Why fathers should be present at birth
The fathers’ presence at the births of their children positively influences the development, prosperity of the whole family. Women have a special gift to be able to deliver new live, the new baby. Because of women are those who have to survive these, sometimes, very hard nine months. All we know what is going on in our bodies and mental condition. We can even draw a conclusion that we become completely different person. If we are going to have a baby, we need to sacrifice a lot: our careers, appearances, social life, and so forth. By virtue of those factors, pregnant women are the focal point.
However, in this article we would like to present the role and the contribution of their involvement during the period of childbirth. Fathers’ engagement and support are critical. Usually, men want to run and hide at the night of labour. Some of them even faint and they never come back to maternity unit, they will come only to see their new born baby (after a few hard hours of delivery). However, your husband can be the man who not only wants so share your experiences, but subconsciously, he feels a lot. There should be added that some men who even experience some nausea, vomiting, and therefore they are in the condition as if they were pregnant.
In this manner, they have an opportunity try to be in women’s shoes. Maybe you should talk to your partner, offer him your assistance? Fathers can be also very sensitive and emotional. However, the worst is that such men will rather try to hide it, they do not want to show their feelings, because they are associated with the weakness, which is not acceptable. How they can express their feelings if they should be a tower of strength for their wife’s.
Our main aim is to draw your attention to your partner. Maybe your pregnancy is quite difficult period in his life, maybe he wants to say something but he is too shy to express it. Nevertheless, researches in Denmark, state that fathers have a strong feeling of insecurity and inadequacy. However, none take it seriously, because the focus is on the mother and the baby. All childbirth classes, parenting preparation classes are also concentrated only on women, on their feelings, activity and healthy.
Men’s fair, expectations are not explored. It is said that after delivery, men sometimes suffer from postpartum depression which comes after the baby has been born. Because of these reasons, men also need support and talk in some groups where they can share their feelings, emotions connected with their fatherhood. Men cannot to be ignored in this field. Of course, mother will be always playing the first fiddle – it is unquestionable. But remember that your father will assist you for your life and bring up your children. Due to this, it is very key point to engage your partner in everything. For him it also might be difficult time, because his fatherhood overgrows him. You are at the first place, but remember also bout your husband and his feelings.
