A thoroughly good thing to do. I vividly remember the terror I felt when my partner had to leave the ward at 9 PM, leaving me alone post-caesarean with a screaming hungry baby for whom my milk had not yet come in. (No babymoon for us! And I confess I desperately longed for the US-style baby nurseries I’d seen on TV. In the UK, they rightly work hard to promote bonding and breastfeeding, even after caesareans. But, to my mind, they wrongly prioritise this above the mother’s recovery and sanity.) I also remember all the NHS brochures on parenting that seemed designed exclusively for single mums– not a word about any other adult presence, but lots of homilies on the importance of constant skin to skin contact with mum. So yes, great move!
But do you have to suggest scheduling ante-natal visits around football matches, and getting men’s mags in waiting rooms? Why not go instead with “scheduling around the needs of both parents”, and “catering for a broader variety of interests in the waiting room?” (I’d certainly have liked something other than women’s mags.)
