Day #2: The Birth Partner

This was also one of the first books I read, and I was sooo impressed. I was still learning about the basics of birth, so every page was amazing.

The best part of this book is it is written for the partner, not the laboring woman. Whether that be a sister, a doula, or a husband or life partner, it is written for all of them.

The one thing that hit me with this book is it always talks about if a woman is well supported, she will not fear the birth process and she will be able to surrender to it. Since starting the birth journey, this has stuck with me through it all!

Women have to be supported, and the best way for that to happen is to have someone there with them prepared in the birth process as well so they can be there completely for the laboring woman.

I would tell everyone to read and buy this book! It is fantastic at how it shows a partner to help during labor and also talks in depth about doulas and how they can help a husband and wife without getting in the way.

It has amazing insights into birth, and I would definitely check it out!!
