Pregnant mum

When I'm being put under general anaesthetic, why does my partner have to leave the operating theatre?

The reasoning is a partner should only be in the room to calm the mother down and bring her comfort. While under general anesthetic the mother wouldn't be conscious so a partner's presence wouldn't be beneficial to the wellbeing of the mother and would more like be in the way of doctors.
