Will You Be In the Labor Room With Your Wife?

Will you be there?

When your wife is going through the pains of labour to deliver your baby, will you be in the labour room holding her hand? Or you can’t bear to see her in pains? Well, as a doctor I should be there but I can’t bear to see someone I love so much going through such pains, so I’ll go and stay in a place where I can’t even hear her shouting. The young women here can also contribute by saying if they will like their husbands to be there or not and if we have people who are married here(I doubt it), you can share your experiences too, whether you were there or not or whether he was there for you or not. Thank you.

[/color]"It's good if one's hubby is there,in order for them to appreciate the woman when they eventually see what we go thru and not turn us into punching bags at home". This was quoted by the chief of matron of the general hospital where I had my first baby. My hubby was there when we had our first baby and he was helpful from the beginning to the end of my labor. He appreciated me more, knowing it wasn't easy with all the pains.[color=#770077]

My husband was there during the birth of both our children. We actually became even closer with the birth of our first child. Even though he couldn't handle seeing me in pain, he wanted to be there with me and at least experience a little bit of it. We laughed through the low times (no contractions) and screamed together during contraction. I heard some women actually cuss at their husbands during this time, but our's was nothing but encouragement (from him) and eagerness to see our son who is now 4 years old.

When I talk about it now, he can talk about it too because he was there. He even took some pics which we only share with each other. If I were a man though, I don't think I would be able to stand it. Especially knowing that I cannot help the person in pain.

I wanted my husband to be present during the birth of my 3rd baby but the nurse refused. But with God by my side, I scaled through and will continue to scale through in Jesus name, Amen

i will really be pleased to see him there, so that we can go through it together. i will like to scream in pain looking at his eyes, seeing him feeling sorry for me and appriciating me more for my courage and ofcourse appriciating him mom more.

We feel even closer to each other after the experience.

But if it will be real stressful for him, then he is excused cause i dont want him being traumatized for life cause i dont want him going off sex - cause i like ma thing too much.

Went in there while she was in labour for the second kid - 12 years ago. Couldn't stand her pains.

Ran as fast as my legs could carry me out of the theatre. That made up my mind. No more kids. Been grateful

to God for keeping her during that period and to her for bearing that pain for both of us.

Have a great respect for ladies - especially mothers - ever since. They are a strong lot. Men who maltreat women

either have not 'experienced' what they go thru or a loonie or both.

3 gbosas to our women,

I wish i could have been there when my kids were born, but the hospital didn't allow it. So i had to stay outside the delivery ward with all the other wimps.

I guess they had a high rate of fathers fainting in the ward.

If i am to say, i would like my husband to be there with me during labour, and it must be only when i am the only woman in labour at a particular time because it is not wise for him to come in when there are other women in the labour room together with me. Now why i would like him to be by my side is this, His presence and his consolation with me in the labour room will help me alot to deliver very fast. It will also make him to build more luv for me and he will no longer take me for granted if he does before. So for these reasons i would want him in there with me. but i know my husband will not accept that, he will say MUM for what nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww but he must have to do that for me.

As usual, I was there with her again on the 11th of June, 2006, when she was about to put to bed. Exactly 7.40am, a baby girl, named Ayomide was added to our family

Ladies and women here and elsewhere, I bow for una o. It's not always easy on that day. Prayerfully, God will keep on granting you all safe delivery

My husband was there the two times and believe me I glad he was. He was an encourager and was there all the way, whenever I confessed negatively , he was contradicting everything, holding legs, rubbing my back etc. In fact if anyone asks him, he wouldn't have missed it for anything. He was strong througout . I couldn't have asked for any other person.

deven though your friend married his wife a virgine,was she still a virgin after marriage and before child birth,I beg that is not enough excuse to be there when one's wife is about to put to birth.I will be there when my wife will be putting to birth and that will happen soon.

their [/b]children are being born. Of course, comforting your wife is important, but it's about more than that. It's about being there at the most important and magical moment in your children's life. The joy you feel when your child is born and give it's first bath cannot be compared to anything else.

to satisfy his wife

Obviously, it's better than not being there, but it should [b]also [/b]be about your child. You can be madly in love with your wife, but this bond doesn't even come close to the one you have with your child.

Some girls would insist on seeing their man, if that's who my wife is, then I'll be there to satisfy her.

I might be in another state. No where near the delivery room, because i am not sure i can survive that experience. But i am not yet sure if i want kids, but if i have kids i will have my woman,baby mama, or wife sign a disclaimer that i do not have to be there. I am not a fan of blood....

Adoption is an Option

I'd be there. I'd probably even get it on tape. For the records. The day the son or daughter disrespects his mother, I'd sit him down and play it for him. It would definately get sense into his head.
