Hi hun, i think at most hospitals you are allowed two people in the delivery room with you while you are giving birth. Im more than sure you can have both your partner and your mum too

I had my husband, my mil and my dad through labour on a ward for the first 8 hours ( i was induced). Then when i had my waters broken at 2cm i went into my own delivery room and my hubby stayed with me until i had to push and then he left ( he didn't want to be there for that bit) and my mil and dad came back in through the pushing and birth. After she was born they let my husband back in the room so all 3 of them were there which was nice because i didn't want any of them to have to leave me. lol!
I was very lucky to beable to have them all there near enough all the time. My step mum even popped in at one stage but my dad went out so she could come in and see me.
I think it depends on the hospital and also how busy they are, the day i had my daughter there wasn't anyone else being induced on the delivery ward just me and some pregnant ladies kept popping in as they had complications with their pregnancy but that was it.
