5 Delivery Room Rules for Expectant Dads

June 20, 2012

Given that we’re about to have our third child, I thought I’d share five rules to help expectant dads survive and navigate the newborn experience. Below is an infographic I developed titled – Baby Delivery: 101.

    In the old days, women had their babies under anesthetic, and the husband stayed in the waiting room until it was time for some nurse to show him his baby.

    We were hit with all that anesthetic just at the time we were being shoved out of that nice, warm, comfortable place, after which we were rudely awakened by a doctor holding us upside down and paddling us.

    No wonder my generation was so messed up! 😉

    You just crack me up! So, is your wife being patient with you or has she had it?

      Oh, she’s “had it” with me for the past decade or so. However, I merely remind her that this type of sophomoric activity on my part is clearly covered under the “…for better or for worse…” provision of our marital agreement 😉
