Asked in Family Law and Juvenile Law for Kentucky

Q: Do i have to have my mother with me?

I am a pregnant 15 yo and will still be 15 when I give birth, my mom said that I have to have her in there because of my age and that my doctors don't know what they're talking about, my doctors say that technically I am emancipated in the medical part of life because of my pregnancy. I don't want my mom to be there because of things she has said to me throughout the pregnancy and want the baby's father there, so I guess what I'm asking is if my mother absolutely has to be there with me through my labor, delivery, and postpartum stay in the hospital.
