“Birthing Better teaches that birth is something you do, not just something that happens to you. With that realization comes the ability to learn the skills needed for an easier and more controlled birth. I could feel myself open on each inhale and soften inside on each exhale. ”
“Birthing Better communication skills are the best. We always had issues about understanding one another. We used the non-verbal skills very successfully throughout our 3 children’s births. No, we couldn’t read each others minds but we certainly found the skills easy to use.’
“After 5 births, you’d think I knew how to do it. I dreaded them and hated each birth. My husband was useless and devastated. After learning the touch skills, we just blossomed. He’d put his hand on some part of my body during birth and I’d just soften under his touch.”
