‘I am 100% certain that without the knowledge of The Pink Kit we would have had a very different birthing experience. If you are a male and extremely lucky in life, you not only get to witness the birth of your child but also actively take part in that birth. I would only have cut the cord without the knowledge of The Pink Kit. Instead I worked through each contraction, painful as they were. Being with my wife through her pain and knowing that what we did together made each contraction more manageable, made me feel so GOOD. You have to go through the pain together. It’s important’.
At my first wife’s two births, I was expected to be there and do my part. I sat at the head of her bed and held her hand. It was so hard to watch her and not know what to do. After our divorce, I never wanted to get another woman pregnant, that’s how terrible I felt. But I love my second wife ( her first baby) and loved that we were pregnant. I decided to get involved and we spent the time and did the work. We had an absolutely amazing birth, I’m a changed man. Absolutely every man who is going to be a father must help his wife for the last 8-12 weeks of pregnancy. The pay off is so big, don’t miss it.’
Men who have not felt good about previous births are healed by their involvement when they have taken the time to prepare with their partners for birth. Give men tools and they shine.(NOTE: Wintergreen)
‘I am writing to you tonight to share information with you on two totally different births. First birth was in a hospital; Labor was 30 hours long resulting in a 7lb 10oz. Baby boy. Went home after one week. Second birth was at home. 5 hours active labor, boy 8lb 10oz. Aided with the knowledge we obtained from the pink kit classes and the help from an extremely conscientious midwife. My wife and I were up to class number 3 (ante natal class at the hospital) when I was talking to a mate at work that had just had a baby girl 2 weeks previously. He asked me if I had heard of the Pink Kit. Which I had not. He then told me how he had learned how to take an active role in the birth of his child. And he beamed when he spoke of how he was able to help. We had recently found the perfect midwife and lo and behold she also mentioned the Pink Kit! So we went along to classes that are being taught in our local area.
I was amazed at how much we did not know about what was happening to my wife’s body and how we could prepare for the birth of our child together. I felt that with this birth I, as a man, could really help my wife with the birth of our child. But like all good things it takes time and we spent many an evening with the video and book and tape that comes with the kit.
At birth time my wife and I worked as a team using the hip lifts and sit spread to maximize the birthing canall and in 5 long painful hours our baby boy was born. No pain relief was given. And I found that the tremendous pain that my wife went through brought us closer together, because I had a small understanding of what she was going through and most of all I could help and she allowed me to help. I am 100% certain that without the knowledge of the Pink Kit we would have had a very different birthing experience. Men can be of immense help in birth, when they have knowledge. This knowledge can be found in easy-to-understand non-medical terms. If you are male and are extremely lucky in life, you not only get to witness the birth of your child but also actively take part in that birth. I would have only cut the cord without the knowledge of the PINK KIT’.
