Birth – from a Dad’s perspective!

We love hearing from our Calmbirth dads. Here, Calmbirth dad Ben, shares with us his endearing baby boy’s birth story. His memories of the day will have you laughing and crying all at the same time, as it is filled with much emotion, love and drama. At this point I was amazed at how primitive it became. Everything seemed so natural, so normal, but incredibly special at the same time. I did my best to support her; giving water, rubbing her back and body, applying pressure, encouraging her but being careful to not say too much.

The Birth of ‘Mighty’ Barnaby

Throughout our pregnancy our baby was small, in the 3rd percentile, needing to be monitored closely. I was trying to stay calm but had to be open that the baby may have to come early if anything changed – meditating and trying to trust this body. Hoping for a small and mighty little one.

Welcome to the world Henley Croft 

“I believe I largely owe my positive birth experience to Calmbirth. Most importantly it gave both my partner and I a complete understanding of the process and I felt I was aware of what and why things were happening as they happened. The course filled us with knowledge and from the moment I left the class that weekend, I went from being anxious about giving birth to excited!”

Introducing Elliott Steven

Elliott Steven arrived on the 21st September 2019 after a long but relatively uneventful labour that went for 3 days.  “I felt in control and calm for the majority of the time. I had faith in my body and as though I knew what was happening thanks to Calmbirth. Lee was able to support me with massage etc and walked the corridors with me trying to get things moving. Thanks to Calmbirth he also knew what was happening and had the tools to support me.”
