    To be there during delivery ... or not?


    Apparently, if your partner is giving birth in a Government, most times you are not allowed to be there.

    But, since you have chosen a Private Hospital, sometimes that can be an option for you.

    I ummed and arhed and we decided to ask the doctor if this was allowable.

    Sure ... step this way Dad to be.

    This doctor, and I'm sure yours as well was very accommodating and did his best to guide us ... well me, through the process.


    For me, there was a change of cloths into some hospital garb, new shoes and a hair net ... not the sexiest, but not important.

    Waited maybe 30 - 45 mins (seemed like hours) while they prepped my partner and then guided me into the operating theatre.

    I was sat at the head of the Table, next to my Partner and was basically instructed to simply remain there.

    There were 10 people running round doing stuff plus, from what I could gather another observing doctor and two others with him.




    Heck, they even warmed the sheets that the babies got cradled in after the birth ...

    The balance of the details are a bit to personal to share ... suffice to say, Mum and Dad to two relatively healthy premature TWINS.


    So, following the birth, I get shuffled out of theatre, the Doctor is again helpfull in directing me into what happens next.

    Then waited, maybe a couple of hours before the new Mum arrived in our room.

    The bubs were undergoing assessment in their sort of ICU.


    There is lots of waiting ... lots.

    It's down to the doctor as far as I'm aware, private or not. I was not allowed in the first time but the second time, for twins, I was allowed in and allowed to take photo's.

    Mate, you had a private room?

    If so, maybe the reason why you were allowed.

    Well done.


    When I was in Siriraj Hospital (Thailand's largest Public) we walked past the 'Birthing Ward' and there may have been 8 + ladies in the there and no way was any male partner allowed in, understandable also.

    We had a private room the first time but the doctor still wouldn't allow my attendance. At the second birthing we just used a different doctor.
