How to best support your birthing partner with Lucy Bloom
Lucy Bloom is an award-winning leader and speaker, with an epic birth story of her own. Her book 'Cheers to Childbirth' is a birthing guide for dads and birthing partners.
This episode explores the 'dream' image of what we expect our journey to motherhood to be. From having all the 'ducks in a row' before being pregnant, to birthing and trying to live two lives as both mum and professional.
By the end of this episode we hope to have planted a seed for women and their birthing partners to learn all they can to be able to go into childbirth feeling prepared (with having a chance to work through any fears).
Lucy says; 'if your support person knows the right things to do, it will make birthing easier'.
