Have been told that hubby will likely not be allowed to be present for my programmed Cesarean on Thursday and whilst I’ve been trying not to stress, it’s actually really traumatising me.
The hospital uses the ‘there’s too many people who faint’ excuse which is of course total nonsense. I see on internet forums that various excuses are used to keep fathers out of programmed c-sections in French hospitals.
Has anyone managed to successfully argue their way in? Any recent experience would be gratefully received for the best way to try to persuade hospital to allow it.
He should be a part of our experience, meeting our baby for the first time together and I just know I’ll be so much calmer if he’s there.
If other developed nations can manage it almost systematically, why can’t France?? This sort of thing is driving me batty…
