    Objective: Describe the experiences of family members in the labor room. Materials and Methods: This is a qualitative ethnographic study in which ten participants and four focus groups were interviewed; Saturation was achieved when the researchers found no further explanation, interpretation or description of the experience. Spradley’s method was used for the analysis. Categories and domains were constructed and a taxonomic analysis was done. Field notes and participant observation were developed. Atlas ti software was used. Results: Family members want and feel they need timely and efficient information. Verbal and non-verbal language and the content of the information provided can cause them anxiety and uncertainty. Family members want to accompany and support the expectant mother during labor prior to childbirth. The atmosphere in the labor room depends on the internal factors of the family member and the external factors of the room. Education in the waiting room proved to be an excellent opportunity to take advantage of the time. Several domains emerged; namely, therapeutic communication, accompaniment, environment and education. Conclusion: The cultural significance of waiting for birth to occur is a highly meaningful event in life and is marked by four factors: communication, accompaniment, the environment in the room and education. These are situations that changed the birth experience.
