Should children witness child birth?

Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.

The house was very, very dark, so the paramedic asked Kathleen, a 3-year-old girl, to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby.
Very diligently Kathleen did as she was asked. Her mother Heidi pushed and pushed, and after a little while Connor was born.

The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. Connor began to cry.

The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-year-old what she thought about what she had just witnessed.

Kathleen quickly responded, "He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place. Smack his ass again."

nope, I know some families have their children in the birthing suite but no I don't believe they should be there, we had arranged babysitters during the second birth, and for some period fell through and so during the intial stages the kids were with me and simply because I couldn't sit still and I looked to be in discomfort it distressed the children we explained what was happening but the children were still worried one of them was 7 at the time, I wouldn't advise it for any child under 15 and that's from personnal experience
