That’s the idea! With any luck, he should be seated at my head behind the screen, looking at me and not see any more than I can, so technically the chance of fainting should be close to zero… plus he’s worked in butcher’s shops for years (he he!)
I know of dozens of people who have had their partners present in this way in the UK, US, Australia and other countries and I can’t find anyone who has a story of a problem so I’m not sure why they use it as so much of an excuse…
The midwife seemed a little more optimistic today that he may be allowed to accompany me but the final decision still rests on the mood of the doctor and anaesthetist tomorrow, so fingers crossed!
Will introduce you all to the newest SFN member as soon as possible. Thanks all again for your support!
