8What sort of a relationship do you have with her?
One of the most important aspects to take into consideration is the sort of relationship the two of you share. If you’re very close to her, there’s a good chance that you will want to hold her hand all through labor. However, if you don’t have a close bond with
her, then she might not be able to offer the support that you need at such a crucial time.
When you head to the hospital to deliver your baby, it's necessary for you to be with someone you can be 100% comfortable with. If you have unresolved past issues with your mother, there's no chance that you'll be comfortable with having her in the delivery room. Although you may want to reconcile with her during this time, the plan may backfire and will only cause you stress, which will eventually trigger complications in your labor.
