I was hesitant about having my mom there. I am still torn over whether I should have invited her. I don't know what she got out of it. I know it only brought me stress and contributed to me having a labor twice as long as the rest. I really wanted her here, but I wanted her without her anxiety, stress, and baggage. She came with her baggage blazing. Ugh. I still can't decide if it was better than not having her here. I did have the baby eventually, but I worried so much about my mom that it was hard for me to let go and let labor...
