Meredith, this is YOUR birth, not theirs. Some people are comfortable with a lot of people around, and others are not. You need to do what feels right for you and your baby. No one should be insisting anything. This birth is not about them at all.

Meredith, I personally chose to have my husband, my doula and the midwives at my home birth. I told everyone else that I loved them but that I would call them all when the baby was born and they could come over then. I definitely did not want an audience and I also didn't want my husband having to tell people to get out b/c they were distracting to me.

Hi Meredith...I was told that every additional person you have at your birth slows it down! I'm not sure if this is true but may be worth considering. I was planning to have a group of my closest friends at my birth but it didn't work out. Its good to be able to tune in to you and your baby and not have to worry about other people being's all good if they keep quiet and assist but if everyone wants to chat, coach or offer constant advice I'd keep them away!! just my humble opinion anyway :-)

Ok ladies, Here is a question for you. Who do you feel should be present at your birth? I have a lot of relatives and friends who want to be there but I don't know how I feel about an audience. There are also some people who are insistent on being there that I do not want there at all (I don't feel safe).

Going to see our midwife today and can not believe I'll be 20 weeks tomorrow. Definitely need to get on the ball and get our birthing tub. :)
