  • Mine watched my daughter be born when we were 21 and he was soooooo grossed out, but he couldn't stop watching (he said it was like a train wreck!) With the second he still watched though I told him he didn't have to, he said it was super gross again.

  • No, he's pretty sensitive to gross stuff normally, but he got over it pretty quickly when he saw the beautiful baby. Hopefully most men are not too affected by this and if they are they are jerks.

  • Mine was there taking pictures. He handled it well. The pictures are gross.

  • My husband did. He wasn't really grossed out by the giving birth part though. The only part that really grossed him out was seeing the placenta. That grossed him out so bad that he couldn't eat. With my last pregnancy he almost passed out when I was giving birth. I asked him why and he said that the smell of the blood make him sick. It was funny though.

  • Mine was grossed out, but didn't say anything until a few months later. He just said that at the time, he wasn't sure about having sex again. But he got over it fairly quickly and now things are completely back to normal!

  • My husband watched and was not traumatized in any way! Most men are just concerned for their wives during labor and delivery-- not thinking, "wow, having a baby is really gross!" And most guys can't wait to have sex again after the delivery of a baby, so it must not gross them out too much! I kinda think if all he got from watching the delivery of his beautiful child was how gross it was, maybe he's a little immature?

  • My fiancee said that he felt like passing out but other than that he wasn't too grossed out and it didn't put him off having sex at all.
