Yes this is a must ! We women know what to expect or at least have a fair idea! The days of Dad sitting outside the labour ward waiting to hear the cries of their newborn are long gone. The Dads of today have a big job to do and it’s usually exactly what they are told!
My own husband passed out at our 8 week scan so needless to say I was not overly excited about his birthing partner abilities ! I even considered leaving him outside or at least having my Mum on stand by for when he did hit the floor! He proved me wrong though and was actually brilliant, he never left my side even when I squeezed the life out of his poor hands.
