Re: Do you have someone stay with you after the birth?

My DD was born the day before Thanksgiving, and I had my Dad, brother and SM visiting us at the time. Side note, Thanksgiving was at my house that year, but I didn't do any of the work, just came home from the hospital in time for dinner. SM and my sister helped out a lot, and everyone was great. And, their presence kept MIL out of my hair, so I'd do it again in a heartbeat. If you get along with the person that is helping out, and they will help and not be more work or totally useless, then go for it.
Today there is no black or white, only shades of gray.
