Why do you keep asking these questions? Are you a guy who thinks it's unfair that the mother gets the attention?
She has just fine through a MAJOR traumatic event which is both physically and mentally exhausting. The two most important things in that day are the baby and mother. Everyone else comes after that. It's really really simple to understand.4

It is the father's day too its just that the mother has a lot of physical and emotional trauma to go through during the labour, but its not the parents day its mainly the child's birthday and as any mother will tell you the child is the most important thing on that day.0
Because it is the woman who has carried this child for the past nine months, has experienced it and felt it growing inside her, and has now ultimately given birth and brought it into the world.
A mothers bond to her baby will always be stronger than that of the father.2

Dear god. Not you again.
A father cannot experience the birth of a child in the same way because of simple biology. Some people believe that the mother-child bond is the strongest parental bond because the child was literally carried inside the mother for almost a year, and then she had to go through hell to deliver that child. The father has no such thing. He merely contributed a little DNA to get the process started. Humans are fairly unique in that the father is expected to stick around. That doesn't happen for a lot of other animals.
So while the birth of a child is going to be a huge moment for everyone involved, the mother has the most work. She gets to be the star of the day because she is the one pushing a watermelon out of a hole the size of a quarter.0

All hail fathers who had a moment of hopefully passion and dropped in some sperm that helped create life, but a father's job doesn't begin in earnest until he has actually had to do something to take care of that child. A mother has had to grow this thing inside her for 9 terrifying months with all this pressure to make sure she is healthy so teh baby is healthy with so many thinks that could go wrong, and then endure 8, 10, 20 hours, 2-3 days of labor, to bring a child onto planet earth. Any decent human being can recognize that perhaps after this most stressful and physically taxing 9 months and most painful birth has gone down, that it's not the best idea... it's not even a half-way decent idea, for a father to stand up and start taking massive credit for everything he has done. It IS the mother's day. Holding the future mother's hand in labor is something any decent future father should do, but it doesn't deserve a plaque on the wall. I mean, I've never run into a dad who was like, gee I wish the birth of my child had been more about me, and the ones that have are no longer with us, lol.1
