I’m a student midwife and can’t stand dads in the delivery room, they constantly ask stupid questions | The Sun
9th June 2022

IT can be one of the most stressful situations in a person's life.

But one student midwife has little patience for dads in the delivery room – especially when they constantly say stupid things.

Gemma Brusnahan took to TikTok to share a video explaining the "things dads do in the delivery room that annoy me".

Firstly, Gemma can't stand it when dads-to-be ask "how much longer is this going to take?"

She also hates it when they sit on their phone while their partner is pushing, or when they have the audacity to fall asleep in the delivery room.

And don't even get her started on the men who leave the room.

In the comments section of the video, people were quick to reveal their own tales of dad disrespect in the delivery room.

"While my daughter was literally crowning, her dad asked if he was 'right to go out for a smoke'," one wrote.

"I told him not to bother coming back in if he left."

"My partner fell asleep and I threw a shoe at him," another added.

While a third wrote: "How about arrive late – in second stage then ask the midwife if they are a 'real' nurse and if so could they take a look at his shoulder that he hurt."

But others insisted that one of Gemma's points – about dads falling asleep – isn't actually that bad in certain situations.

"Unless you are pushing- let them nap," one wrote.

"Rather have them be well rested so they can take care of baby and mum?"

"I was mature enough to let my partner sleep," another added.

"Just cause I had to sit and wait to go into labour didn't mean I was keeping him awake as well."

"If I’m in labour and my partner needs to sleep I’m okay with that but as soon as I start pushing he better be up!" a third commented.
