Who was or will be your labor support person or team?

I'll just have DH with me. Think it'd be nice to have my good friend there, as I think she'd be great help, but I think it should just be a time for us.

I'll have just DH. I wanted a doula the first time around but DH objected strongly so he took labor support classes instead.

Sometimes I think it would be really cool to share the experience with one of our mothers or a friend - especially someone who has never seen a natural birth before - but then our mothers drive me nuts sometimes so not a good idea.

DH for sure. Hopefully, my best friend as well. She was there when both Lily and Vi were born. One of my SILs has asked to be there (she was there for Lily's birth), but we may need her to watch the girls instead depending on when I go into labor.

Just DH and whichever of my nurse friends that are working that day. DH was awesome last time though so he should be sufficient. haha

My DH and my cousin/bff will be in the room for the delivery. My sister will be right outside the door. She got to be in there for the first baby and i want my cousin who will never have children to be there. We're just 4 months apart in age and grew up together. It's special.

Dh, Doula & Of course hospital staff.
Should be more private since I am using the birth center in the hospital and not L&D.
