By Tania Kurd Mirza:
She is in childbirth, she is in so much pain, she feels like she is going to die…but the pain is joyful pain, she is giving birth to her child…yet why is her husband not allowed to be with her?
In Kurdistan, hospital employees do not allow husbands to stay with their wives during childbirth, but why not – for what reason is this not allowed? There is no impediment to prevent a man from being in the same room as his wife as she gives birth, not in State law or Sharia law (1). If it is a matter of ethics then how cruel these are; there is nothing worse than giving birth to your child alone.
