Re: My mom is trying to take over my birthing!
I get that you don't want to hurt her feelings or dampen her excitement but honestly this is just going to be the first of MANY times where you will have to stand up for your choices/desires/plans/wishes as a parent, so you really should practice now lol. Just let her know that her support is important to you and you want her there but it is going to be your and DHs special time and she needs to respect that. And tell your DH that while he is prepared to support and advocate for you during labor he also has to stand his ground if needed.
