What Do You Know About Birth Breathing?

The fathers and mothers who developed Birthing Better skills in the US in the early 1970s focused heaps on developing good birth breathing skills.

Why? No Birthing Better mother wants to ‘suffer’ in their home birth. We want to cope, manage, work through, deal with, handle, stay on top of and feel in control and honestly, we didn’t just trust our ‘instinct’.

In fact, many of us had already given birth at home and knew we had to and wanted to improve our birth breathing.

Fathers really wanted to help their birthing partner in their home birth and not just dangle on the outside of the woman’s circle that might include their midwife and perhaps doula.

As fathers, we going to be in our baby’s life so we saw it and see it as our obligation to be a very skilled birth-coach.
