My husband and I are planning a homebirth for April. We are considering whether or not to have our older children (9yrs, 6yrs, and 4yrs) present at the birth. I want to remain flexible about the issue. I have asked them if they want to be present, and they are thinking about it. Whatever comes when it is time for the arrival of our new addition, I want them to be prepared. Does anyone have recommendations for some videos that might be helpful in this regard?
I am also very open to hearing your experiences about older children being present at your births. :)
