Your question caught my eye and I couldn't help to respond even though I am not in your DDC.
You are ABSOLUTELY not being selfish. You are a mama who is getting ready to birth. A watched pot won't boil. Neither will a mother who is stressed by people in her home give birth/go into labour. As a doula I watched this play out with clients... any time a nurse would enter the room, the client's ctx would almost all together stop. When we were alone (her DH and I) with her, she was rocking in a good labour pattern. This happened at my own birth when the MW's assistants whom I hadn't met showed up.
You deserve to keep the sanctity of your home SAFE in this time leading up to your birth. Wishing you gentle birthing vibes.
