Re: Men watching natural birth of child
I think this is the time to be with a woman giving her whatever support you can, and not evading the situation. Obviously if you're going to be falling apart when things get difficult, it's better to stay away, but starting a baby is something two people do together, and childbirth isn't exactly the end of the process, but it's an important point along the way. Better to be there holding her hand or whatever makes it easiest for her, than out somewhere getting drunk (which was a tradition in bygone days). You may say it's not an elegant sight, but think how it feels from her side.
