‘Maybe We Should Celebrate Fathers More Often’
No arguments here.
The standout line in Angel Roberson’s tribute to dads has to be this, in regards to fathers in the delivery room: “This should be a special time for both mother and father. But some may be given the impression that they are just an accessory, not a partner, in this process. We are generally so focused on mother and baby we may overlook the father.”
Now, I don’t think anyone’s suggesting that the father’s pushing a watermelon out of his ass or doing anything as tough as childbirth. But as a general sentiment, it’s nice to hear people consider the father in the childbirth process, including them more than just the average “okay, dad you want to come over here and cut the cord and try not to eff it up?”
