It seems that no one needs to say that the presence of a man in childbirth has a positive effect on the process: the birth is faster and easier. The historical aspect has also been mentioned more than once that this tradition is glorious, ancient and has been practiced by our ancestors for many years. Therefore, I want to give TK, so to speak, a kind of summary of what needs to be done or not done during joint labor. In other words, why is dad there?
Immediately make a reservation – I am an ardent fan of joint childbirth. But – only during the bouts. Father circumcision of the umbilical cord, video filming and other pranks – for me personally, from the category of horror films. And here I agree in the majority: if a man is not a doctor, he has nothing to do there. They will do without it.
But in fights a man is needed! And this is why:
It’s no secret that in medicine we often have people who are far from understanding heartiness and caring for a woman in labor. Mom, experiencing contractions, somewhat not to communicate with boorish midwives and indifferent doctors. But the man is given a great opportunity to grow up like a lion and protect offspring. The presence of a person independent of them very much spurs the above-mentioned Aesculapius to an adequate attitude towards almost mommy. And the words are monitored and inspected on time.
Oddly enough, but the relatives, who are sitting in different parts of the country, having learned what started, begin an SMS attack on the woman in labor: so what?, Well, how are you? This is hell, believe me: there is a fight, and even the phone rattles endlessly! And it is impossible not to answer – grandmothers like needles, grandfathers drink Corvalol.
Dancing is a great pain reliever! But it is easier to dance, leaning on the strong shoulder of a loved one. And he can wear a dropper for mom, give water, tell a joke and stuff, stuff, stuff! In addition, the campaign time runs more fun.
Did I persuade you? Then here is a small list of tricks:
- Childbirth is a long matter. Let dad grab a couple of sandwiches.
- Water: mineral water with lemon juice will help both mom and dad. But it is better for mother not to drink, but to dissolve pieces of ice or small caramels: this way you can get rid of dry mouth, while not being afraid to goof during the attempts.
- Just grab a fat hygienic lipstick: lips are very dry.
- Bring a small tape recorder or cell phone with your favorite music: this will help pass the time and set it up for positive.
- Dad is advised to bring something from sleep. Honestly, it was very disappointing to hear from a loved one: I was tired, I would sleep a little, okay? It’s time to go to the pharmacy and buy the right product – that’s all! The main thing – to comply with the dose and do not forget to read the instructions.
That seems to be all for now.
Why am I so much in favor of joint labor? Cute our fathers – the animals of a slightly different breed. However, this is a completely different story.
