Es gibt nur einen guten Grund, nicht dabei zu sein!

“I think the parents should be present at the birth, except in this case!”

It is gibt nur einen guten Grund, nicht dabei zu sein!

We sat together all night

But I think we should fight this fight together. Especially with the first birth, both sides don’t know what to expect. There is no master plan for this. The duration of work cannot be predicted on its own. For example, my wife and I sat together all night before it really started. Even if (I felt) unable to help in between, I could feel it was important to be there to support her.
