Okay, I really can’t fault these guys – I’ve seen men with all the machismo in the world get squeamish at the sight of a woman squeezing a tiny human through her birth canal.
But, unfortunately, there is another side of this story that’s rarely discussed. Loss of libido after having a baby is a real thing. Several people claim that relationships quickly went south after the baby arrived.
What’s worse is that men in certain cases have actually blamed the decline in sexual intimacy on the traumatic experience of witnessing the birth of their child?
Sad, but true. And it’s more common then you think.
For expecting women out there: Do you want the father in the room with you during the birthing process? And if he refuses to be present in the delivery room, do you feel comfortable honoring his wishes?
