The scene portrayed Ricky prancing around the waiting room with face paint and a wig, looking completely alien.

Judith Walzer Leavitt traces men’s migration from birth’s periphery to a central role in childbirth. Mid-20th century nuclear family togetherness shaped men’s increasing involvement in childbirth.

Using fathers' first-hand accounts from letters, journals, and personal interviews along with hospital records and medical literature, Judith Walzer Leavitt offers a new perspective on the changing role of expectant fathers from the 1940s to the 1980s. She shows how, as men moved first from the hospital waiting room to the labor room in the 1960s, and then on to the delivery and birthing rooms in the 1970s and 1980s, they became progressively more involved in the birth experience and their influence over events expanded. With careful attention to power and privilege, Leavitt charts not only the increasing involvement of fathers, but also medical inequalities, the impact of race and class, and the evolution of hospital policies. Illustrated with more than seventy images from TV, films, and magazines, this book provides important new insights into childbirth in modern America, even as it reminds readers of their own experiences.
Reviews about Make Room for Daddy: The Journey from Waiting Room to Birthing Room (3):
Doukree
It was a good and informative book, and provided a thorough review of a topic that not many people may know about. I did find it repetitive, with each chapter using several anecdotes that were nearly identical and did not add to the content beyond the first anecdote. Despite the description of the book on line, there really were not a lot of pop culture references and it wasn't as lighthearted as I thought it would be. Still a good read, and may help a father to be appreciate how far things have come.

I just read this book, and it is really interesting! It's all about how fathers used to be excluded from being with their wives when they labored and when they delivered babies, and how they are now welcomed into the delivery room. It's full of heartfelt stories from the men themselves and has lots of pictures. It follows how TV, cartoons, and movies characterized expectant fathers as bumbling idiots who did nothing but smoke cigarettes and pace the floor. One section tells about the disturbing practice of men preferring male babies rather than girls and how open they were about their preferences. The book is well-documented for those who care about such things. The author writes well and has made it accessible to all. "Make Room for Daddy" will be of interest to all new parents - men and women -- or those thinking about becoming parents. A good read, highly recommended.

Make Room for Daddy: The Journey from Waiting Room to Birthing Room

It's amazing that no one has previously traced this history of the role of fathers in childbirth. Filled with fascinating anecdotes from and about famous (I Love Lucy's husband Desi Arnaz, Donald Sutherland, Danny Thomas) and not-famous fathers, the book is a delightful read but also serious history. A father-loving but critical feminist interpretation. AND it makes the perfect gift for expectant parents.
