DH has no interest (I really think he feels like the baby can "feel" it, but he hasn't admitted that to me). He also wanted decline to "watch" any crowning or birth from that angle. He never left the side of my head and never had his hands off me. Either stroking my head, or holding my hands.

Now, I did read somewhere the mom could do it, but I don't think I want to either...

Amanda, my DH is the exact same way. He'd actually prefer it if the baby would just magically come forth and none of the L&D had to happen at all! Soooo... my OB will cut the cord again. Mom is driving up from 10 hours away, so she'll be with DD and I wouldn't have her or anyone else in there with me and DH anyway...

DH will be cutting it. He's actually excited about watching her be born.

Last time around my entire pregnancy he was such a baby about it and talking about how gross it would be and how traumatized he would be if he had to watch a baby shoot out of my crotch He was so adamant right up until 5 minutes before I delivered that he'd stay up by my head... but when I was ready to push, it all happened so fast and the doctor and nurse were yelling at him to grab my leg and help me so he took one little peek... and got SO excited and told me he could see her hair! So he watched and he was just so in awe of everything and he wanted to cut the cord. And now he talks about how awesome it will be to experience that again.

That is sooo sweet

I just asked DH, "Do you wanna cut the cord?" and he said "Sure!". So DH will do it

DH will be up by my head and holding my hand. He has no real interest in cutting the cord, but he will if it's something I want him to do. My fear is that if he doesn't, he'll look back with regret (although he assures me that this will not happen).

So..... probably the doctor unless DH gets a sudden "need" to do it.

DBF...he's always been very set on doing that but also very set on NOT going anywhere below my shoulders, lol. Honestly, I don't want him anywhere below my shoulders during delivery either.

I'm going to do it. If all goes well and they place the baby on my chest I plan to BF right away,if he's interested and then wait for the cord to stop pulsating and then I will cut the cord myself.

I never thought it was an option. I just assumed that Daddy or the doctor would do it. My doula asked me if I wanted to and I was like "huh,really,I can do that?". She said sure. So hopefully if all goes as planned then I'll be the one to cut my babies cord.

DH, but I think it's 50/50 whether he'll still be standing upright at that point. He's VERY queesy about the whole birth thing!

I definately don't want to.

DH isn't sure yet. We're going to leave it until it happens and see.

His mother has informed us that he WILL be cutting the cord.

I can't believe she's known him for 34 years and I've known him for 6 years 10 months and I KNEW 6 years and 9 months ago that YOU DON'T TELL HIM WHAT TO DO =) And again, he's 34.

If Keith won't do it and Justin is there, Justin will cut it.

And if Justin isn't there...the doctor will cut it.

The OB - DH wasn't allowed due to my c-section, so I am assuming it'll be the same this time around.

Not sure, DH doesn't have any interest. I'll have the doc ask before she does it to see if anyone else in the room does. I'd really like him to cut it though.
