I’m a nurse and more dads miss the birth of their baby than you think – their excuses are unbelievable | The Sun

THERE are a few reasons why you might miss the birth of your baby that might be excused, if you're lucky.

But for most doting dads little could stand in the way of them being present for the big day.

However, according to Anna, who is a labour and delivery nurse, dads miss the birth of their little ones all the time and some of the reasons they give are so ridiculous.

She shared some of the completely "absurd" reasons on TikTok leaving viewers stunned and baffled.

“These are in no particular order because they’re all absurd if you ask me,” Anna said before telling eager viewers, and maybe a few dads looking for an excuse of their own.

“Number one, He went to go get food,” the nurse quipped, “I had a patient, and I thought she was going to [give birth] fast.

The excuses didn't get any better from there, the second dad missed the birth of his child all because he put his phone on silent – no, really.

Anna said: "His wife was gracious enough to let him stay home while she laboured a little bit, but he wanted to get a good nap in so put his phone on silent."
