How many people were in the room when you gave birth?

I'm talking on facebook right now...with someone whose friend or mom or something is giving her a hard time about not wanting extra people in the room while she's giving birth. 

Um, I didn't even really want my husband in there. He was, but he stayed at the top of the bed with me, so he didn't pass out...lol.

for my first birth there was my dh and 2 midwives. my second birth was in a hospital filled with at least 6 people that i didn't know.

the next birth was twins, so there were 4 midwives, our babysitter, dh and our 2 sons.

the next birth was 2 midwives, dh, my mom and our 4 kids. the kids came and went, but mostly stayed away...or slept!

My husband and my mom were the ones I wanted there, so they were. My little sister (14 at the time) wanted to be there, so I let her too. Then a nurse and the midwife was in and out.

I didn't want anyone else and even asked that no unneccesary medical staff come in either.

Both times just hospital personnel and dh. First time I might as well have let my MIL and grandmother in since they were at the door ears pressed tightly listening to the whole frickin time. The 2nd time no one except dh was even allowed to set foot in the hospital until the day after.
