i agree completely. in my mw homebirth, my second child, having an audience made it very hard. i felt i had to draw inward and i wasnt comfortable in my own home. i was self conscious, afraid, and annoyed.
my next birth was my first UC and it was incredible. i didnt even want dh in the room. he came by occasionally to ask me if i wanted anything and i managed to call him in just before the baby was born.
i dont need anyone around me, it isnt helpful at all.
