Have you or anyone you know passed out at a birth?

It's pretty common for birth partners to pass out during a delivery.

I know my friend passed out at the birth of his daughter. Luckily a nurse caught him and he came to pretty quickly!

Superb Opinion

  • I would not be able to deal with weak men like that. My husband delivered 1 of our kids and was right there watching for the other 3(i caught 2 of them) and immediately handed him them since I disassociated so bad that I couldn't hold the babies. If he was weak in those moments I don't know what I would have done. Our babies would have ended up on the floor lol

    • It's not weak. It's a lot to witness someone you love going through and having no way to help ease their pain

    • It is weak if the man is the father. He put the baby in there, he should be the one taking it out. A dad needs to be there to be supportive and strong for his family that he created

    • You're acting as if they have control over it 💀 bfr

  • My father did when I was born apparently. My mom tells me the story all of the time about how when I was born, my dad walked in the room and saw my head ripping through her vagina, and he passed out on the floor outside, lol

Most Helpful Guys

  • No.

    When my wife was getting an epidural the guy asked me to leave.

    I asked the nurses station what that was about. They said some people pass out. Once I found out why they wanted me to leave I went right back in there.

    They guy was taken aback and was like is something wrong? I just said no, just tend to my wife.

  • I didn't pass out during the birth of my daughter, but I lost my balance afterwards when the nurse pressed my wife's stomach to flush out the remaining blood and fluids.

    • Ickyy

    • Apparently it's a standard practice to clean up and check for hemorrhaging.

  • It didn't bother me in the least.

  • My wife had C-Sections. I knew/know that I don't do well with blood so I wisely was not there for that and thus didn't pass out.

    • How did she feel about you not being there?

    • She was glad for two reasons: First, I didn't pass out, throw up, etc. She wanted the doctors attention on her lol. Second, I was able to instantly meet up with the baby in all the cases as they did clean up while they stitched my wife up and got her into recovery. In her eyes this was a win win. For our first baby our chaplain's wife got to be there for delivery and her mom was there for subsequent ones.

  • No problem with the miracle of life

  • Fortunately nothing ever seems faze my husband, and certainly not by being present when I've delivered both our children.

  • Nope. Been there for both my son's and daughter's birth, no wobbles.

  • No, I was wide awake for the births of all 3 of my kids. Once the doc kept telling me to sit down because I stood up to get a better look at what he was doing.

    • My wife had C sections for all 3 of our kids. After kid number 3 we decidedctobhave her neutered. I watched while I made sure the doc cut a big enough piece if the tube because sometimes they grow back.

  • I only saw two of my kids being born. I didn't faint. It was the most amazing thing to watch. Then I cut the umbilical cord

  • Yeah! Many times I had seen that while posted in OBGY department during my internship

  • No. Not what I know.

  • Nope, I was fine with my sons birth. I even took pictures of it.

  • Fortunately not lol

  • Really I'm shocked

  • It's to painful for the female and the man is shocked on how big that pussy gets to pass the child lol

  • Nope.

  • No but the Cesarean was an eye opener. Seeing your missus cut wide open while on the good stuff started to melt my resolve so I didn't focus on that side of things too much.
    Natural birth was harder work for her but I found that ok.

  • I heard my ex brother in law passed out when my sister gave birth.
