Who will be in the room with you when you give birth? Will it be just you and your DH/SO? Will you have friends and/or family members join you? Also, who do you think should have the final say on who gets to be in the room with you? Since it is your labor and delivery, should that be left up to you?

As DH always feels sick or like he's gonna blackout in hospital, there'll be him for as long as he can stomach it plus my mother for when he leaves!

Just DH and I. I really want to the labor and delivery to be as calming as possible and I feel like if there were more people in the room it would be distracting.
