What To Do With 15 Yr Old Labor Birth Night

Kris A. - November 21

Hi all, seeking some advice about my oldest daughter... she'll be 15 years next week. This is my 2nd marriage and her sisters (13 yr twins) are close to their dad, so will be at his house that night. My oldest, however, does not get along with ex's wife (the reason for our breakup) and so I cant have her there, and I dont want her home alone, I think it sends the wrong message to her about her place in the family. She is my first, and my pride and joy, and I dont want her to lose that sense of place and position in my heart. I dont want her to witness my labor though, I dont think it's appropriate - and unsure about when to have hubby (who is very loving towards her, and she loves him as well) go get her and bring her to hospital... and then what to do with her that night, I am leaning towards having them both stay the first night... is that ok, do you think? Hubby wants most of all that our new family bond together with no jealousy or resentment. Any suggestions?

Hey Kris, well i was in your daughters position when i was 14 and my mom gave birth to my little brother from her second marriage. i was there in the delivery and to tell you the truth it didn;t bother me at all, in middle school they had already showed us the video miracle of life and i had already seen a birth. but seeing my little brother come into this world was just so special. i recommend that you ask her if she would mind being there in the labor room? i thought that it was kind of weird but i knew where babies came from. and i aprecciated her more for being so open minded with me and let me in such a private but happy moment. just ask your daughter and see what she says. good luck.
