Your birth and birth coaching skills will WOW your obstetrician for sure.
Here’s the truth. Your Obstetrician will not care if you are using skills to cope or look overwhelmed. It’s your job to become skilled to birth your baby. You’re doing the activity of giving birth. Skills = pride.
Become skilled for a VBAC. From 24 weeks onward, have OB mark in notes which skill you’ve learned. Ask OB/staff to praise you in labor when you’re coping well and encourage you to use your skills.
Only you will do the activity of birthing your baby. That’s your job. You need skills. Families developed Birthing Better to have skills. We always WOWED our OB, staff and midwives.
