My mom and MIL were there during labor, but when my MIL kept talking on her cell phone, my MOM asked her to leave and talk in the waiting room!

I was SOOOOO thankful!

My other 2 kids were c-secs, so only hubby and I were there. I really liked it that way, only because you get some time together before everyone rushes in. My mom brought the other kids in a little later to see there sibling and it was wonderful. My mom really ROCKS!!

But for people who are comfortable with it, I'm sure it's a wonderful experience for either mother. Just not my thing.

DITTO

I only wanted Dh and actually, nobody else asked/wanted to be there...so it worked for me! LOL!

I feel the same way. For me, I need my privacy, but I don't think it's odd when others want their Mom or MIL there. Just personal preference.

No way would I let that happen. I love my MIL, she's great. But if anyone other than hubby is going to be in the delivery room it would be my mom. But I don't even want her in there.

Both were C sections, so it wouldn't of mattered to me to be honest. DH was the only one in the room with me.

I have a great relationship with my MIL, however she will NOT be in the delivery room with me at all during any delivery of my children now or in the future. She and my FIL live 5 minutes from the hospital and we didn't call them until after we had DD because we knew they would be there ASAP. They got there before I was taken out of the delivery room to my regular room and I was upset about that but too tired to say anything. We are going to do the same with this delivery, except we will call them after I am in my regular room! IMO, the only people I want with me in the delivery room are DH and the doctor and nurses that are needed.

I voted WEIRED beacuse it would be that way for me. I don't think it would be that way for everyone.

IT is in my case because I want to hold my baby first and MY MIL would RUN SPRINT LEAP AND JUMP to get to the baby FIRST becaus that is how she is and looses all inabition when around babies.

I will have another c-section and I know she would be beggin dh while I was in recovery and get her way. We are NOT even telling her when I am schecduled we will call her when I am out of recovery.

I don't think it's a question of whether it's wierd or not, it's just what you are comfortable with. For me childbirth is not a spectator sport. My parents and inlaws were in the lounge. I was only comfortable with having dh there.

I voted weird as in for me. I don't really like my mother in law and am uncomfortable around her in normal situations. If I was close to her I would think about it but that would only be if my mom could not make it for some reason. Luckily I didn't have to worry about it the last two births were c-sections.

My dh, my mom and my dad, were present at all of mine. My last baby, my 6yr. old dd cut the cord. My ML had no desire to be present or see the video.
