Re: Have you ever attended the birth of a child, not your own?

Never been at a birth myself, and it was just me and dh at the birth of my ds (well, and the midwife and labor nurse).

I was thinking with the next one (we will be homebirthing the next) that I might like to invite my mom and SIL, but then I don't like to be touched or talked to or messed with in any way at all when I am in labor (not even by dh), so I am not sure what they would *do*.

I'm worried that if they ended up being just spectators I'd feel self conscious (although I am really not very in general).
