It has produced a 16 page booklet called Reaching Out: Involving Fathers in Maternity Care, along with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Fatherhood Institute.
Men, says the college, shouldn't stop being involved after conception. The guide helps midwives in understanding how to involve men. I haven't read it but I hope it suggests to men that they don't read the paper as you are gripping the back of the chair in the middle of a contraction and that they make sure the midwife gives you pain relief.
I didn't notice my partner was traumatised but I'll ask him when I get home tonight.
