Well I was not loaded up on drugs at my home, but during my homebirth 18 months ago, I needed help *delivering* my baby from my Midwife.
Baby was a shoulder dystocia and the head was out for 4 minutes and the anterior shoulder was stuck on my pubic bone. I was glad to have someone to *help me* deliver my own baby.
When I teach childbirth classes, I play the same semantics game, but ask them during introductions, " who will deliver your baby"? the correct answer being of course, YOU will!
