Hi dads-to-be ... do you think giving birth is mysterious? Well it is. Just consider how your sperm got together with your partner's egg then the cells divided at the speed of light and in 9 months give or take ... out comes a baby. We were all babies and one of them grew up to be you. It's all sort of mysterious.
However, the process of letting a baby come down, through and out of a pregnant body during the birth process is not rocket science ... in fact it's an exercise in plumbing.
What does that mean? It's simple. A big object has to come down, through and out of a container.
Your role in this is vitally important. You've got to help your pregnant partner learn how to open her body throughout the whole process. How's that possible? Simple ... you share the same body. You blink, cough and can tighten up your rectum. If you learn nothing else she can't tighten up her rectum. Why? Do that now. Does that help or hinder an object the size of a grapefruit from coming out? You've got it. You know. Now you need the skills to make certain she can remain opened.
By learning skills, feeling the difference between tension and relaxation then using your skills you demystify the journey your baby will take. Childbirth is an exercise in plumbing. Become a greater plumber's helper.
