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��
