It is totally your right to decide.

My first was premature and I have no idea how it happened but I ended up with a full audience. DH, my dad, and both my MIL and SFIL were in the room... FIL ended up standing behind the doctors, it was terrible. Not to mention extra staff because of the situation. After that I had nobody but DH with me, and the last few times we've had our baby at home with not even a midwife with us.

To me, insisting to let people watch the birth is along the same lines as insisting you let people watch the conception. It's just wrong.
