How are FIFO families planning labour/delivery and their OH's leave/holiday?
I have had my OH only at our 2 labours, both times i relied on him heavily (first was a sick bub and second i had a big bleed and landed in ICU), both times were vaginal births, one induced and one spontaneous.
I know i will likely go overdue so would hate to preemptively book holiday leave and bub not arrive for a few weeks following but also don't like the thought of labouring alone.
He is confident his work will allow him to book a rough time for holiday and leave when he gets the call which seems the most logical option, but means i will labour on my own.
Has anyone hired someone or used a friend or family member (i struggle with the thought of having family or friend there).
