So i am 10weeks of having my 2nd little man but i am having some problems with what will happen with DS1 whilst i am in labour.
He will be 15months when bub is born and we only have my mum here to help with him when i am in labour.
Problem is my mum is a drinker so can't drive to us at night if i go into labour at night, she can look after him during the day but starts drinking at 5pm and i am not sure how comfortable i am her looking after him at night. Don't get me wrong her life her choice if she is happy thats all that matters but she does get to the sluring unable to talk state pretty much every night.
Anyway so this means we may have to take DS1 to the delivery suite with us. I am going to sunnybank private in brisbane, i'm not even sure if we can take him in, if anyone knows please let me know.
But other than that has anyone had a toddler in the room while labouring? The other half will have to look after him but i could imagine it would be so hard to contain them and keep them out of medical equipement. Then during the pushing stages what do u do with him?
We might just have to have DH look after him and i labour alone but then Dh misses the birth of his son and i'm not sure the hospital will let me labour alone either? Especially if i am going to have an epidural?
I feel in such a pickel and ratger anxious about it. My obgyn said i will know whats going on more now its number 2 but i certainly don't feel that way.
Anyone else been in a similar situation?
