Part of Daisy is busting the myth that you have to lie back on a bed, legs in the air, while someone delivers your baby. Here are just a few wonderful Active Birth positions you can be in through your labour. Move, sway, utilise gravity, dance your baby into the world!! Week 4 of a Daisy Birthing term is all about Mum's position in labour and the impact that can have on the labour journey and of course the same goes for baby and their positions!
And look how many of these positions use the birth partner as a physical support.
It was reported this week that 12% of Dads miss the birth of their child and a high portion of that percent was out of choice because they were scared of birth. It's no secret that we hear a lot of horror stories when it comes to birth but the birth partners role is just as important for a calm, positive birth experience. To be a physical support, to keep away stress triggers so Mum's natural pain relief hormone can be released, to be their voice when Mum is focused on her body and contractions and of course be that emotional support as well.
If you'd like to find out more and hear your antenatal education together and hopefully dispel some of those fears surrounding birth for both Mum and birth partner so you can both feel more in control and confident then message me for more details about the Active birth couples workshop - where your birth partner will learn massage techniques to help ease your labour journey!
