Who else’s hand is she going to break and how does one get the skin to skin contact from the waiting room? I need The bar is calling and I must go shirt. So what you’re saying is your only in this for the stuff that’s easy and appealing to you? Yes, she should be pissed as she’s now thinking “what else is going to be too tough for you?” She’s the one pushing, not you. Get in there! She will never forget that you didn’t go in. Imagine you had to give birth and your spouse didn’t want to be there and let you do it alone. I’ve given birth twice and I wouldn’t want to look at the business end!! No thank you. Being there is enough, you don’t have to watch the gore.

Best The bar is calling and I must go shirt
Why does she want you at “the business end” The bar is calling and I must go shirt? Being by her face, holding her hand, encouraging her, comforting her seems more important. (Soon to be the mom of two and RN speaking here.) Even if you hold her leg or scrub in to be slowed in a cesarean, you don’t need to be face down in it if you aren’t comfortable watching. If she wants photos, hire a photographer. She had to deal with pregnancy for 9-10 months, and the labor, so the least you can do is be in the room and be present. Labor is literally a terrifying, threat to her life every time. The fact that she loves you enough to do it even ONCE means it’s time to put your big boy pants on to be there.
