After reading another thread about the father going home for a nap and missing the birth, it has gotten me thinking about my upcoming c-section in 7 weeks that my DH may or may not be at. He is defence so may be on a course, we just don't know and have been told to possibly expect being told one day and then he is gone the next. I completely support my DH and have told him I don't want him to knock back courses, as he really needs them, they are only 2-3weeks that he will be interstate for. I have friends on call to look after dd and my mum is coming up a week before c-sect. I support my husband in being away, so please no negativity unless its from personal experience with your partner missing birth of your child.
So my question is, have their been any issues for those who's DH were not at birth due to work restrictions or early birth etc. my dad wasn't at mine as I came 2 weeks early and didn't have any issues with him a child.
