Introduction: These days fathers are included in family life actively. Part of this is attendance at childbirth of their child. For better father’s experience of childbirth is very important that father is appropriately prepared for labour and childbirth. During childbirth fathers play too many times just passive role, and they are not active included to childbirth. After all fathers says that childbirth is the most beautiful experience in their life. Objective: The aim of diploma work was present the role of fathers during these days, how they understand the transition to fatherhood and to find out what are the reasons for their attendance at childbirth, which feelings they felt during childbirth and how their relationship with midwife was. Methods: Firstly we used a descriptive method review of Slovenian and foreign literature. All literature was acquired with the help of the union catalogue database COBISS and from internet-based databases DiKUL, Cochrane Library, Medline, Midwifery Research, PubMed, ScienceDirect and Wiley Online Library. We also used some books and other references about our topic. In the second part of diploma work qualitative research was applied. Semi-structured interviews were carried out. The collected results were analysed with a qualitative content analysis with the help of open coding and categorising. Then they were compared and corroborated with founding from other executed research. Results: In the research were include five fathers who have had at least two birth experiences of their children, between years 2013-2017. The birth of their child was the most beautiful moment of their life. Fathers told us that childbirth was positive but stressful experience. The attendance at birth was their own desire. They experienced many different intensive feelings. Some of father were included more active, some of them were more passive and they didn't play active role during childbirth. Discussion and conclusion: Fathers to be want to be present equivalent part of the pair who expect baby. They want that midwife and other health care professionals see and hear them the same like their partner. If the midwife is respectful to them and listen to their wishes, fathers feel safer, accepted, desired and more self-confidently. All of those feelings can father pass on to woman. If father is enough prepared for the childbirth with relevant information and thought that childbirth is normal but significant life event then it can lead to unforgettably experience of childbirth and transition to parenthood for both parent.
