Did you allow your children at your birth?

I did not. I did not want them there. I didn't want to scare them. I worried it would scare them or something. And I feared they would be a distraction to me. My oldest was the only one to ask to be there at my last birth but I said no. I just was not ready for my impressionable 13 year old (at the time) to be there. Even now if I was to have another I do not know if I would let my girls be there. I just labor so much better with just hubby and I.
