The weeks leading up to the birth of you baby are filled with to do lists and processing your emotions about labour and the change your life is about take. As women, we are supported through this process by other women and our loving partners. However, the partners are often left out of this process as they are the rocks, the foundation that hold us together. I hear the same message coming from most men, they are terrified they won’t be able to help their partners with the pains of labour. They are scared because they feel its their role in life to shield and protect us, but in labour they are uncertain how to be effective.
