My DH barely made it to the room since he went to park the car and I had DS in 8 minutes. So I had to rely on the nurses for my first and only Although besides holding my hand, I don’t think there is much DH could have done since it was really the medical team giving instructions. It all seems like a blur 13 years later.My dh got a stomach bug right before I went into labor with my second dd. Now, this was my second baby so it wasn't quite the same but I still had to deliver alone. My dh puked and puked in the bathroom until finally they began having to take care of him more than me and he had to leave. It was the amazing nurses who sat with me through contractions and held my hand and comforted me. They were so calm and it helped me to feel calm. If things change and your dh cannot be in the room, just know you will be in good, experienced hands.
