Im really seeking some answers to a question that is bugging me! Mother-in-law is assuming she will be at my labour, but i really dont think im comfortable with her being there - slightly personal i believe!HELP ME PLEASE!
HOw did she come to that conclusion? Think I'd leave that one to DH to tell her that he's going to be there and that the midwives don't allow more than one person in the labour suite. She'll never know.........unless she's a midwife obviously! Or I'd tell her straight that you would simply like your DH to be there. You feel it's a personal thing between DH and you and you know you won't upset her and thank you for taking an interest.....and you think she'll be much more help afterwards once you're home etc. Don't leave it up in the air though or it'll never be resolved and unless you're assertive and if she's manipulative like many MILs are, DH will side with her and you'll end up with her there.
Noticed this is incorrect place should be on pregnancy thread! so cut and pasted the reply!
Thanks all - my mum was always there but since she passed( still so fresh ) MIL is saying shes goin to be there, im cringing at the thought! and i feel the memory that i have of giving birth with my mum by myside will be spoilt!
