Are You Responsible For Getting Women Through Labor?
No you are not! Yet too many mothers-to-be and fathers-to-be place unrealistic expectations on midwives.
Independent midwives do a great job, have a tough job, and are too exhausted!
As an independent midwife, whether a nurse midwife, CNM, direct entry midwife, or lay midwife, you know that being at long, tiring births just takes it out of you.

Check out the Birthing Better Pink Kit Childbirth Skills.
Skilled expectant parents have to support YOU as an independent midwife. It's about time.
What an amazing thought; all pregnant women KNOWING how to give birth and every father-to-be/partner, friend or relative knowing how to be a great birth coach. This can happen with expectant parents who don't use your service in both your practice and local area.
'I'm not going back. My clients will be Pink Kit families AND they will teach themselves how to birth!'

Birth Plans and an over abundance of information has NOT led to a decrease in medical birth.
In New Zealand where 85% of expectant parents have their own continuity of care midwife, the cesarean rate has more than doubled. This just shows that midwifery alone is not the answer to the horrible childbirth trends. Look at the statistics.
Independent midwives must expect pregnant couples to write a 2nd Birth Plan. What would be in this second one? Simple ... pregnant couples need to tell you how they are preparing their pregnant body to become a birthing body and what skills you'll see them use!
As an independent midwife (CNM, Direct Entry midwife, Lay midwife) you can lead the way.
Childbirth skills need to become the new way to a 'beautiful birth' no matter where families give birth with or without an independent midwife. The Birthing Better Pink Kit Package contains childbirth skills, childbirth skills and Childbirth Skills.
Only a birthing woman can control her breathing. As an independent midwife it's too tiring to breathe with her for hours. Only a birthing woman can control her ability to relax. Pregnant women need to learn how to do that and have her birth skills to work through childbirth pain.
In reality ... the best birth coach for the woman in labor will always be her husband, partner or other well known person AND they need the birth coaching skills.
Expectant parents who use you as their independent midwife whether you're a nurse midwife, CNM, direct entry or lay midwife MUST help you! It's not fair for them to rely on you to get them through their birth.
Imagine how great families will feel if you sell or rent to them with The Pink Kit Package and they are able to achieve the above successes with your midwifery skills.
Expectant parents will get the absolutely most incredible childbirth resource they'll ever find anywhere … guaranteed! And as a Pink Kit Distributor you will be responsible for heading them down the right path.
