Most hospitals will allow you to go into the operating room with your partner, or if you feel unable to, they may be accompanied by another person (some hospitals will allow two if one is the doula). Hospitals utilize Family Centered Cesareans, which means involved the family as much as possible. They will encourage you to participate in the birth, both cesarean and vaginal birth. For hospitals that do not support Family Centered Cesareans, you should meet with them to discuss the level of involvement you will be supported in.
