‘Every birth is different, but every birth is BIRTH’
There is surely nothing more wondrous, profound and awe-inspiring than the birth of a baby! Every birth is different and sharing and reading birth stories – whether from the point of view of mum or dad / partner – can be hugely beneficial for all kinds of reasons:
- They help us reflect on and process our own feelings, experiences, beliefs, judgements, wishes.
- They help us understand better how births can unfold, and how each is unique.
- They help reassure us that sometimes things don’t go as planned, but that we nevertheless find our way through.
