SO not to be in delivery room.

Does anyone else have a hubby/bf/SO who may not be in the delivery room when you deliver? My husband is terrified of blood because he was forced to watch his mother's c-section videos as a kid. Now, if he sees blood, steps inside a hospital, or sees a medical video, he gets light headed (at one point he almost passed out from accidentally injuring his hand while doing some construction work). He's told me that he is going to man up and be there at the delivery room. He's come to various OBGYN appointments with me too. But, I am worried that he is going to pass out during the delivery, or feel sick/queasy thinking about the baby. I dislike it when people tell me that he needs to just "be a man," because I think that is very insensitive. Anyone else have this issue?
