I have just completed an article entitled The Husband Support Role in Labor
There was a time when the husband’s role in labor and childbirth was delegated to the back waiting room. The scene was one of an anxious Father pacing the floor with a cigar in his mouth. He was out of the loop. He was clueless and powerless………Times have changed………Husbands have regained much lost ground and become active in the labor support role. This is a vitally important role as no one on earth can fill the place of the husband to his wife who is experiencing such a life changing event: the birth of their child. It has now come full circle: the conception of the child, the months of pregnancy, the expectation of labor, the experience of birth, the joy of new life.
Thanks to my sister-in-law for the beautiful father daughter picture of my husband and baby girl. She is an excellent photographer that does beautiful work.
