What is weird about it all is that you somehow think telling the kid when he's 5 "Your mommy didn't want your daddy present when you were born" - will somehow look better than "Your mom and dad were both present when you were born". This was a self-serving act on the part of the mother. Nothing more.
    Who would tell their children when they are 5 anything like that to begin with? My husband wasn't present for our second son's birth but was for the first son's. Does that make him a bad father? Anyone who brought up something like that with such a young child is being a childish parent, no matter if they are mother or father.

    The act was selfserving of the father to expect to try to get a court to grant him permission to the mother's room when he knows that they are not on the best of terms (and it would certainly not make the terms better taking her to court over this). Him being there, in the room, for the birth of his child is for him, not the child. It should be for the mother, but with the status of the relationship, that is unlikely to be the case for this particular couple. The child won't remember and there is nothing shameful about a father waiting outside the delivery room.

    What a load. How about the misandry of the thread? The woman is denying the father of the child a supposedly important moment in a selfish move.

    Women are immune to criticism in today's world. The guy can get dumped on for the nerve of wanting to be there for the birth of his child, but the mother can do and act any way she wants.

    Women will never be equal. They can't handle being judged on their own merits. Remarks like yours support a return to the days where women are seen and not heard.

You can rant and rave all you want, but it won't solve the problem. And there is little the courts or any of us can do for many of them because frankly there is no way to really know who is the best parent to raise the child in most cases. Court employees aren't prescient or all knowing or mindreaders. They simply can't know which parent is best. And what are they supposed to do when both parents work jobs or one works a job and the other doesn't because the other parent was the caregiver for the children up til the divorce? What are they supposed to do if one parent (usually the father) has a job that has them working very long hours? Should they take into account who left whom? What about if one of them already has found someone else (whether they were married or not) when custody is considered? Other children of both from other people? There are simply so many things and unfortunately most people are going to say that children need their mothers more than their fathers. Sure, it would be nice to have more research done by family courts to see this, but that would also take time where the child(ren) still have to spend time with their parents and living their lives.

    Plus, believe it or not, some fathers don't want their children either. My own father only wanted to try for joint custody to avoid paying child support for four children when he divorced my mother. After he was contested on his request, he went almost completely opposite and asked for so little visitation that it was truly pathetic.
    Give me five minutes and I could tell you who would be the better parent in practically every case.

    Good lord, how in the hell do you know it was a vengeful spite. Seriously.

    And if it was a "****ty breakup" - more the reason he should not be there to stress her out. Billions of dads have not seen their kids being born.

    And frankly if a parent said to their young kid "mommy wouldn't let me watch you being born" - that is highly manipulative and that person should get help immediately.

    I have seen mothers and fathers play this game and it is flipping sick and twisted.

    Seriously, you act like a woman in the throws of labor and delivery has an ability to suck it up and get a grip over her ex being there.

    I guarantee you couldn't, even in most cases. You would be basing your judgement on split second observations with very little real information. And there are plenty of parents out there who are both good parents but simply can't get along.

    The guy was not allowed in the delivery room. It's the right of the woman to choose who she wants to support her during labor and delivery, and who she doesn't want there. He was so obsessed with forcing himself into that room, that he actually sued her while she was in labor, a truly dick move proving that her well-being, and by rote the well-being of the baby she was giving birth to, was of lesser concern to him than forcing his will upon her.

    These people do NOT like each other. Giving birth is traumatic enough without having someone you despise in the same room while you are expelling the equivalent of a 10-lb watermelon, screaming unladylike things such as "get it OOOOOUUUUUT!"... which would probably be brought up in their next court date (and there WILL be a "next court date") to prove that she didn't want the baby in the first place, therefore he should be given custody.

    The woman has repeatedly stated that he will never be denied access to the child, and in fact he saw the child immediately after it was born. All the rest of this "she's such a selfish bitch" crap is nothing but pure hatefulness by people who have never actually endured childbirth, let alone endured it with a person who despises her in the room. Only supportive people should be allowed, and are allowed, in the delivery room, and only with the mother's permission.

    Women will never be equal. They can't handle being judged on their own merits. Remarks like yours support a return to the days where women are seen and not heard.
    Ah, I see. So because I have dared to speak out... apparently above my station in life, being a mere woman and all... that should be a rallying cry to strip women of all right to speak without permission and to hold independent opinions. I'll keep that in mind.

    Was she ordered by the court to do so, or was fine with it?

    According to the article, she was not ordered by the court to do anything. She had always told him that she would not deny him access to the child.
