A 40-year-old member asked:

How do I decide who should come in the delivery room with me?

Who supports best: You should have the people who can support you best during labor and delivery. This is a time where you can't be worried about them. If that means just one person is in the room, that will be best. You should also ask your doctor how many people they are comfortable with and how many will realistically fit in the room.

Depends on hospital : That depends on the hospital. Most have moved to private rooms that create a more homelike feel. Your local hospital website may have pics available for you to see.

Each case differs. Pam y.

Not necessarily: It depends on the size of the baby and the reasons for doing the assisted delivery. Sometimes you don't need an episiotomy, sometimes you do. Often that decision is made at the time of the assisted delivery.

Stay Healthy!: The best one can do is make sure to be eating healthy, get quality sleep and exercise. The rest is genetics, provided a chronic illness or the like doesn't interfere, which would be very unusual.
