Having a baby is incredibly exciting, and also more than a little terrifying. We’ve all heard our share of birth stories, and it’s difficult not to let your imagination get the best of you. You’ve probably spent a great deal of time thinking about labor, your ideal birth experience, whether you want a doula or midwife or both, whether you want a natural birth or not, and how the whole scenario will unfold.
A lot of people ask me ‘what do you need for a home birth’ and I can say from experience – hardly anything. I mean, I could write you a list 100 items long, but you don’t really ‘need’ any of it. A lot of things are ‘nice to have’ like a personalized birth mat, or a birth pool, or delicious snacks, or heat packs or Swiss balls.
“Although continuous support can also be offered by birth partners, midwives, nurses, or even some physicians, research has shown that with some outcomes, doulas have a stronger effect than other types of support persons. As such, doulas should be viewed by both parents and providers as a valuable, evidence-based member of the birth care team”.
When I was pregnant with my daughter I wanted to know how my husband could help me along - with both the pregnancy and the labor as well as what to expect once baby was born. I didn't know much myself except that I'd probably need all the support I could get. So here's a list I compiled of all those things that help Dads prepare for baby! #Baby #Birth #Newborn
