Surprisingly, one in four fathers who were inside the delivery room felt that they were useless during the birth process while one in six mothers felt their husbands presence to be a hindrance.

The reports of the study are consistent with the previous studies conducted at Imperial College and University of Bath. Surprisingly, the husband's presence inside the operating room during Cesarean section was found to transfer the anxiety instead of comforting her.
