i am pretty sure she can... but that sounds stressful and horrible and no place for a toddler.

If you want her to be. I don't see why she couldn't.

She can be but it could be a very traumatic experience for her... You would need someone available to take her if she can't handle it



My daughters birthday is July 2nd :D

That's really no place for a young toddler. I wouldn't have my two year old in the room with me. I don't want him to see me like that. Knowing him, it would make him very upset. My 4 year old, I'd have her join me in a second.

My daughter was near two when I had my second. She was 19 months. I had her stay with a friend and then her and the friend came to the hospital after I gave birth.
