One for your birth partner

I know I sound like a broken record but your breathing technique is key when in labour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Birth partners, during labour one of the key things to be looking out for is if there is any change in her breathing patterns. This can indicate a degree of anxiety, tension or fear, all of things that can make labour more uncomfortable. When this happens, because it usually will at some point, one of the quickest and most effective ways to help her relax is to slow down and exaggerate your own breathing pattern so that she will naturally get back in sync with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You both got this 😘⠀
