I'm watching one born every minute and this lady has her dad her FIL and her stepdad in the room with her..
I just couldn't imagine having my dad in the room with me lol and to be honest I really don't think he would want to be there either.
So, just out of curiosity, did you?

No, but with my first I was doing a home birth and he was in the next room... I wouldve been uncomfortable if he were in there watching. I dont think he wouldve minded though.

Not at delivery time, no. When I was in labor with DD1 he was there, but when it was nearing go time he made himself comfy in the waiting room. I do remember he walked in one time the Nurse was checking me, covered his eyes and yelled "Oh no!" and walked right back out. We all thought it was pretty funny.

No. I honestly don't think I'd be comfortable with any other male besides DH and doctors/nurses seeing my junk while delivering. :lol:

edit- well I had a c-section, but if I had gone naturally ^

Hell no. I met my bio-dad when I was 17 and our relationship didn't even make it to my 18th birthday - POS. I didn't have my step-dad in there either and he's been in my life since I was 1.... just too awkward in my opinion, but we weren't close either. I didn't want anyone but SO in there.

No, but Iv always delieverd vis c-section. With my first, before we knew it was a c-section my dad made it VERY clear that he did NOT want to be in the room. He said 'Call me when its all over and Ill go meet my grandbaby" lol

Well I ended up having a csection, but otherwise yes, I would have had him in there. I love my daddy, he would have wanted to see his grandson born. I'm hoping for a VBA2C, and if I do it, he will be in there.

No, because I despise my father and he despises me. I do know people who have a super close relationship with their fathers and had their dads in the room, I think it is beautiful.

I had a c-section, so the only person there was my husband. This time I've invited my dad in the room...its not weird for me at all.

I only wanted Dh with me during delivery. Everyone else was welcome to wait in the waiting room.
