    Her right to privacy and freedom must be above his right to invade them.

    The health aspect of it is my major issue. Childbirth can be dangerous, and even life threatening.

    Adding the tension of an unwanted person to the room doesn't really accomplish anything but to make bad outcomes more likely.

    If the father of the child being there is such an intense experience that it adversely affects the woman's procedure, that kid should just hope to be birthed stillborn. He's going to have a crappy life with a crappier mother.

    If I was having an appendicitis attack and Hitler was 5 feet away, I'd never notice him.

    It's really not a "procedure" though. It's a natural process, that simply happens to have the potential to turn into quite a few rather nasty "procedures" if something goes wrong.

    As such, it is really in the best interests of the mother and baby alike that the woman be able to relax somewhat and concentrate so that she can be at the top of her game. Introducing persons that she might very well hate into the environment against her will isn't going to do anything to further that goal, and will actually detract from it.

    And he will get to see it and have the right and obligation to be involved in it's life, but that doesn't mean that he has the right to be in the delivery room. It is a medical procedure and the mother does have a right to privacy.

    It's nice to know that so many people here still believe in slavery.

    The baby isn't a person. It's a possession.

    It's not their baby. It's her baby.

    Re: Do you think fathers have a legal right to see thier child born or be in the room

    It should always be the mother's right to not have people she doesn't want (as long as they aren't needed to help her and/or the baby) in the room while having a baby. Plus, the main purpose of allowing people in the room during a woman giving birth is to make her more comfortable and calmer, not because they have some right to see the child born. Seeing the child born is secondary. And if the presence counters the first/main purpose, then it does more harm than good.

    I agree, it isn't like the man would be present during labor. He could stand by quietly in the delivery room with the mother's back to him, watch the birth without saying a word and then wait patiently to hold his child when brought to the nursery. That sounds very reasonable. I know the couple is estranged and not married. I hope the man insists on being a part of the child's life. It is going to need a good dad.
