SAHM with no helper/ relative during labour and need to care for the elder child.

Hi, I’m currently pregnant with no 2, due soon. With covid restrictions, we are unable to bring our in law or any nanny to stay( living in one room unit). Basically it’s only hubby, me and my child. Just wondering is there any ad hoc babysitter to hire just to tag alone with my elder in hsptl during my labour? Is it even possible? What if my labour start at mid nite?. Or the only option is to deliver baby without husband. As I need him to be with my no1. She’s 4 btw. Any suggestion?

I am sailing on the same boat .. will be going to deliver in couple of weeks .. we don’t have any other option without our partner still we can go to labour , as here the hospitals r best we don’t need any extra family members hand . But since we need our partner beside us atleast till deliver .. u May can keep ur older one in ur frnds house just for couple of hours .. as I am doing the same . We don’t have any other option

Wishing you a smooth delivery mummy. Thanks for the reply. 😊

arrange for caretaking within the hospital? Maybe can check with them. Even though i personally don’t know if they have such arrangements. But I would ask just to see if there’s a chance that’s smth they offer
