Talk about a Madonna/whore complex

Doctor Keith Ablow in the Health section of the New York Times today writes of men who have come to him after being with their wives in the delivery room and who then have a hard time feeling "romantic" towards the new mothers after witnessing the child emerging from the wife's body.

Are you kidding me???

A woman - the woman you allegedly love - commits to creating a new life with you, and all the lifetime of responsibility that entails, allows her body and health to undergo all sorts of changes and risks over the course of nine months, and then when your kid pops out of her body, slimy and squirming, you just let out a loud "Ewwwwwwwww! Icky! Gross!" and scurry away?!? Way to go, guys!

You need to get your heads out of FHM and all the online porn you've been looking at and realize that a woman can be many avatars in one, and grow up and get over yourselves.

Most concerning is how he closes the article:

Whether the father is present in the delivery room is a couple's personal decision, of course.

But it is a decision that involves potential gains and potential losses, and too few couples realize that fact or are willing to talk about it.

Women may want to consider the risks as they invite their partners to watch them bring new life into the world. For some of the passion that binds them together may leave their lives at the very same time.

Great, doc, so we should go back to the old days, when the woman was wheeled off to do all the "dirty work" on her own, while the men paced up and down in a waiting room?

My God!! the kid was made by both; mom and dad. Its nature that decided mom has to carry the baby for 9 months (which must be awesome but tired and scary as well), and the least a good couple and father can do is motivate his couple during the whole pregnancy and labor time, and not miss the birth of his own child....
