind of frowned upon at the agency I went through as well. It's not unheard of though.. and frankly, it is a beautiful thing.

I have a very open adoption and Katie's adoptive mother was present for my youngest daughter's birth in November. It was kind of strange because she had NO idea what to do/expect etc. So, you may just want to be sure she is educated on what to expect/do. The only reason I say that is because she was a bit panicky because she didn't understand I couldn't talk during contractions etc. Overall though, I LOVED having her there to experience such a beautiful experience with us.

It's good to have you here and we have a great support network going here. I hope you stick around for the process. It really helps to have women who have been through it to talk to during and after the process.
