A woman was having a baby in a birthing center, and her 3-year-old daughter was crying all the time. Her daughter kept asking why her mom was crying, and if she was hurt. The birthing center had someone to watch over her, and the child was kept safe by a dedicated nurse. But when the 3-year-old wanted to leave, her mom kept crying, and she couldn’t understand why she was upset.
Three year old in delivery room
One recent example of a mother and her daughter’s unusual delivery experience was when a woman was giving birth at a birthing center. Her three-year-old daughter kept asking her why her mom was crying and if she was hurt. She knew that someone was supposed to watch over her, but she wanted her mom’s undivided attention. A nanny was called. A babysitter was called to take care of the toddler, but it seemed like she was never left alone in the delivery room.
Mother-in-law’s objection to having a child in the delivery room
My husband and I were invited to a dinner by my mother-in-law who had made it clear she wanted to be in the delivery room. The author was mortified that she wanted to be in the room to witness the birth of her son. She asked to be seated in the delivery room, and the husband got angry, saying, “If you are going to let me come into the delivery room, then I’ll be there.”
Homebirth vs. hospital births
There are many benefits to home births, including a reduced disruption to a child’s daily routine. Also, parents can avoid having to pack up a car seat and hospital bag for their child. Home births are also a more convenient option for a new mom and her partner, as they can be more comfortable and relax without worrying about the risks of COVID-19. The benefits of home births are numerous and vary by family and location.
Safety of having older children in the delivery room
It’s safe to have older children in the delivery room if they are able to stay with you. Younger children need an adult to keep them occupied for hours during the delivery, and they often lack the patience to wait. Younger children might feel nervous and scared by all of the hospital equipment, while older children may not care as much. It’s also important to keep an eye on your child during the delivery, since he or she may get scared of the sounds of the labor process.
