    Could you or would you watch your own sister give birth to a child? What about stay in the same room for "support" (whatever that means).
     
  2. My first question would be: where is the father of the baby?? And if he's scarce, I'd rather the father of the mother-to-be do the honors, but if there's no one else and you don't mind some folks looking at you a little wierd (potentially) or she specifically called you out...if you are cool with it and aren't likely to faint.

    Peace,
    Greg

    More than a little weird. Depends on the circumstances, maybe.

    No thanks. There's absolutely no compelling reason that would require me to do that. Good luck though, sis! If you need my assistance for anything between the time you're finished spewing the kid out and the time it's 18, I'm on board! :)

    The original discussion came up when a co-worker told me that his sister gave birth the other day and the "baby daddy" was away in Afghanistan and he was the only one around to give her "support".
     
  8. At their age...would be a media sensation!!

    That's sweet. When it comes down to it it's not that terrible considering the alternative--she's alone. And, he could've been north of the belly & still helpful, where most daddies /supporters hang out. Like takin you're kid sister to the dentist. Just don't look at the treasure.

    Sure, why not. I'm glad I don't have a sister though. :D

    Stay near her head and I see nothing weird about it. Seriously, I don't think I saw my wife's "private bits" once when either of our kids were born (or for months after :( ). There's "weird" or uncomfortable stuff, but nothing that would make it "inappropriate" for a sibling to be there.

    Women NEED support for this. If you're the closest she has available you'd be a dick to refuse.

    "Watching your sister give birth" sounds strong. I'd say "support" your sister. If there's no one else to support, then do it. Might be a good story in the future. We all come to this world the same way.

    My son turns 2 this Friday. It was a great experience! It's a yes for me.
     
  14. Sure why not? Childbirth is a wonderful natural thing! After 3 kids 2 of them being planned home births with a midwife I can tell you there is nothing sexual about it.

    I honestly don't know why adults are so freaked out by the idea of seeing other people's genitals. I'm assuming most men here have seen a vulva. Your sister's isn't much different, I promise.

    Yes, I bet its not so different but its the fact that its your OWN sisters that makes it icky for most guys, me thinks. In America there is quite a strong social taboo with most genitalia, let alone your own sisters. Besides, like most people mentioned you don't haved to be staring at it in order to be there for her.

    Not my kid, not my responsibility. I'm no midwife nor do I choose to be. Outside of her having the kid before she reaches the hospital, it would hardly make me a dick.

    I think you shouldn't forget to bring popcorn. The prices at the hospital snack counter are ridiculous.

    Powerful experience, scary for first time mom. Weird because the portal.
    Once had dinner with couple, best friend of my date, and watched birth film of newborn before dessert. That was weird.
