Pregnant Woman Refuses to Let Her Mother-in-Law in the Delivery Room. Is She Being Unreasonable?

When I learn that someone who isn’t the baby’s mom or dad wants to be in the delivery room, it always strikes me as very odd. Why would you want to be in that room, precisely? In a delivery room a wife would always prefer her husband, then her mom to be around. But in this story a lady asked whether she was right or wrong when her husband informed her his mother would be there too in the delivery room. Read the story and let us know what she should do.

Okay, so this is an issue that I can’t deal with

I(28)am six months pregnant. Me and my husband have been discussing who can be in the delivery room.

I told him my mother was going to go obviously and he said he would want his mother to be there. I would be fine with that but the hospital will only let 2 people in.

I told him if she went he wouldn’t be able to go. He said he was expecting me to get rid of my mother and let him go but I told him that wasn’t happening.

We’re now in an argument and he said he is going to go to his friend’s house. It’s been 2 days and he still hasn’t returned. He isn’t answering my calls either. Now I don’t know where he is. I need some advice on if I’m wrong.
