It is becoming common for men to accompany their wives or girlfriends inside the labour ward.
A number of Kenyan celebrities gave birth in the presence of their husbands or boyfriends. Others go to an extent of filming the whole experience.
Recently, blogger Abraham Mutai shared his first experience accompanying his wife in the delivery.
He described it as a humbling feeling.
"After 11hrs straight in that labor room, I'm now ready to be a true parent. Most men never know what happens in those labor wards. A few will brave the odds to be there by the bedside. And that's what I just did. The experience is humbling and changes your perspective on women!" he shared.
Mpasho reached out to a number of Nairobians, asking whether it is good for a man to accompany his wife in the delivery room.
Vera - "I would love that so that the man can know what I undergo when giving birth."
John Opiyo - "I wouldn't want to be in that position but it depends with the circumstances."
Brian Okoth - "I have gone into labour ward twice. Any man who wants to go can. If nurses allow you its ok. Some are afraid."
Peter - "I can not, i do not have the guts."
Eli - "It is beautiful, i have done so for all my children."
Rose- "They should be there to see what we go through so that they treat us well because of what we go through during labour."
