Awesome. Thanks for your replies ladies. I think if he can get the time off work ill encourage him to come. I just wasn't sure what the done thing was. I'm fairly independent, but I'm also a nurse and its my first time being in a hospital system as a pt since I was a child, so I'm a bit anxious about it all. Maybe I'll be less anxious with him there.

I'd actually call the hospital and ask what they prefer. My DH only came to one appointment with DD, the one where we discussed birthing preferences (this was private OB). With this bub, he luckily has the day off when my first midwife appointment is and they like both of us to be there for the first appointment apparently.

My husband came to every single OB & hospital appointment, throughout all pregnancies....even when I was down to fortnightly & weekly visits
If he wants to go let him - it's not up to the hospital, it's your choice if you both want to be there!

I went to my booking in appointment alone. DF was working I think. But I don't think he would have been that interested. It was just lots of paperwork and boring stuff.

DP only missed one appointment for all three pregnancies. I think he was more excited than I was, and really enjoyed hearing the heartbeat etc. He was never asked to leave. This was through our public hospital. I'd take him if he can make it!

DP was also there for my booking in appointment- he wanted to be involved and I was anxious too and appreciated the support

Take him, my partner came as he too wanted to be involved. Different hospital.. But he was never asked to leave the room! It was a pretty boring appointment but at the same time gave as an idea of what was ahead!

Bugger what the hospital wants. If you want to take your partner, take him! You also don't have to have him leave the room if you are comfortable with him being there.
The women's don't do a tour on your first visit, that is offered later as part of the education classes.
