"Everyone" says "check your dignity at the door" etc I found that a really confronting idea.
I know some women birth totally nude and that's totally fine for them but I birthed with a top on and the midwife helped me out of my undies when things started really going on. I had internal exams with both babies and after each internal I'd put my undies back on. I also wore a long skirt because I could just hitch it up I felt more comfortable. Though I birthed kneeling on the floor so I took it off because it got caught on my knees.
Also as soon as katelyn was born they helped lift my top off so I could put her skin to skin and I was totally nude for the next 2 hours and didn't notice I was too busy with my baby. But I was under blankets.
