Birthing Partners

Most of the birthing companions who attend my classes think either

" I am not worried about the birth, but I want to support her and have no idea what to do" or

" Aaargh! She’s pregnant and I have no idea what to expect or do on the day!"

Generally, birth companions - whether they are the baby's dad, a partner, friend or relative - do not know what a 'good' birth looks like, how the mum is likely to react to the different stages of labour and what on earth they should be doing at any point in the proceedings.

Does this sound like you?  Not to worry, as this reaction is very common because many people have not been involved in good birth experiences … unless they have used the HypnoBirthing® Mongan Method and are now recommending the course to you!

Firstly, by making the decision to come along to the course with her you are demonstrating to the mum that you are there for her.  The information you will learn and take away with you is more than you will receive at hospital appointments and traditional ante-natal classes.

Secondly, when you come along to the course it's your choice whether you fully participate or just soak up the calm atmosphere. 

Fathers and birthing partners say one of the most valuable skills they learn is the ability and confidence to talk to medical people and respectfully ask questions to understand the options as the pregnancy, labour and birth progress.  This can make a huge difference to the experience of mum and baby.

Other advantages coming to my classes include:

  • It will enhance your relationship as you demonstrate your support during this life-changing experience.
  • The relaxation and breathing exercises will bring a calm space to your relationship allowing you to plan and prepare for the birth with more ease. No second guessing on the day – both of you will know what your preferences are.
  • If you choose to practice the techniques with the mum you will feel the benefits through all aspects of your life.
  • You will be given a prompt sheet which will help to remind you about the different stages of labour and what you can be doing every step of the way.
  • You will notice the mum relaxing into her pregnancy as she practises the simple techniques.  One dad commented during a class that his wife was a changed person for taking the classes (for the better!).  He was a happy man.
  • You will see that birth can be positive and beautiful; a truly special and unique experience for you, the mum and baby.
  • You will learn how to bond with your unborn baby.  You can start your relationship now with the little one in the womb.  This is truly incredible and you will see the recognition in the baby’s eyes when they are in your arms.
