Re: Would you ever let your Dad watch you give birth?

Loving supportive whatever IDC!


And If my labor is going to be longer than an hour, I dont plan on just laying on my back- so Near my head, on my head doesnt make a difference.

My dad wasnt standing there when he was made, so he doesnt need to be standing there when he comes out!

I really dont want to be naked and bloody and all that in front of my dad. He can come in after the birth. He would pass if I offered anyway. lol

He was prefectly happy in the waiting room when my son was born, and if he's coming to this birth, he'll be happy there again!

Yes I would no problem with my dad watching me give birth , in fact if it were not for the c-section last time he would have been there for my sons birth , and with this baby we are all hoping they ( mom and dad ) can make it up here for the birth . My dad and I are close plus he is a medical transcriptionest so he would really enjoy the whole medical part as well as the awesome thing birth is lol .

I don't think I would care once I was in labor! But my dad said one time, "Once you seen one, you've seen'em all!", but I don't think he'd stay in the room if I wanted him too...He can't stand to see his babygirl in pain!
He was at the hospital with both of my munchkins birth and he kept Chloe during my son's birth.

I would.

One, its just a vagina

two humans give birth, it is completely natural.

three, i think all humans should have the opportunity to see another human life be born as many times as they can. It is such an experience.

Four, if my male OB/GYN or male midwife or my husband can help me during the birth, why not my dad?

Now of course this all has to do with your relationship with your father. If you dont have a good relationship, of course not. But I do and i would love for my father to be a part of that with me.
