my midwife said it was because it is harder to see if theres a cord around baby neck or somethings wrong. she said they would prefer to see whats going on just like some wont let you birth in any position because they cant see. she said its really just to cover there bum so they dont get in trouble if somthing goes wrong. my midwife swears by water births.
