Hi everyone! I'm putting together a quick article on things you SHOULDN'T say to a woman who is in labour ... and things you shouldn't do. I will also put in a few tips on what you SHOULD say and do. So, I'm thinking things like: "This is taking aaaages" "I'm bored ..." "Shhhh..." But I'd love some more examples if you've got them ... Thanks in advance!

Did your DP say something annoying while you were in labour?

Not so much what he said but more the fact he was very concerned about HIM not having enough food in the fridge in the birth suite so had to go down and get more food from the canteen. That even annoyed my midwife too.

With jasper he was watching the monitor and said "look look your having a contraction" and pointed at the monitor....
With katelyn on the way out the door to hospital asked if he had time for a shower and then asked me what was for dinner. He also kept asking me what was wrong every time I grunted or groaned and would keep asking until the contraction finished and I'd be like "what do you think?!" lol. He was just concerned because I was obviously in a lot of pain but I couldn't speak so asking me was annoying.

It was something along the lines of: "It's labour. It wouldn't be called labour if it was easy"

It wasn't so much during my labour but just afterwards, he complained that his neck was "really really sore". He had been sitting in the bath behind me, propping me up and at just the right height his neck was against the hand rail. He told me how he was hoping *I* would change position so *he* could be more comfortable:what:
Thankfully for the sake of his life, he didn't mention anything whilst I was in the midst of popping out a watermelon!
He still carries on now about how sore his neck was when I remind him what I went through. Suppose I better remember to suss out where the hand rail is for next time
