What kind of birth tub will you be using? Most tubs provide quite a bit of privacy, to the point that midwives need a flashlight to see what's going on with your bottom. Also, upright positions are very common in the pools, which makes for more privacy also. I am a very modest person (yes, EVEN IN LATE LABOR, Dr. Bradley), and I labored in a maternity tankini top. For most of my labor, I faced the wall of the birth center, with my back to everyone in the room. Only when I was complete did I turn around toward the people in the room (and even then, that was only DH, my best friend from high school, and my two midwives). So yeah, I understand wanting privacy, but I think it can be achieved w/o a special "suit."
