I have a bit of an issue where I am deathly afraid of giving birth again. I don't want to go through it, let alone make DP witness it. I think society pressures men and women into having partners there, even if they don't really want to - sometimes that is the father, sometimes the mother.
DP has told me that he would be really traumatised if he had to watch me have a caesarian, why should I put him through watching me have major surgery? I wouldn't be able to be in the room in which he is having surgery.
He insists he has to be with me during a VB, he says he couldn't make me go through it on my own. I wonder whether this is because in today's society it is considered 'wrong' for the father to not be in the room?
I don't want to poo in front of him.
