Birth Parnter

Updated: Sep 26, 2019

Who’s your birth partner? He was mine, the man I married 🕍 Choosing a birth partner is crucial. For me, my husband provided continuity in a way that no one else could. I trust him and he gives me comfort. 💙⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know in a male birthing partner, his oxytocin levels will rise and his testosterone levels will fall to accommodate pregnancy and childbirth. 💫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When your partner is your loved one, this will help generate and maintain oxytocin levels in the labouring Mum even by a gentle touch, even just by their presence. The mother feels safe and once the baby is born it is that first meeting that the family is born. 👨‍👩‍👧⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A father who is well informed, who understands the process, who may have practised breathing and relaxation with his partner during pregnancy, is a massive asset in the room and deepens his relationship with the child when he/she is born. 📚⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take my advise and choose your birth partner wisely. It all feeds into a positive birth experience. ⭐️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
