PregnantBritish specialists consider that the father’s presence in the delivery room is not as beneficial for women as initially thought. Fathers transmit to future mothers tension and anxiety, therefore their bodies produce high amount of adrenaline. This hormone inhibits the secretion of oxytocin, a very important hormone during labor that induces contractions. Without oxytocin the woman has to endure a longer, more painful and difficult labor that may rise complications. Unfortunately, the presence of mail doctors in the delivery room has the same unwanted effect.
