Dads - keep your cool during birth!

Several of the health professionals we spent time with that crazy day our baby was born commented on how calm Emma and I were, and how much staying calm can help the birth.

I’d like to think that a lot of this calm comes from how Emma and I are as a couple, but kudos also needs to be given to the wonderful National Childbirh Trust (NCT) classes we attended.

Guys - if you don’t want to be that panicky fella in the labour ward telling anyone who’ll listen that you feel so helpless and have no idea what’s going on then do yourself (and your girl!) a favour and get clued up; it’ll make a huge positive difference not only to how confident you feel during the experience, but also how you’ll feel about the birth when you look back on it.
