The man is about 100 years old, his opinion is out of date on this one
I'd look down on a man if he didn't attend the birth of his children. I don't particularly want to push a watermelon out of my who-har but you know, don't really get a choice.
But...I need someone to yell/scream at! 'If you even think of coming near me again with that thing you've got another thing coming' just wouldn't sound right directed at the midwife.
But...I get how in SOME situations/relationships it may be best for the man to be waiting outside.
Both my labours were quick so I can't say having dp there slowed it down at all.
I kinda agree .. Some men shouldn't be present for it ..
Mmmmm.....I agree for some ppl it might be best ...I admit (and I've never admitted this as i felt there was something wrong with me) but I kinda wasn't looking forward to my dh being there with me....personally I knew I would have been ok without him....altho wouldn't want to deny him the experience either...but hard for me to say as I ended up with a c sect ....tbh I felt kinda weird with the idea of him seeing me pushing etc....but that's me..each to their own
I think it's up to the woman birthing who will be at her birth.... I do agree that some Men hinder the process though
