Last year, when Hollie Lo of Ohio, United States became a mother for the third time, she required the support and emotional assistance of others. Charlie, her nine-year-old son, was by her side throughout the labor, providing assistance not only to his mother but also to the physicians.
Hollie explains that she never requested her son to be present during labor; his presence was entirely of his own volition. She believes that boys are rarely given the opportunity to participate in such moments, but for her,
it was essential to include her sons in the birthing and breastfeeding processes, as they are entirely natural events.She readily consented when Charlie and his younger sibling asked to be present during childbirth.
She desired for them to learn and experience the birth of a child, and she did not want them to miss this educational opportunity.
