Radio King Maina Kageni has revealed he would love to be present in the delivery room when his kid is being born.
According to Maina watching a woman bring life into this world is something worth witnessing.
“I would be in the delivery room. You are watching the creation of life and that is an amazing thing.
It’s a special moment how can you not want to be there?”
Mwalimu King’ang’i was however not impressed, he insisted the men should stay away from delivery rooms.
“Maybe I am the one who is afraid. There is something about me and hospitals. I do not even love how hospitals smell.”
In an interview with Mpasho, Classic 105 radio host Mike Mondo who is a certified nurse warned men against being in the delivery room.
According to him, the trauma some men go through is not worth it.
Men should stay outside the door and let their sister, your mum, your mum-in-law be there,” he said.
Mike said men are no use to their wives while in the delivery room.
“In most cases, they will end up being stressed out after the experience,” he said.
