ok so this is not exactly about birth but its a concern i have that revolves around birth
Mods please move this if you please
my EDD is 8/12 and my mother is flying up to be there for me, the only problem is im worried about how she will interact with my father (they havent seen each other in 24 years) and how she will deal with my step mum (they have never met) my step mum wants to be close by as she is like a mum to me. i just dont wanna have to mediate between them while im in labour and i dont wanna exclude any one. Dad will obviously not be present till after bubbby is born.
Both have obviously re married and gone separate ways (they didnt meet at my wedding coz mum wasnt invited due to issues i had with her).
Im anxious about this more then anything else and im the one giving birth.
can anyone offer any advice, maybe something i could say to them or a way to organise so mum and dad dont see each other.
