7Does she have a good relationship with your spouse?
The next thing that you need to consider when making this decision is the relationship your mother shares with your spouse. This aspect should particularly be taken into consideration if you wish to have both your partner/husband and your mother with you during the birth.
To be honest, having both your
spouse and your mother around in the delivery room can be very beneficial for you. For starters, it will make it possible for both birthing partners to take breaks and relax while the other takes charge. Moreover, there will always be someone around you so there wouldn’t be a moment when you will be alone and unsupported.
However, things are only going to work out smoothly if your mother and your spouse share a good relationship. If they aren’t close to each other, it will only trigger stress in the labor room, which would obviously create problems for you during childbirth.
