I designed this training manual to help the partners of pregnant women be present and helpful during labor and delivery. The years of accumulated research and knowledge reflected in this Manual will give you the information you need to feel confidence in your preparation for the exciting day. It also prepares pregnant couples for the ways to navigate conventional medical interventions that are not always necessary, and can prevent natural childbirth. This Manual is not intended to be a medical guide. Ultimately, your health care professional must guide you. However, it helps to know what questions to ask before agreeing to a procedure.
If at all possible, it is important for you to attend the Birth Partner Training that is outlined in this Manual. The Manual is sold separately for birth partners who cannot travel to a training. However, we cover much more material in the actual training.
