    Now as a male I cannot even imagine the mental, emotional, and social bond that a mother will have with their children. I just know the connection that I share with mines and it has even grown stronger since I started working at home. I was there when all of them were born and I have watched they grow every day. Just with that I can feel the magic of life. So I hope that one lady gets over her anger, she has to remember how it was even just a hundred years ago when it came to child birth. This post put a smile on my face, because was I was writing you made my think about how much my little people mean to me. Thanks

    There is a special bond between a woman and her child that men can never know nor understand. Being present at the birth of both of my sons I can tell you time stood still, I entered another universe as my wife’s body was used for a higher purpose.
    It might be advisable for an expectant mom to become in tune with her physician so trust and respect are developed before the birthing time.
    Just my thoughts,

      Hi Rick,
      I absolutely agree with you. There is much a woman needs to prepare fore even BEFORE seeing her doctor. Having respect and trust in a doctor is important. Not all physicians share this with their moms-to-be. Women need to believe more in themselves and their abilities first then finding a care giver that fit’s the mom’s values. I really appreciate you sharing your experience and having a glimpse, from a man’s perspective, about the birth of his children. hank you!

  3. Those who are at the center of a birthing moment, are deeply impacted by it for their entire lives.

    It is an empowering event, even when there is regret and second guessing. And as you point out, Lesly, sharing the experience postpartum, is validating and educational when we allow it to be.
