So my 10 y/o daughter wants to be in the delivery room when I have the baby. She has been age-appropriately edcucated about sex and the human body. She is mature for her age and has been asking to see a sibling be born since her dad and stepmom had their first child together almost 3 years ago. She has 3 1/2 month old twin sisters by them as well but, even if they'd been willing to have her there for their birth she wouldn't have been able as they ended up being delivered by C-section. I think it would be a good life lesson as well as excellent birth control in the coming years, which is a concern younger and younger these days. I really see no problem with allowing her in the room and will, of couse, talk it over with her dad before making my final decision but I was curious about what others thought...
