How To Choose Your Birthing Partner | Blog Series

Giving birth can be one of the most painful things for a woman. No man will ever understand. Some women say it's not as bad as others say but I say each woman has a different way to handle pain. Every labour is different. You need someone who you know that will be there for you and someone who you are comfortable with.

Giving birth is not the most nicest thing too see. You are in pain. You are screaming. Your worst side may come out by swearing and screaming. Your hair up in a bobble, no make up and if you are wearing make up then it's probably sweating off. Blood everywhere after the baby is born. But holding your baby is the most amazing feeling ever.

Your birthing partner should be someone that you want to share the most amazing experience with. You need to be comfortable with this person. That person needs to handle seeing you in pain and blood.

Usually the birthing partner is the baby's Dad but in many cases for a reason the baby's dad can't/won't be there. There are other people you can choose to be your birthing partner such as a very close friend, your parents, sister etc. In my first pregnancy I chose my Dad. In my second pregnancy I chose my partner {Elliw's Dad}.

As June's Blog Series is about 'Teenage Pregnancy'/Young Mum I thought this post would be perfect. Although it applies to all ages sometimes the younger you are the more support you do need. I felt at the age of 17 {just turned} I wanted more support then than when I was 19 years old. I'm not too sure as to why I felt I needed more support but looking back I think I knew I was a bit too immature, as I was only 17 years old! I was a teenager. Not even an adult.

These are a few points to think about when choosing your birthing partner -
  • Close relationship with the birthing partner can make you feel more comfortable.
  • You must feel comfortable with the chosen person.
  • Must want that person to share the amazing experience.
  • They are reliable and will be there at any time you start labour.

How did you choose your birthing partner?

  1. My husband has been at the birth of my babies and to be honest I hadn't even thought about what I would do if he couldn't be there. It must be hard for a dad to miss the birth (for whatever reason) Thanks for linking up to #ToddlersAndTeens via mummy2monkeys
