And sometimes the pure exhaustion of being a new parent causes us to make mistakes that could cause our babies their lives.
Prior to the 1970’s, fathers weren’t allowed in the birthing room, but then studies suggested that pregnant women needed fewer painkillers if their partner was present while giving birth.
