This issue is one of the many reasons we've chosen to birth our first at home. I've had friends tell stories of the never ending barrage of visitors at all hours, and not wanting to be rude so they've just dealt with it. I feel so strongly about babymooning and it being just our little family for a while, basking in the bliss and getting to know each other. Both my mother and MIL live on the east coast, MIL has a flight booked for 6 weeks after our due date. SMIL and FIL live pretty close to us but they're pretty private people and I think they'll respect our need for space at that time.
Good luck, mama!
|she isn't there for support, but more to just see the birth and gossip about it to any and everyone later.|
