Is it wrong to ask a husband to stay home for wife after c-section?

I am pregnant & scheduled to have a c-section next Monday. Is it wrong to ask my husband to stay home with me for two weeks? He said no one has ever asked him to stay home before & I am the first. We both have a job but I don’t know why he is being that way. I asked him and he said he can’t afford to stay.
