Happy Father’s Day to all you Dad’s and Dad’s to be out there.
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 birth partner who is well informed, understands the process and has practiced breathing and relaxation with their partner during pregnancy, is a massive asset in the room and deepens their 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. ⭐️
