I work with many couples and families where the birth partner feels totally unsure of how they could possibly be of help to their birthing woman. Because, remember, birth is horrendous, right? And totally out of your control, right? So there is nothing anyone can do, right?... WRONG ❌
Because when she is in the throws of contractions, perhaps surrounded by PPE & medical jargon, perhaps clinging onto you as she rides another wave, groaning and swaying and working with her body, you are her strongest anchor, keeping her grounded and keeping her safe. She needs you to have her back so that she can get on with the job at hand. So, yes, you CAN help her in so many ways, and I’m going to share them all with you in my next live talk here on Instagram.
Join me this Monday at 10am UK 🇬🇧time, or catch up on my IGTV when you can. Please don’t spend another second thinking that there is nothing you can do. If you are reading this post then you are already one step closer to realising your power as a birth partner🙏 Do not underestimate your importance ❤️#birthpartners
