After some really terrible births, my parents ended their long baby-making careers (11 kids) as big proponents of NCB and Midwives. If they were not supportive of NCB, I would have asked them to wait in the waiting room and just had DH there. I also had the benefit of several sisters having them attend their births before me and giving them good reviews on knowing when to step in and play a role and when to stay out of it. My relationship with my mother isn't always the best, but she is very intuitive, experienced and supportive when it comes to giving birth.
