Study: More Men Opting To Be In Room When Wife Conceives Baby

According to a study published this week in the American Journal Of Obstetrics And Gynecology, an increasing number of men are choosing to be physically present while conceiving a child with their wives or partners.

“What we’re seeing is a much greater openness by men to play an active role on the day of conception,” said Dr. Renee Price of the University of Pennsylvania, who co-authored the study. “They feel it’s important to show their support during that special time when their sperm is released to fertilize the egg, and they want to be right by the woman’s side every step of the way.”
