The Role of the Partner
All birth partners need to assume the role of “key supporter” and we empower all partners to be equally knowledgeable and passionate about the task at hand. This shared vision, combined with dedication, trust and love, increases the likelihood of a more positive birth. Labours with adequate support are shorter, less painful, and require less intervention. When a loved one takes on this awesome responsibility, birth becomes an intimate bonding experience unlike any other.
Sometimes Things Don’t Go As Planned
The intention to have a natural birth is a commendable one and is worth striving for however, no matter how well prepared, birth can be unpredictable with plenty of variations.
