I had a damn audience when i gave birth. My SO,mom,sister where there. Then 10 other people were in the room i believe they were medical students in training they came in the last 5mins of me pushing. It was kind of awesome at the end they were all cheering me on.
I had my Fiance and my mum, i couldn't have done it without them :), i wouldn't have felt comfortable if his mother was there too.
