How Do you Tell your friends that you don't want them in the delivery room?
I am expecting a baby boy in July, along with the basic concerns such as medication, pain, complications I am feeling some anxiety about who will be in the room with me. I would prefer to just have my Husband and Mom the entire time, however, I have a friend who keeps asking "who do you want in the room with you..?" I keep changing the subject as to not hurt her feelings because when her sister had her son she was very angery that she wasn't allowed in the room during delivery, and made her sister feel terrible the whole time afterwards.
We have been friends for a long time, but she is very tempermental and demanding of my attention. I want her to feel involved but I don't need the stress of her being in the room with me.
How do I break the news to her?
