"I felt like I did as best as I could to support my wife during labour, although there were a couple of moments where I felt absolutely terrified. I'm not sure if she noticed. If I could give any advice to another dad, it would be to always ask what’s happening and to speak up for your partner. If I didn’t ask, they didn’t think to tell me what was going on and that’s when I would get scared and feel like I wasn’t doing my part. The other thing I would say is to make sure you eat before you go to hospital. It was the middle of the night and I was starving and that was actually a bit distracting.
Guys don’t talk much about birth, so I wasn’t prepared for how totally unbelievable it was to see my son being born. Best moment of my life. I can still picture his face. I thought he would be sleepy and crying, but he had these big open eyes and was just looking at me."
