Having my mom there was everything. My husband was there too, but after a while (probably around 9 centimeters or maybe even during transition), I needed him to leave me alone. My mom and my nurse (who happened to be my classmate during nursing school) were the only two people I really wanted near me until it was time to push.

If it's at all possible, I think you would really benefit from your mom being there. If not, a supportive female friend who isn't afraid of being in the delivery room. Hope something works out for you! And I think you may be pleasantly surprised, my husband isn't a "hospital" person either but he really pulled through. He was great during the delivery of our son.
