    I agree it seems a bit strange she didn't mind being filmed but didn't want her husband in, but to get baby out maybe she felt she wanted to lose her inhibitions and worrying about how her husband was going to see her meant she felt she would find it more difficult and be self conscious? A hidden camera may not have felt as intrusive as a person she wishes to remain attractive in front of? I guess she knew she could always refuse the footage being shown if it wasn't to her liking too! I can understand sometimes why women would prefer partners not being present, there are some things I wish my husband could un-see!! Although I dont regret having his support, maybe I'd have 'let go' more if he hadn't been there! Just a thought..

    Many a baby has been born the minute a husband has walked out of the room.....

    I could actually see her point.....and lets be honest, its her body, her work and what she wants goes!! At least they spoke about it prior to the birth, he knew her reasons. Though I got a bit miffed for him when he had to leave after Milla was born......
    Totally loved how the dads got all emotional!!!

    Just caught up on the last 3 weeks of OBEM so I can finally join in this thread again! I felt sad when she asked Milla's dad to leave when she was born too! Also when the dad was getting upset about his girlfriend having the miscarriage at 11 weeks, I thought that was really poignant because you hardly see dads get upset about miscarriages really.

    I was really cheesed off at last night's ep, when the lady was saying that c-sec is an easy option and that the celebs have them. They didn't bring on a midwife to give a balanced POV, which I think is shocking.

    yes i know what you mean, surely having a c-section should be defined as medical requirement and best for mother and child in certain situations, not whether it fashionable or not!!! Although you do have the arguement that its about personal and informed choice! Everyone is different and will have differing ideals.
