High expectations with no preparation.
Our parents generations kept Dad's out of the birthing rooms.
Hundreds of years of our ancestors had women in the villages supporting other women through childbirth.
Until the last 2o years or so, it wasn't the norm to have the expectation that our husbands/partners would not only attend the birth, but also play an important role.
We see first hand how much we need a birth support person who is educated and confident. Not who is overwhelmed and terrified of the process.
When you're labouring you need to remain in your primal brain. The non thinking area. You are doing, and being, but not making decisions.
The birth partner has a unique role of advocacy, support, and encouragement.
Birth can be scary, loud, boring, stressful, and intense.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to learn about pregnancy, birth and postpartum so you can feel prepared to be the partner she NEEDS you to be.
You can come out of your birth closer, more in love, and a much stronger team than you were before.
