Re: Kids at birth?

My oldest was 2y9m when my youngest was born, he was there for all of it and popped in and out of the room during my labor, but was right there in the thick of it for the birth, about a foot away, and he loved it. He is 6 now and youngest is 3.5 and they will be there for this baby. I actually really want my youngest there - he is my quiet, calm, intuitive one and one of my calming forces. I think it is important for children to see and experience normal birth! That said, screaming hyenas would probably scare kids into never procreating, so if I were that kind of birthing woman I would probably keep them far, far away lest I never get the joy of being a grandmother
