Does it seem like most men just skip right over childbirth in their minds? Like 'awesome, I get to make her pregnant' to 'yay, a kid to throw a ball around with.' There're some step in between those events. One of them, the one most women spend nine months or more preparing for, is labor and delivery. Until their partners are in the birthing suite, most men have never seen an actual birth. This may need to change. Why, you ask? Because at least five percent of dads pass out during the birth of their first child. Another eight percent of papas ended up having to stand outside in the hall or otherwise leave the room.
