Chinese Hospital

In China, fathers are starting to find their way somewhere they weren’t previously allowed: the delivery room.

The Telegraph has a story up about the change. Until recently, says Tessa Thorniley, expectant fathers in China were either at work or sitting in the waiting room while their wives gave birth. It was only in the last couple of years that Chinese fathers-to-be began to take birthing classes and pay extra for private rooms.

And when men started insisting that they be allowed to share the birthing process, some (“less crowded”) public hospitals have started to let men in.
