Childbirth is the greatest miracle of life, a truly magical moment to both, the expecting parents and the newly-born baby. However, as beautiful as the experience is, it’s also very stressful for every party involved, from the mother to the medical professionals. That’s why it’s important to create the environment where everyone can feel the least stressed and as comfortable as possible. And at times, that is not an easy task to accomplish.

Quora user Isabella Laguna recently asked people a question that caused quite a stir. The woman was pregnant with twins and her husband demanded to let his own parents be present in the delivery room, however, Isabella was not comfortable with the idea and sought advice from other users. And people came to her rescue pretty quick! Scroll down below to read their answers and tell us what you think.

Loved the first response from Julie. When the husband gets naked in front of her parents and takes a dump and spreads his legs for 12 hours, then his parents can come in.

I would love to hear the husband's reasoning for wanting his parents in the room. Birthing a child is stressful enough without having additional spectators that sound like they wouldn't respect her privacy (picturing both in-laws staring at the child crowning, etc.). I hope she gets her way!

It's likely the parents want to be there at what is an exciting time, and are putting pressure on the husband and probably using the false equivalence of 'Well her mom is invited, we should have the same rights as her mother' or similar. False equivalence because if the mum-to-be has invited one or both of her parents it would be for her support and the husband's parents obviously are not suitable for support.

Maybe when it's his time to labor, he can invite his parents.

Or he could have invited them too when they conceived the child since he is not into privacy.
