    Well he does not nor do i think he should.

    Dont get me wrong, i see why and how this could be emotional and i understand how it can be perceived as mean or sad but the bottom line is its the women going through a medical issue. She gets to control the room and her privacy, if she doesnt want somebody in the room, even the father thats her right.
    I think he has the right to see the baby as soon as it is born.As far as I know humans are not like geese,so the father can wait until the baby is completely out of the mother's womb before seeing the baby..
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Really? Did he suffer morning sickness? Miss his college classes due to sickness? Miss out on a promotion at work because of sickness or exhaustion? Did he get gestational diabetes? Hemmeroids the size of grapes? High blood pressure? Did he pay ANY of her medical bills?

    Maybe you shoved her engagement ring up there...after you stole it when you broke off the engagement. Sell that nasty thing for some real cashola!

So let's not pretend that in the world of procreation that women are the victims because men are about to become the masters of the universe. It's not even remotely close to being true by a light year.
    Hey, if men are so weak they look at it that way and it affects their self-esteem...boo hoo.

    Men controlled women for millenia. Through biology: strength and a woman's vulnerability during pregnancy and raising children.

    So boo hoo hoo when biology works in our favor after actual civilization and technology step in.

    1.) I basically agree as soon as she allows him to come in he can or as soon as the baby can be deemed healthy and moved to another room if hers isnt ready yet then of course
    2.) exactly there will be no impact

    Get It!
    Not only that, there is insane pain and the very real possibility of death. Not only that, but it *feels* like you're dying....that fear is very real.

    Who needs an asshole ex there for that (even if it's just the way she perceives it)?

    Oh he's getting the kid...at least 50%. Just not the birth viewing rights.

    I wasn't trying to offend you at all. I was only referring to the act of childbirth itself, which frankly the mother does on her own, with requested support of a spouse/SO/family member or without, which is her choice. Raising children after they're born is entirely different, as I have already indicated.

    I believe parents should share child-rearing equally. It doesn't always work out that way, unfortunately, but again, all this takes place after the birth.

    If I was having an appendicitis attack and Hitler was 5 feet away, I'd never notice him.
    If you had appendicitis attack, you would not be forced to stay awake and push it out of any orifice.

    Hitler would not be visible to you because you would be unconscious.

    Statistics please?
    Increased stress increased hypertension, delayed delivery....look up strokes and perinatal hypertension and you can see what happens.

    There would be no stats. Because most men know better than to stress out the mother of the child she is trying to deliver. Most men.

    Seriously, this is not rocket science.
