How can your partner help?
By simply being there... Seeing that most hospitals allow your partner in the operating room.
A number of hospitals will allow the partner to go into the operating room unless it is an emergency caesarean section. By simply being there and telling the patient what is happening, the partner can provide comfort and support while the patient is undergoing the operation.Most men, in fact, do not faint in the operating room. However, if the partner feels anxious about the operating theatre atmosphere, he should rather wait outside. The patient will be screened off with a drape to block the view of the surgery from her and her partner. Sometimes, the doctor will allow the partner to hold the baby and to take photographs,but it is always better to make sure about this before the surgery.
