Will be present with you when you give birth? If you have already had your baby, who was in the room with you?

With my son it was the nurse, two OB's (a resident and an intern) my mom and my DH. This time it will only be midwives and my DH.

with my first for labor it was my midwife and either my mom or DH (taking turns). During the actual delivery, about 5 nurses were there

second DH was pretty much the only one there during labor. My mom and the midwife came in a couple times for a minute or so, but otherwise it was just us. For the delivery, my mom, sister, DD, midwife, her assistant were also there.

Courtney, Nola, Kya, Whitney, and baby girl #5 coming soon!

With Vae I had my mom and SD. With Sophia I had my mom and Jeremy .. and with Noah I will have my mom and Jeremy if all goes as planned! I don't have a back up person if for some reason (most likely it would be my mom) couldnt make it.. but Im fine with that.

I'll have my DH, my midwife, an assistant (maybe more then one!), and a doula (also maybe more then one)....

Since I'll have worked with pretty much everyone I expect it to be a lot of fun

At this point I would like it to be DH, midwife and doula. But I've been creating some close bonds with some amazing NCB women lately so who knows if by then I would also want one of them there as well.
