I agree with Smokering and philomom. I have no patience for guys who wont attend their wife's labor and their child's entrance into the world. It is their kid, too!

I look at it this way: DH is my best friend in the whole world. He helped me get pregnant, this baby is just as much a part of him as it is me, and I cannot imagine my very best friend not holding my hand and rubbing my back during the worst pain of my life. Plus, there is a big emotion that men usually have after watching their wives push a baby out. For my DH, he thought I hung the moon for about 3 months after DD was born. He had this feeling that I was way stronger and more capable than he had ever viewed me before. IMO, I couldnt be married to anyone who wasnt willing to hold my hand through both the best and the worst times of life.

I agree with this as well. I wasn't into going through painful contractions, or risking tearing by pushing a baby out of my vagina, or going through weeks of recovery. But I did it, and I fully expected my husband to be beside me, doing everything he could to support me through that time. I don't know if I could forgive my husband if he decided he just didn't want to be there while I went through that.
