Dad’s can feel confident & Play a Major Role on this Important Day.
Hi, my name is Kenny Spring, a first time dad and huge advocate of the HypnoBirthing approach. During my partner’s pregnancy I watched her grow more confident with the concept of giving birth, her confidence in her own body’s ability, and most importantly her mental focus and general well being. The HypnoBirthing classes I attended were well structured for a first time dad and provided me with information to feel confident of the HypnoBirthing terminology, my role towards the midwives and using of a variety of calming techniques for my partner during labour. On the day of our son’s birth, my partner was very calm and confident throughout the labour.
While Jen was breathing through the early surges, I went and walked the dog, pack the car and notify the hospital. During the surges, we (myself and the dog) were simply sitting on the couch and talking about our boy’s arrival. The midwives were very easy to work with, and understood that information would be passed through me, to Jen. On the day, the ” full term ” app that Carrie suggested was very useful when it came to providing accurate information to the hospital. We will certainly utilise HypnoBirthing and yoga for our second pregnancy.
A massive thank you to Carrie from Joymamma for all your help and for making dad’s feel like they can play a major role on such an important day.
