decision to make

Miss K was awake last night so laying in bed with me and she asked if she can be there when the baby is born, she wants to know how it all works etc, Ben has said its my decision to make and I am torn in many directions over it.

In some ways I would like to have her there to witness the birth etc and maybe so that she doesn't go into adulthood fearing birth, but I also don't want her to see me in pain, I wont be having any pain relief unless absolutely necessary so it can get a bit intense. I was wondering if maybe I let her on the terms that she has a support person that she can talk to etc and leave if she wants, my sister will be here the week bubs is due so could possibly do that job.

I am really quite conflicted on this and would love some advise.

I think it is awesome if your kiddo wants to be there. I would have been at my brother's birth if it wasn't by c-section. I think she does need a support person.

I am thinking she would need a support person too, its just really strange as I didnt think she would want to be, but then shes been so excited this whole pregnancy that it would be nice for her to be there
