Hi all, I'm in the very early stages of pregnancy #2 and our parents and in laws live overseas. I don't plan on asking my parents to fly over for the birth of our second child because they're old and it's quite troublesome for them. Since we don't have family support here, I'd like to ask if anyone has tried having a toddler with them during childbirth? We have some great friends and neighbours around but I'm not sure if they're willing to be called in middle of the night. Also, I haven't spent a night away from DD1 since she was born and she probably wouldn't like the idea of being with someone else. DH would be with me throughout the whole time but considering his attention is going to be split between me and looking after DD1 at the hospital, I might not have him all the time for support during labour if DD1 needs to be taken out of the room for any reason. Any advice on how we could go about this? DD1 will be 27 months old when bub is due.
