At my hospital, it's usually only one person. You'd have to check with your hospital, though.

Call your hospital and ask what their regulations are.

At my hospital it was only one person unless you were out under. Then no one.

I've never had a c-section, but I've been present for a couple, and only one support person was allowed in the room.

You are in an OR during a c-section. Only 1 person is allowed in with you due to space and it being a sterile environment unless you are being put under and then it's only you.

You can have one person with you unless you need to be put under. If you're put under, nobody is allowed in.



I've had one c/s each way

I have only ever known 1 to be in the room but I'm not familiar with your hospital's protocols. Best to ask your doctor.

Most of the time it's only 1 person, but sometimes the doctor will allow you to have two. Talk to the Dr. my hubby's step mom had her husband the photographer both in the room for her c-section.
