Re: How many people attended your birth? How do I say no?

Throughout my pregnancy I was somewhat uncomfortable with how public pregnancy makes your private life. Everyone wants to know everything. I even had a male co-worker give me pump advice (ahh don't say breast to me at work!). I was probably more private than most.
Looking back now though, I am glad I got to spend those last few hours alone with my husband before becoming a family of three. They were our last moments where "we" just meant the two of us and I really cherish them. If you have the birth with just the people you want there, you'll cherish it too. Speak up about your wishes. I don't think you'll regret it regardless of who you may offend!
