I have been thinking about having my 3 yr old daughter in the birth room when I have my new baby. She is very excited about the baby, enjoys helping my do anything about the baby and fully understands that mommy's dr. is to help mommy make sure the baby is ok. She has also already watched developement and birth videos with me and is completly calm and relaxed. She's not sqeemish nor scared of hospitals, dr's ect... Actually she has come to my aide on more then one occasion. I have had problems with low blood pressure and has resulted in fainting spells, which she would then get me a pillow and with her little strength put it under my head, get me a blanket, put my cell phone by my side then go and get my bf then come back and sit right beside me holding my hand. (I only know this from her and my bf telling me)
Does it seem like she would be ok to be there when I give birth or should I have her wait with grandma?
