Typically you can plan to have up to three people in the delivery room with you. Some hospitals may allow less and some may allow more. Check with your health care provider about what is allowed in the hospital or birth center where you plan to deliver.

In general, a standard hospital policy states that you can have two or three people in the delivery room. Some hospitals indicate you can only have two people, but a majority allow a. The number of people allowed in the delivery room will vary by hospital.

Some hospitals have strict rules allowing only two or three people in the room at one time. Typically, that means the partner or coach and one other guest. For the most part, hospitals have rules regarding labor and delivery, and the amount of people allowed is no exception. “Every hospital will have different policies regarding the number of people.

We allow as many people as you want, but they all must stay on one side of the room when it comes to actual delivery time. Every hospital is different so you should call yours and find out. And it’s your birth so you should only have people there you want to be there. How Are Labor and Delivery Rules Changing? Many hospitals have announced visitor restrictions and many now only allow one support person to be present during labor and delivery and throughout the.

The staff attending you need to be able to take care of you, that means if you invite 10 people and the room holds 3 there is a space issue that means your care providers will likely clear the room in order to work with you and no one gets to come in then. In many Kaiser Permanente facilities, physicians and midwives work together so they can give you more personalized care and attention during labor. All of our doctors and midwives have had rigorous training — and plenty of experience —so you and.

Still, if you do end up giving birth in the delivery room, be aware that there are a lot of machines and instruments that can look frightening at first glance, but rest assured, they’re there to ensure you deliver a healthy baby — and the staff are pros who have used them thousands of times before. In most areas, you’re only allowed one person in the labor and delivery room with you. However, you are welcome to use FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, etc.

  • The less people in the hospital right now the better. They don’t need any extra people walking around possibly spreading the coronavirus. If people don’t get that you’re stupid and selfish. Not to mention you could pick it up there and bring it home to your baby.

  • Honestly, if my husband couldn’t be with me, then they will need extra nurses to rub my back and feet, etc. Because no way can I even make it through that without support and comfort.

  • This is totally outrageous that is absolutely taking rights away especially for the father! sorry ladies I would definitely give birth at home leave these hospitals out of the equation entirely! Their next move is they won’t release the baby unless everybody in the household gets tested for Covid 19!

  • My son is due in a few months n I swear to god I’ll do my c section at home my damn self if his father isn’t allowed in the room. I’m extremely high risk so carrrying full term is already putting my life at risk. I will not go thru that without my husband. Period

  • Even back then, men loved their wives more than their wives loved them, or their presence.. Not much has changed, women, by and large, still secretly believe they’ve ‘settled’ for a lesser man, and that they’d rather their husband was only around to lighten or completely negate burdens that she can possibly completely avoid with his help, whereas childbirth, well, whether he’s present or not, he can’t lighten the load, so many of these older generation women don’t see much point in his presence..

  • It’s not about the father being in there for the baby and seeing them for the first time, it’s about the mother and needing support through it. It’s very scary and I couldn’t imagine doing it alone. ��

  • I’m lucky that kaiser allows one support person in delivery with the mothers. I’m due any moment and couldn’t imagine not having my husband with me

  • There’s an old man at the Walmart that greets people that told me when I was walking in that real men don’t watch the birth of their children that’s a woman’s job. Like I didn’t even ask oldman

  • I think that this change in rules is understandably hard but if a hospital is making new rules for the safety of their patients then I think that the people need to obey the new rules

  • They likely live in the same household as the father, the father probably drove them there and walked them up to the deliver ward, I dont see how keeping them out is doing anything for protection against the virus. All this is doing is adding more stress onto expecting moms during these frightening times.

  • Yes because the virus will look at that and ay “awwww okay, she needed support. I’ll leave them alone”. Passover is a story. It’s not a real thing.

  • I’m due in 8 weeks.. and I’m not worried or upset over my husband not being able to be in the delivery room… woman have had kids with out the spouse being able to be in the room back in the day. So that’s whatever to me lol but what I am really upset about is my babies not being able to come see me or there baby brother after I have him. But I do understand why they’re doing this it just really sucks I won’t be able to see my two other children while I am in the hospital. I’ll have to pray for mental and emotional strength cuz I love my kids.

  • That’s stupid the dad should be able to be there I mean the dad is gonna be around with the baby anyway.thank goodness this didn’t happen when I was pregnant

  • I talked about this with my husband. With everything going on I’d rather my kids be home and safe with their dad and the baby stay in my room. It’s such a small problem compared to everything else going on.

  • Have a waiver signed if the partner insist and if the baby turns out to be covid positive they should be the ones to blame not the hospital.

  • Its ok if your husband can handle it, my husband was asked to leave by a nurse cause he start crying after seeing me in pain and they afraid he might faint considering how pale his face

  • I would gladly assualt anyone who would try and prevent me from witnessing the birth of my child
    I could knock out one of those nurses so easy
    Fun part would be trying to fight the police
    Which will end up being a losing battle but ill still try

  • My husband and Mom will be the only ones in the room. I also don’t want any visitors after I deliver, it’s bad enough the nurses will keep coming in & out of the room to check on you and the baby. I feel like that’s me & my husbands time to relax, enjoy our baby, and bond��

  • Remember on old shows like I love Lucy when the fathers were in the waiting room and the nurses would bring the baby’s out from behind glass for them to see?

  • This policy will do more harm then good it will force woman who didn’t already have home birth plans into unplanned home births so they can have support around them

  • With how crazy and dramatic society is, I’m perfectly fine with this. It not only protects the baby, but it is also protecting the hospital from patients screaming at them with lawyers at their side.

  • Not me.!
    .get away from me
    There’s no way im bringing more kids into this crazy / unsafe as world�� n more woman should think the same way!!!

  • The child is already going home with the father so this makes absolutely no sense. They’re no way the father of my child isn’t going to be able to see the birth of their child.

  • From San Francisco CA, this hasn’t happened yet but I am 36 weeks pregnant today and I’m hoping that my partner is at-least allowed in the room. Just one person only is fine for me. And this is first child so can you imagine how hurtful it is to not experience this together. I see some comments saying “oh well the baby will go home to see father” however to have that support is important.

  • I have a uncle that was the father of 5 children. He dropped his wife off at the hospital and said call me when you’re ready to come home he did this with all five births never went inside the hospital

  • I have a whole bunch of family that thinks it’s okay to invite themselves to my delivery so I made it very clear that I only really want my husband there with me and maybe my mother. Nothing wrong with telling people it’s your time, they’ll get over it when they hold your baby at home anyway.

  • ABC….come on…….. Stop trying to cover. The whole world knows you your media buddies and your Democrat friends don’t want father’s to exist at all. If they did the crime rate in inner cities would drastically drop then they would have nothing to blame on president trump and conservatives

  • I don’t think anyone should be forced to watch the whole delivery. Some of the sights can render weaker individuals unconscious (especially if it’s a c-section). But a father should take a peak when they hear their child cry for the first time.

    My son was just born on 8/27/20 at 8:12am (that was when he first breathed air and cried) via c-section. That initial moment creates a bond and flips the parenting switch on immediately. It will also pull at your heart strings a lot. It summarizes the whole experience and makes it so much more special. There is nothing more powerful of an emotion in this whole world than when you witness first hand the birth of new life especially if it is of your own flesh and blood.

  • Well thought i was a private person until the real labour kicked in and i am so glad i had my man’s support at that time. Sometimes we don’t even know the answer ourselves until we have been there.

  • I think yes. Nice how some men think, that it would strengthen their bond. Its a very powerful moment. I agree. Plus, its their child too!!!

  • It’s so interesting how people take the time to think before they answer and you can see are giving genuine answers and not answers that are expected from the camera. Nowadays with the plethora of digital content, people ‘act’ in front of the camera instead of giving intelligent and thoughtful responses.

  • It seems like some of the women just wanted privacy because of the pain and the mess. Today we actually look forward to not giving birth alone if we are lucky enough.

  • The absolute most amazing experience in my life was watching my Children being born. I was a street kid and a Soldier, a commercial fisherman and a Lager…I’m not a pussy, trust me. But, to leave the woman I impregnated alone in birth would negate every tiny bit of courage I showed in my life. Be there, hold her hand and Thank God for a healthy child.

  • I insisted on my husband being there. He doesn’t get to shoot up some sperm inside me and then sit in a cozy room 9 months later whilst I go through the most traumatic experience of my lifeno no, he’ll watch and he will hold my hand as well as help me through it best he can; and that was the best decision I ever made in my life. Husband said he had a whole new level of respect and appreciation for me after witnessing everything I went through to bring our children into this world; not only that, but he said he wouldn’t trade places even if someone offered him millions

  • The best point made in this video is the question. Do you think husbands should watch the birth of their child? Key word: Husband; I think the take away that people should note here is dont have babies out of wetlock. Get married first.

  • I don’t know..I mean my mother had my brothers and I without my Dad in the delivery room and she survived. But that was in the 1940’s and they did not allow that back then. Come on its not the end of the world people.

  • This is so right, I ended up taking my mother along as she especially came for the baby from a different country and I realised it was a huge mistake as she was panicking and she didn’t get along with my husband either

  • My husband, stood beside me…I was covered up. I, personally, could have let him wait outside the door. It was personal for me, too. ��

  • If he has it then she most likely has it and now the baby and staff will have it because they were all in same room so close together
    This is retarded

  • I’m 24 having my first child in July. I really hope this is all settled down by then. I can’t even imagine having to go through birth without my mom and my husband.

  • This don’t make sense because the father has been around the mother the whole pregnancy and once the baby is born the baby is going home to the father. So I don’t get the difference this is going to make.

  • the first man. yes exactly. it’s a very amazing beautiful experience.
    this kind of reminds me of the on the street interviews people do now ahhaa wow so people these days didn’t think of it.
    how tf would it destroy them damn…
    wow they talked way different than we do today ��
    1:23 ����

  • “Women should have their privacy at that time.”
    Yes it should be private, strictly between the mother and strangers watching her do it.

  • Crazy to see the range of voices, many of the people here would have remembered Australia as a British colony, some might have born in the 19th century, crazy how we have these links to a different time…

  • I was actually surprised how many men in this video actually felt positive about being present at the birth of their children. Even some of the older gentlemen. Considering it wasn’t really too common during that time, it’s really positive to hear that enough men where at least interested to share this experience with their wife’s and support them. Especially the gentlemen who also said that he would think it’s OK If the wife wants him there, basically saying that the women’s wellbeing is the most important thing at this point.
    Really interesting

  • Now should a man share with his wife the birth of a fart?
    Well my opinion, yes, the man struggle to keep gas inside, but a fart could also explain the birth of universe itself!

  • Considering how painful and terrifying birth is, I personally figured you would want your spouse by your side during the process if possible, or at the very least, someone else close to you. On a totally unrelated note, apparently women use around 2 days worth of energy (4000+ calories) in just the final push of birth ALONE. No wonder it’s so exhausting ��

  • The “depends” guy at 2:01 is admirably intelligent.
    If I married a worrier, a pleaser, or someone overly eager to be supportive, for instance, I’d probably not want him to be beside me.
    It really depends on the couple, I believe, even nowadays.

  • Every girl here want to marry those men who said things like sharing and all,but no one has the class to act like a lady at that time who respect their husbands.

  • It’s quite interesting to see the older woman’ saying it would bring them no joy or no attachment for a man to see u give birth. That’s weird af.

  • 15 weeks pregnant with 2nd baby and thinking of having a home birth. We can’t leave our daughter with anyone anyway so might aswell

  • They need to find a away for the father to be there. Him not being there can interrupt the bond between father and baby. He’ll know it’s his by looking at the baby, but a very special bond forms immediately after birth and holds him or her for the first time. Anyone that’s been in the delivery room and held the baby right after birth knows what I’m talking about.

  • I wonder if the women who said no were put to sleep during the births of thier children or was it natural childbirth? Would either way make them feel more vulnerable? Is that why they said no? Or were the women married to men who do or do not treat them as equals? Very interesting!!

  • I was in so much pain. My MIL was laughing at me. It was heart breaking when your husband was not supportive. She was gossiping about while I was in labor. Worse person I had met in my life. Year after we separate. Even she try to take my daughter away from me. Well its been 11 years ago but I can never forget what she make me go through.

  • My son will be 10 in July, but he has special needs. I would find it a huge comfort for him to be there, but I’m not too sure if he would be up for it.

  • Wishing every woman in the world that is giving birth during this terrible Coronavirus Pandemic the absolute best in both the hospital and taking baby home safe. It is truly a sad and scary time right now. Blessings from a Chilean woman who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada ��������������. Stay Safe Everyone ��

  • So when my Husband and I were dating 5 years ago, she told me that she has seen all her grandchildren born. Thats great. She has asked many times if I get pregnant can she attend the birth. I told her I would decide when I am pregnant. After being in this family for several years, I have decided my mil can’t be in the room. I want whoever is in there to be a support to me. She isn’t. I think she would just be running her mouth and distracting my Husband. She likes to complain and I want him completely focused on me and coaching me through labor. So I have decided we will call them after the baby is born, not when i go into labor. Then there won’t be any hurt feelings when they arrive and I don’t let her see the birth. She may be upset, but I believe the woman should choose who to have with her.
