Who did you have are your birthing partner? If you could would you change that person?
I will be having Mark. I trust him 100% and I know he will do a fantastic job. I would love to have my mum there for support as I know that it would be useful to have someone who has gone through the experience of childbirth and come out the other side but as she lives over 2 hours away this isn't practical.
I am very much looking forward to having Mark support me and I think it will be an amazing and special experience for us both. I do think labour and birth is something quite personal so i'm glad in a way that it will just be us two and we will welcome baby girl into this world as a family unit.
The thing i'm not looking forward too is if he just stands there like a goon and has no idea what to do or how to help. We have gone over the birth plan and everything we want to happen in an ideal world but I am still thinking about getting him to do a little research into how to be the best birthing partner.
So... any tips for dads to be in the delivery room?
