Yes. The nurses won't let them in.

Yep! I did. It was really easy and the nurse was awesome about it.

So do I just tell the nurses "i dont want my parents here, not even in the waiting room?" How will they know who they are?

First of all, I wouldn't tell your parents you went into labor.



Second of all, hospitals need you to sign in. You could even tell them you don't want any visitors, or give them the names of those you don't want visiting.

You can make yourself and NFP (not for publication), which means that the hospital can't even tell anyone you're there. If someone calls to ask if you're a patient, they have to say no. If you want certain people there that don't come with you, you might be able to set up a code name with the nurses that your visitors can ask for so those select people can be let in.

Wow, that is ridiculous. :? Sorry you had to go through that, especially when you're so close to popping. I'd be furious.

You do not have to inform them when you go into labor. And there is this law called the Hippa Law (patient privacy act). If you do not want anyone to be there let them know. they are bound as medical professionals by this law to honor your wishes. I know Cajuns can be pretty roudy and unreasonable at times. Sorry you are having to go to such extreme measures. Good Luck Hun, praying for a stress free delivery!!
