Fathers’ Birth Fundamentals

Are you worried about how you can support your partner during labour?

Partner’s are often missed out of their own birth preparation. It is assumed that father’s will be at the birth but often this can lead to many issues.

The rates of Post partum depression in fathers’ is increasing and a lot, I believe, is the lack of adequate birth preparation specifically designed with fathers’ in mind.

Giving you space to process your feelings about birth, learn how you can help during birth including skills for coping techniques in labour (for you and your birthing partner)and how you can advocate for your partner during birth. Research shows that if a woman feels supported by a calm and confident partner it will help towards a more positive birth experience.

This workshop is for couples to attend to help the father learn how he can support his partner at the birth.
