    That's cold. Obviously you care more about the man making a point than the health and well-being of mom and baby. How sad. Bless your heart.

    Except for the fact that he was willing to add more stress to the birthing process. Who would want to do that????

    He may be genuinely interested in his child, but his actions are showing that he does not care for the welfare of the mother who is carrying the child.

    Even though the tide is slowing turning, men have gotten a raw deal where child support/custody issues are concerned. Gradually things are changing. But as far as childbirth is concerned....this is not a raw deal...it just is what it is. His actions hopefully are not a foreshadowing on their future.

    Entertainment value aside, the common sense solution to this problem was established within the first few pages of the thread.

    Paternal rights: Yes.

    Fathers in the delivery room if it is going to cause problems: No.

    The health and well being of the mother and baby simply come first.

    Why would you think she is using the delivery room to avoid reality? The privacy issue nails it. But the fact that his presence may cause her to become more stressed and unfocused is not selfish. It is for the sake of the baby. Their baby.

    All I can say at this point is that I am very happy that my husband opted out of being in the delivery room! The nurses suggested that he go get breakfast somewhere, which he did, and by the time he gobbled down some eggs and toast and returned, my son was delivered, which made all of us happy...me especially, since I'm not fond of pain! : Oddly, women apparently forget the pain, since I had other children after that!

    Nature's got to trick you gals into popping those little buggers out somehow.

    "Survival of the species," and all that.

    edit:

    Honestly though (while I'm glad that you're happy with the results), I think I'd feel like a bit of heel going out to breakfast while my wife was in labor. lol
