Question for the Answer Box (i.e. responses from YOU!): We are working on our birth plan. Outside of those necessary (hospital/birthing center staff), who did you opt to have with you during labor?
Just my DH - partly because we don't have family in the area and also because I think the fewer distractions, people to offer advice the better. I wasn't opposed to a midwife/coach, but decided we didn't really need that since I have a really supportive husband!
