Some of my friends were there in the delivery room when his wife is giving birth to their baby. But some other decided to wait outside because blood makes them really sick. What about you, did your husband support you in the delivery room?? How did his presence affect you during the delivery process???

I will have a baby next year. I have determined to wait my wife in the delivery room. I will give her my fully support, she needs me. I also will to take my digital camer to record the milestone. This is a very very important case of my life. BTW, My colleague told me that if you want to stay in the delivery room to watch the childbearing that you must pay $100 for it at least.

It's good that you have decided to support your wife at the delivery room. I didn't know that a husband must pay for staying at the delivery room, something isn't right at all. I think it's your absolute right as a husband to be next to your wife during the delivery process for free!

Icainiao, Digital cameras may workout only if the delivery is a smooth one. If it is a scary one like mine, probably you may end up taking the snap shots of your baby alone after it comes out.

triplets in a basket - triplets in a basket, babies in a round basket, three babies in a basket
I had to have a c-section due to being a high risk pregnancy (triplets), and yes my husband was there with me as well as about 40 different nurses, doctors etc. It was a packed house..hehe he held my hand, brushed my hair and as soon as the first baby was out I sent him to the babies. They needed him more than I did, or so I thought. They were born at 31 weeks, so early and so tiny but they did great. Me on the other hand. I lost so much blood and they almost lost me.. Thank God for those that donate blood. I was able to get a transfusion and they were able to get me back to where I needed to be, it was rough for a while and I spent the night on the OR table, that is right they were so worried about me needing to be cut back open due to bleeding that they left me over night on the OR table, I was transferred to ICU the next morning and got to see my babies when they were three days old.

Thank you so much for your kind words. A lot of people wish they could have multiples but it is so much work. I do not recommend it, have your babies one at a time. That is how it was meant to be.

yes, when i had my first child, he was with me inside the delivery room... i gave birth in a lying clinic and there were only two workers at that time, the doctor and the midwife assisting her. i was at the delivery room, and then another mom came who's about to gave birth also, and the doctor went to that woman and called my husband, left me with him. the doc said to sit in her place and watch, see if the baby will come out... that was really scary and funny at the same time, now that i think of it. and then when it was just the two of us at the delivery room my husband said, oh i think i can see the head... but it took really a long time before my daughter came out... the other woman in the delivery had already given birth to her child before me and the doctor came back to me and was able to administer to my giving birth, my husband was then told to look for the other woman that gave birth because he husband was not there... lol... the situation was really funny now...t here was lack of workers that time... good thing my husband was willing to do all the doctor told him... without getting paid... hahaha his presence had given me courage at the delivery room, that i can make it, and that everything would be ok.

Wow, that is great. Your husband must be very brave. I don't know if my husband would ever do the same. When I asked him to support me in the delivery room someday, he said sure as long as there is another empty bed for him to collapse on...LOL :)

I haven't had this experience yet as I am currently pregnant with my first child. My husband is planning to be in the delivery room with me and I think he'll be fine (no passing out or anything.) He does get really concerned when he sees me in pain though and I'm wondering how he'll react to that. Hopefully he'll take it like a champ and everything will go great. I'll keep you posted.

I had a csection and hubby was there with me. I felt it very important for him to be there. My mom was there also. He looked over and wish he didnt. I was proud of him b/c he didn't pass out. You don't have to see anything you don't want to. Its nice to be there for your wife and to experience being able to see the baby as soon as he/she is born. Its a bonding moment.

My husband never supported me in the delivery. I am glad my mom was there for me. She was there through all my kids but one and that was because she was never told I was in labor either. And even then I had to give birth on my own without anyone in the room. And it wasn't because any of the blood made him sick or anything. He was just a rude man.

Yes, he was with me when i was giving birth. He had a big smile on his face because he was so happy that they let him in. It was one of those moments in life where it was good you have shared it with him. I was happy that I had someone there for me not to feel alone.

I've been married twice and both times, my husband showed up. My first husband vomit after seeing the afterbirth. My second husband was nonchalant. I was looking for a little more excitement the second time around. Maybe with this last pregnancy I will get some type of arousal from hubby! :)

I had a c section for both, and my husband looked like he was petrified.

hi natalia, Got to have my two caesaria deliveries, but my husband had no chance to stay with me at the operating room. He is very supportive same thing with my whole family.

I am a single mom... so I don't have a husband during my delivery. However, I am very lucky to have avery supportive mother and sister, who was there the whole time. In fact, my sister was in tears when I gave birth. I am not sure if it's her tears of joy, or if she was just too nervous in watching me give birth. Nevertheless, I still have the best delivery experience, because I shared it with people who celebrated my entry to the motherhood with me.
