Two Australian midwives messed up about the worst behavior they’ve seen from dads in the birth suite – including spinning their partners to meet friends in the pub
The couple were careful to hide the fathers’ identities in their short clip, while still devastating their behavior, like men asking when their partner’s stretch marks will fade.
The midwives said they hate it when men scroll aimlessly through their phones while their partners breathe through painful contractions.
And unsurprisingly, leaving a working woman behind to “ go to the pub with their friends ” wasn’t a popular move either.
Nor ‘missed the birth to validate the parking ticket,’ the women said.
Another man once asked if his partner’s vagina would ever return to normal because the midwife was putting in stitches.
And some ‘shit in the hospital toilet with the door open’ while their partners and midwives work meters away.
Some fathers even try to put a hat on their babies when the head is being crowned – which the midwives found frustrating, too.
The women made it clear that the things they revealed in the video were things they had seen and heard with their own eyes and ears.
Thousands of people who saw the clip were in disbelief.
‘Is this true? I feel so happy having four babies, ”said one woman, shocked.
“These are so sad, those poor mothers,” said another woman.

“How can these men have so little empathy, this makes me want to stay single,” said another woman.
But others had similar stories to tell, despite being shocked.
“Hanging in the pub especially during childbirth, two guys from work did that and left their wives alone at work,” said one man.
“A woman I know said her husband silenced her during childbirth. That’s when she knew it was over, ‘a woman revealed.
Another said her partner complained after 27 hours that he was tired, while a woman revealed that her husband was talking to his mistress all the time.
Not everyone agreed that the behavior was bad.
“I like the hat, I would have laughed at the baby,” said one woman.
Others called the midwives judgmental, saying the mothers could have agreed with what their husbands were doing.
And some mothers shared their positive experiences.
“Mine went to the bathroom and came back with an iced coffee and a chicken sandwich because he knows they’re my comfort food,” one woman said.
