I know that childbirth is not glamorous but I absolutely couldnt imagine not having my husband there. I’ve also heard about the possibility of pooping while pushing but i really dont think its an issue at all.. he can stay by my head or you can watch if he wants. I think being able to share such a magical moment would only bring us closer.

Whenever this happens for us, I really don’t want him seeing anything, but I do really want him there holding my hand and helping me get through it.

He’s definitely going to be there- but I might make him stay up with me not “down there”.  He’s already seen me at my worst and at my best and this will just be another chapter in our story.

I wouldn’t have missed the look on his face for anything… being there to see his child come into the world was one of the most amazing moments of his life.

I dont mind my hubby in there.

But what I DONT want is ANYBODY else in the room!!! Im talking about family and friends. My FI’s brothers wife gave birth earlier this year and I heard that my Future Sister-In-Law and Future Mother-In-Law was in the room during the labor.

I wont want my family in there, let alone my FI’s family!! Hell no!

The birthing is something private between my Fiance, dr and nurses and myself.

I dont want anybody else in there to see whatever happens during labor.

I can’t imagine giving birth without my husband present. I would be terrified without him. And I’m thinking that he’ll be all about it. He’ll want to see everything. Except the placenta. That just grosses both of us out.

He was the only one I wanted there during the delivery of our son.. I DID tell him NOT TO LOOK when our son was crowning, but did he listen? noooooooope. his memory to repress I suppose 😛

@USAandKSA: i could imagine not allowing my hubby in the room to watch the beautiful baby that HE HELPED CREATE come out of his wife’s body. i feel like that is such an injustice to him, because he was just as big of a part as making it as you were.

i love my hubby so much, and i know he would love me no matter what i look like or what i do when i am in labor. he respects me and adores me, and i am sure he is just proud to be bringing a baby into the world, he wouldnt care about all the nasty stuff that goes on.

i am sure your hubby would feel the same way!

@USAandKSA: So you never want him to see you not looking “pretty”? That seems like a lot of work. What about when you’re sick with the flu, or ate something that didn’t agree with you?

I just can’t imagine! My husband has seen it all, it’s one of the perks of being married, being with someone you’re totally comfortable being youself with, even when you don’t look your best.
