For every mother who goes into labor, there’s a guy out there (and very likely right there in the labor room) who’s having a baby too. I don’t mean that literally. Lots of women have babies without a guy in sight and none of the men becoming new fathers actually have even one single contraction. What I mean is, guys in the labor room are important too. They have an important role to play in supporting the laboring mother and welcoming their new babies, but they also have needs of their own.
