I was reading this article http://gawker.com/5830935/must-i-allow-my-cheating-ex+husband-to-watch-me-give-birth-asks-too+nice-lady
To sum it up when she was six months pregnant she discovered that her husband was having an affair. She is now closer to birth and her ex-husband and his family want to be at the birth of their son.
Would you allow the father of your child to be at the birth if you had broken up while you were still pregnant? Would it change for you if it was a mutual break-up instead of cheating?

I think if it was a mutual breakup, and we were still amicable, then yes. But if he cheated on me while I was pregnant, hell no.

If it were a mutual break up then I’d allow the father to be at the birth, but by cheating I think he’s forfeited the right to be around at such a personal moment.

Absolutely not. He gave up that right when he disrespected me by cheating on me. Though it’s his baby, it’s my body. There’s no way he would be in the delivery room!

No. They can be at the hospital but no way would he be in the room. He screwed up. his loss. I wouldnt even think about it for one second.

He could be in there is he wanted. I would have something sharp aimed at him at all times, but hey, if that’s his perogative.

@2PeasinaPod: Though it’s his baby, it’s my body.
My thoughts exactly. There would be no way that he would be in the delivery room.

He can be at the hospital, yes. In the room? No.

Hell, after reading the article, I wouldn’t even put his name on the birth certificate. In some states, that means his rights are therefore forfeited. I hope she’s in one of those states

No way. And his family could shove it.

Oh hell no. If he wanted to be in that delivery room then he should have kept his dick out of other chicks.
If it was a mutual break-up I wouldn’t have a problem with it, but the second he cheats, no dice. There’s enough stress and emotional stuff going on at a birth without the cheater being around to make it worse.

Um can I get a HELL NO? I dont want to be having thoughts of my husband banging another women while in labor! Stay outside. The nerve.
Did you guys see this part?
“I’m seven months pregnant. Six weeks ago, my husband confirmed my suspicions that he has been having an affair. She is now his girlfriend and he has moved in with her...”
OMG!! Is new Girlfriend gonna be at the hospital too? People suck.

Oh boy! At first I misinterpreted your title and text. It thought she was in a second marriage, that just went bad, adn the ex ex and family wanted to watch. That would be Weird.
Well as bad as the ex is, the child will still have family on the fathers side. You want to bring the child into a world low in confrontation. I feel like the kid will grow up with a lot of animosity. Really depends on how close the family is and their treatment regardless of the husband towards her.
If I were pregnant and this happened to me my feelings would be along the lines of the columnist 😉

At the hospital – probably, as long as the “other” woman wasn’t there. In the room – HELL NO!

I’m going to back up my vote with an oh HELL no
