Who to invite
My husband and I are first time parents with a daughter due in August. We are both pretty reserved and private people so our original plan was to have just the two of us in the delivery room. This way it was more private and an experience we could share just between the two of us. We haven't told anyone this plan yet, but now I am wondering if I should invite my mom in. This will be her first grandchild and I know that she would love to be present, plus the extra help might be nice. But then I don't want to be in a situation where she is invited in during delivery, but my husband's mom isn't; I don't want to hurt her feelings. I am not asking for an answer, but what would help my decision, I think, is to hear stories from other moms. Was it just you and your coach (husband, wife, or whomever)? Did you have your mom in addition to your coach? Did you have your coach and both moms? Do you wish you would have done things differently? Thank you in advance!
