Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My husband won't be here for the delivery how do I include him?

2 answers
I'm 36 weeks pregnant and my husband won't be here for the delivery of the baby due to training for the Army. How can I include him in the birth even though he's not here?

Since he's training he probably won't be able to video chat during the birth, but maybe you could have someone record the birth (if your hospital allows it) so that he can still see it. If recording isn't an option make sure someone is there to take lots of pictures.
Set up your web cam on your computer on a table next to you and record it. Later, send it to him. Or a camcorder and e-mail it to him in pieces.
