Birth Partner Tips: Advocate

advocate for your partner

Labouring women need to feel supported and safe and this can come from having a birth partner to gather information, ask questions, protect the birth space and to speak up for you is necessary.

When labour is able to flow as it needs to, women can withdraw from the room to focus only on contractions, breathing and working with their body – conversation and being alert are often not part of strong labour. One of the roles of a birth partner is to protect this.

Book a session with me if you have questions, need some additional support or preparation for birth & baby.

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
