He sounds like an a grade douche, but I don't think men shouldn't have an opinion on child birth. I call bull on the 'you cant comment unless you've experienced it' line. None of us have experienced anyone else's labour- just our own. So IMO a male midwife know far more about what it's 'like' to be in labour than I do. He sees it every day, even if I experienced labour twice I've never been present while another woman births.
The author is a big knobhead though- 'I delivered two babies' no you didn't buddy that was your missus!

I agree, it isn't because he is a man it's because he's clueless.

I'm a midwife who has never given birth
I know the mechanics, I know how to support, I know the risks, complications, benefits, pros cons etc
I know, in THEORY, what it's like to give birth
And absolutely, I know more than a lot of mothers
But having never experienced it, I could never (and would never) make a statement about what it feels like to be in labour
(Even once I have, I wouldn't, because no two labours are the same :P that's off topic though :P )
