Husband by his wife’s side as she goes through labor. No one ever thinks of the pain he goes through watching her suffer…
^ that comment..
My husband was great during my labor. Rubbing my back, holding my hands, feeding me ice, holding my arm and helping me walk around, but I did feel sorry for him a few times during the ordeal. There was one moment in particular where I looked at him and just whispered ‘help me’ and he broke down because there was nothing else he could do.
Men might not be able to feel the physical pain of birth, but they certainly feel the emotional pain of it. Bless all SOs who help their partner through labor and delivery.
Thank you for this post!
