One of the most frequent questions we get from partners is, “Do you replace me?” The short answer is no. Our job is to work WITH you, side by side, as your family welcomes an extra tiny human into the world.
When a partner is involved, we focus on partner involvement, and that can look different for everyone. That can mean that we team up for a double hip squeeze, or take turns grabbing ice chips. It can also look like us standing next to you and providing guidance while you massage your partner’s back during a contraction. It can look however you want it to look.
We’ve had partners that did all the hands on stuff while we made recommendations from the other side of the bed. We’ve had partners who chose to wait out of the room during labor and we did all of the hands on stuff. We’ve mostly had a mix of in-between, with a lot of teamwork. Whatever works best for the both of you is our preference.
This is the person you love and a sweet little baby that will forever change your life. We want this to be a wonderful experience for the both of you. We work together to accomplish that.
