And yes, the father on the whole is totally useless except for being there for support and in this situation he is not even there for support so there is no logical reason for him to bother her during her labor.
And people might be saying "we are pregnant" but they are not really though, she is the only one who has that baby in her belly, she is the one feeling the onslaught of hormones, it is her private parts that will be stretched when the child comes out. It might make a woman's life easier if she has a partner during her pregnancy but that doesn't even have to be a man. If she is lesbian a female partner will be just as effective because mostly that partner is there for support and not much else.
In an ideal world it would be best if this woman could have counted on her partner to be there during the pregnancy and during labor, but again, they are estranged and his presence in the delivery room would put undue pressure and distraction on this woman when she should be totally concentrating on giving birth.

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Haven't bothered to read the entire thread but legally I side with the judge. I think it's the right decision. As an observation if the mom decides to bar the dad from the delivery room I'm betting they have some serious relationship problems which probably doesn't bode well for the kid.
