My sweet mom lives several states away from us and she is very excited about being a Nana soon.

She has told me several times that she plans on coming down several days prior to my due date and then staying "several" weeks afterwards. OH MY GOSH- THIS GIVES ME ANXIETY!

I love my sweet mom, but I think that once we bring the baby home, I will just want my DH and baby. It seems like such a personal time. I know she wants to help, but I don't think I can compromise on this one.

How can I tell her this kindly? What are your thoughts? Did anyone else have family stay with them afterwards? Was it more helpful then anything? Did you end up changing your mind? I'll attach a poll about bringing baby home.
