Hi, I am due to have my first baby anytime now, and I was wondering what everyone thought about deciding who should be in the delivery room. I personally only want my husband in there, but our parents are acting offended at even the thought of not being in the room. It has nothing to do with them; for 1: I feel more comfortable it just being my husband and I. 2: I want some time to get cleaned up, and for just us to hold the baby for a couple minutes before everyone else comes. They are acting like it is selfish to wat only the two of us in the room. But they can come in shortly after. Thoughts anyone?View Thread
