    He however does still say that DS2's birth was the scariest day of his life because he thought he was going to lose both of us

    Congratulations on your new baby

    I had an awful birth experience and if was also quite upsetting for DF. The midwives were extremely rude and unprofessional. We also had a student midwife who was constantly patronized and belittled by the midwife and was surprised by how the birth turned out. Even the hospital stay after DS was born was traumatic, the hospital failed in their care of me and as a result I was quite sick for the first few weeks of my sons life. All of this was hard for my DF to deal with as well. Speaking about it helped but time has been the biggest factor in helping us get over the experience.

    Has he got friends who have kids that he can talk to? Or even reading other birth experiences online from a makes perspective could help?

    @Curby your experience sounds so reassurring

    DH has few friends here in Sydney but more in Canberra who have had kids. At least talking with family the last few days has seemed to really help!

    Just a quick update:

    DH is feeling much better now after the first week.

    We raised his concerns with the midwife at one of our home visits and they appreciate the feedback!

    DH doesn't want to do a letter and happy to leave as is.

    Thanks to everyone for your advice and reassurance...it really helped. I think it was partly also a case of me feeling anxious for DH and now I see he's ok!

    There is a great facebook page for dads only and they are pretty great with advice or just a place to vent for dads of all experience. Its called Becoming Dad - Dads Only, am I allowed to put the link here? Might be worth referring your other half's to the group
