Could This Be Another Way To Seek For Family Planning?

A friend was forced by the wife to witness the whole episode of her child delivery, right from the period of labor.

So Men, how would you feel if your wife wants you present as she delivers her child?

and ladies , would you rather want your husband to witness the whole episode of child birth and what could prompt you do that?

Of what use is it for your husbands to be there?? Does it make the experience less painful or what?? You ladies are just looking for a way to get back at your husbands for what I dont know.

Its not like we make you follow us to work to hustle the money.

This topic has been trashed before on Nairaland and my answer remains the same; "Its a matter of choice". Why would I want to be there and see a doctor poking at my wifes koko??

At the same time, it would be nice to share that special moment with her, if not to support her morally as I know that the experience can be not only painful but traumatic especially were complications arise.

Women will always say they want there, not out of love, but just to traumatise their husbands. And women tend to believe that if their husbands witness the birth of their child and see the pians they go through, then they would be better appreciated. I say its rubbish!! Our gran-nanas and great grand-nanas before them didnt make their husbands witness theirs so why should the rules change now??

There is intense pressure in western society for a husband to be present at a birth. This often put a strain on the mother. Some men are just a pain in the bum and should be left in the waiting room until it is all over. My cousin had her first baby and her husband was so demanding. He had been reading modern books and said no pain killers, no this, no that, all natural then when he saw how much pain his wife was in he started demanding painkillers but by then it was too late. He was anxious and troublesome to the nurses and doctor. Then when babies head started to come out he fainted.

If you don't want to be there then wait outside. But for the real men who wish to witness the miracle of seeing their beloved baby arrive it is a wonderful thing. My husband (True Igbo man ) Stated "I don't do blood. I wont be there if or when a baby is born." Before we even married. I accepted it and over the years have seen the wisdom of his words.

In final answer.

Each couple should make their own decisions. A wife must know her husband and accept his needs too. In a delivery room a mother and sister are much more helpful anyway.

So, that'd be your reason? not fair atall.

was he there at his own accord or was asked, finally was he inside the ward with you as you deliver?

Even the man that passed on, out of high BP, on seeing what the wife was passing through nko? whilst the wife and the baby finally made it

Yes, I want him present to when I deliver OUR child. He helped me make it, so he can be there when I deliver it.
