Judge allows moms to ban dads from delivery
Trenton, N.J. -- According to ABCs Good Morning America, a New Jersey judge ruled expectant moms now have a legal right to keep a dad out of the delivery room if the mom does not want him present during childbirth.
In a recent case, a father-to-be wanted to be present for his daughters birth, even though he and the mother were estranged and not married.
When he went to court in hopes of obtaining the right to be present in the delivery room, the judge foiled him.
According to GMA, the judge noted the mother is not required to tell the father she is going into labor, nor is she required to allow him into the delivery room.
