How often do we, as women, wonder what our husband/partner is
thinking about our plans for a caesarean/VBAC birth?
Do we discuss with them what they remember of the past
experiences of birth, that we were both intrinsically involved in?
We choose our man to accompany us on our journey into parenthood, but
we often don't truly 'involve' them in the thoughts, emotions, issues
and worries that we encounter along the way.
What better way to understand our partners emotions surrounding these
vital life experiences than through the words of men who have been
'there'. These Men's stories are also valuable to share with your
partners, to let them know that they aren't alone in feeling as they do
during this exciting phase in both your lives (the time of growing a
family and birthing your children).
If you can coerce any male you know (yourself, if you're a guy?) into
writing something about this, we would really appreciate, and
honour all efforts we receive. The stories should focus on past
birth experiences and impending caesarean/VBAC/EBAC issues.
