Nowadays men have become bold enough to accompany their wives to the delivery room to support and show them love. Journalist Hillary Lisimba just like other gentlemen accompanied his wife to the delivery room, his wife Brenda left him with scars that remind him of his son.
“She sank her nails deep into my flesh while writhing in pain. It was such a huge scratch that I still have the scar to this day, years later,” he stated.
“I held her hands throughout the process and told her we were in it together and the hardest moment was when she seemed to give up at some point, and we had to keep telling her to try again,” he narrated
Journalist Lisimba said that he will always treasure the experience in the delivery room.
Women’s experiences in the delivery room can be different other women have an easy time while others labor for several hours before they can deliver. Nowadays men are tough enough to show support and care to their wives in the delivery room.
Lisimba said that he witnessed his wife bringing forth their first child.
“I had two reasons, the first was that I’d heard some midwives mistreat women during delivery and I didn’t want her to experience that. So I went in to keep guard,” Lisimba stated.
“The second was curiosity. I had been told men faint inside there, and generally, I like exploring the road less taken.”
The father of one said that he will always treasure this experience.
“I was not scared at all. I held her hands throughout the process and told her we were in it together. The hardest moment was when she seemed to give up at some point and we had to keep telling her to try again,” he added.
When Lisimba was asked if he would accompany his wife to the delivery room he said:
“Yes, I’d do it again if we got another baby, but that is not in our plans yet.”
He also added they are not planning on having any other kid and they will raise their son only for now.
“One child is a lot of work and expenses. So far we are fine with the one we have as we are able to give him a quality life, but who knows maybe we’ll see the need to add another later,” he narrated.
“Women are strong. Stronger than men view them actually. Delivery rooms are matters of life and death,” Lisimba stated.
“I have learnt to appreciate her more than I did before I saw her in the DR. It has also made me close to my son because I saw him when he was one second old, even before my wife did.” He added.
