Birth is the beginning of life; the beginning of mothering, and of fathering. We all deserve a good beginning. –Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering- Sarah J. Buckley, MD
Birth is the most empowering and joyful experience a woman can have. While she is pregnant her body is growing and nurturing a new life and she is starting along the path of motherhood. Throughout pregnancy, fathers and partners also learn how to be supportive, loving and nurturing. As both learn about the process of labor, they become intimately involved in their unborn baby’s well being and develop a strong relationship with their baby and each other.
It takes time to grow a new life. It takes time to be comfortable with the idea of becoming a parent. Luckily, nature has given us that time to get ready, to learn, to feel confident. Learning about the natural process and what a woman’s body is designed for, can help couples have a rewarding experience and allow them to welcome this new life into a safe, calm and nurturing environment.
