IVF Pregnancy And Childbirth
IVF pregnancies are certainly less conventional and families who have had difficulty getting pregnant in the usual way, IVF is amazing. Once your pregnancy is confirmed and settled so there’s no expected risk of a miscarriage then you just become another pregnant woman and expectant father.
We were so focused on getting pregnant that after the IVF was successful, we had to get our heads focused on birth. This was much more of a challenge. The Pink Kit Package was a gift during a baby shower. It helped my husband and myself to focus on our birth skills which then lead us to the choices we wanted to make about birth’

Why Birthing Better skills can improve your IVF pregnancy and birth
- Birth is birth whether you’ve conceived by IVF or not … so learn how-to birth.
- Birth is birth and in all births you’ll take in and exhale your next breath … so learn to do so in a relaxed manner.
- IVF conception does not make you mentally dull … enjoy, enjoy, enjoy preparing together for childbirth after your IVF conception.
- IVF can sometimes estrange fathers from a feeling of ‘I can do this’ involvement … both of you become equally skilled with Birthing Better skills
- If you’re having a planned caesarean, these skills will still be of great benefit.
Birthing Better skills will build your confidence
Remember this. Whether you give birth in a hospital, Birth Centre or home birth, whether you have an obstetrician or midwife OR whether you have interventions or natural birth, YOU will absolutely have a positive birth.
While getting pregnant was highly medically monitored once you are pregnant, your doctor or midwife will treat you like any pregnant woman and that can come as a shock. Sure, if you have health issues then your obstetrician or midwife will do the appropriate medical assessments, monitoring, and procedures. Of course, your health issues may lead to a non-laboring Cesarean or you might labor with heaps of medical interventions. Your labor may lead to a surgical birth or you might just have a simple, straight forward birth.
Every single Birthing Better resource is chockablock full of practical skills for you and your birth partner.
