Quoting toblerone1992:" my oh wasnt there for the birth of our son either! we both have a chil each from a previous realationship so it was our fist! i kept telling the midwives i couldnt push i had to wait lol!"
Oh no! At least my DH was there for our son. My DH wasn't rushing like he should have, BUT, the nurses also informed me the other children wouldn't be allowed in the room while I was giving birth... so even if he had made it in time, he would have had to sit in the waiting room until after she was born anyway. But it freakin sucks to give birth with no type of family or friends there for you. Thankfully my nurses were ANGELS, they were so supportive and took DH's place and held my hand the whole way through and were SO nice and caring. So that helped but still doesn't replace the father of your children.
