DH and I completed our multiples childbirth class yesterday. They reviewed what to expect with each type of birth, and during a video of an ANIMATION of a c-section, DH had to put his head between his knees. The vaginal delivery video wasn't graphic at all - you could barely see anything. I told DH it isn't really like that (two pushes and the baby's out, barely any fluids or anything visible) and he said he'd be fine.

I'm not so sure.

I've witnessed both c-sections and vaginal deliveries during my rotation in L&D in nursing school. I'm not thrilled about the idea of a c-section just based on the idea that it's major surgery and I'm a baby when it comes to stuff like that (lol). I know, though, that I'd make it through just fine with the right amount of support.... but DH won't be able to support me if he's passed out on the floor.

I have looked into a doula, and I'm meeting her this weekend. I don't want family in the delivery room with us. But I want DH to be able to be there for me.

Any success stories with squeamish DHs? Did he pull through just fine or was he breathing into a paper bag during delivery?
