How Partners Can Help During Labor and Delivery


Dads are very involved. We like for partners
to come to visits, regular prenatal visits with the moms and ask questions and really
be a part of the care cause it’s their child as well. And we really like for them to be
involved during the labor and birth process, so we are pretty good at helping dads figure
out a support role if they seem like they’re not quite sure what to do, how they can support
their partner during labor and birth. Emotional support is probably the biggest, just being
there through each contraction and giving encouragement, but also physical support like
massage or rubbing their back or holding the shower head in the shower on mom’s belly while
she has contractions.
