Get Snap Happy
During labor, your partner probably won't be focused on starting a scrapbook -- but for the rest of her life, she'll cherish any moments you capture on film. "When my wife saw the photos of our son's birth, she discovered things she had either forgotten or been too emotional to remember," says Gulu Gambhir, of Annandale, Virginia. If you have a video camera, discuss ahead of time what should be caught on tape. (Not all women want a camera directed between their legs.) Above all, make sure your efforts aren't disruptive to the doctor and nurses -- or your wife.
