We're at home and we've got quite the "team" although I reserve the right to have hubby send any of them to the showers
Midwife, husband, one of two doula friends who are going to "tag-team doula" for me (they both have kids etc. and may have to trade off) my mom will be there to help with my two daughters, who will also be there, and possibly my mother in law, and possibly my friend who is due a week later than I am with her first (she lives a block away).
Luckily we have a guest shack with heat, a bathroom and a TV so the grandmas and girls can escape out there and watch movies/sleep if I need some space, yet they will be close enough to summon for the big moment. My oldest daughter is 12 and seems to want to be more involved this time.
I have worried about it being too many people (although during past labors I didn't notice who was in the room one bit) I have still discussed with my husband and the others that I might want "space" and not to be offended.
I ran into a former professor who is teaching anthropology of reproduction next quarter and she jokingly asked if she could bring her class
what a field trip!
