Okay, so my girlfriend is 8 months pregnant, and she just told me that she doesn't want her husband to be with her when she gives birth to their first child. She's worried that he'll never look at her the same way if he sees her give birth. I am completely baffled by this and I told her that it's an amazing experience and that he should be there to give her support, but nothing doing. Her husband doesn't seem to care either way. I think that they will both regret it if he isn't there for the delivery. Am I out to lunch?
