Would you have your mother inlaw present for birth?
When Bentley was being born I asked my husbands mom to please stay out until everything was settled and then she could come see him. I just felt uncomfortable with her there, she didn't listen as soon as he was born while I was still half naked being stitched she snuck in for a picture. I felt sort of like she violated my personal space. I didn't even know she did it until two weeks ago (he's 18 months old now) when I found the pic on her computer. So here's the question how would you feel about your m.i.l being in the room for the birth or while your still exposed? Is there a line you draw with who's allowed in there?
I wouldn't let mine, either, but I would my mother...maybe.
But, it's a personal and intimate moment for me and my hubby.
