Lol yeah, good old paternalism. We've been brainwashed to believe labour/childbirth is a medical process, when it isn't (except obviously in emergency, high risk, or other complicated cases). It's kind of insane when you think about it.

I highly recommend you both read the book Hypnobirthing. Staying at home shouldn't change labour at all, if you can both stay calm, focused, in the zone, and in sync with her body. I wanted a natural birth but never intended to do it at home;however, I DID labour mostly at home. By the time I got to the hospital I was already 5cm dilated and our baby came 6 hours later (I immediately asked for a morphine + gravol shot and had no more drugs the rest of my labour. I too opted for gas at the end but wasn't sucking on that tube right and don't think I got any. Helped with my breathing though! Lol). Home is way more comfortable anyway, you both will be much more relaxed in your own zone.

Our bodies are literally made for giving birth,just have to keep the mind aligned with with the process, while also relinquishing control in a way. Read that book, seriously. You'll see what I mean.

Your job will be to help keep her focused, to not spin out of control, to help her breathe through the contractions. There is an awesome move our doula showed my husband, where he put his forearms on my hips and compressed them, thereby fanning them open during contractions. Amazing, really helped keep me comfortable. She can also get in a hot bath or shower. I was in and out of the hot shower a few times during my labour. Oh and btw, put some garbage bags or old sheets down on the floors. You're welcome.

One very simple and KEY nugget you both can think of throughout labour is, with each contraction you are that much closer to meeting your baby! Really helps to keep things in perspective, especially at peak labour, which is transition phase.


Oh boy I'm so excited for you!! You guys'll be great, I know it!


She's been watching some videos on hypnobirthing for a few months. One of the first things she said after she got off the phone was that she needs to practice it more. I'll tell her about the book, thanks. She's not so stressed about staying at home and enduring more of the pain here; I get to be with her. She's worried about not having me around during the whole process. It's sweet but also sad. She hates the thought of me leaving her after the birth, but I told her to think about how happy she'll feel that he's there to keep her company and healthy. I understand the hospital's concerns and why they're doing it. Sucks, but what can you do. Gotta focus on the positives.

Thanks for all the other advice; it's reassuring. Appreciate the kind words

Yeah that sucks for both of you. But, like you said, take solace in the fact you'll all be together at the end of it! Ahhhh sooo exciting!

A friend in London just gave birth this weekend, one month prematurely. Went to some maternal birthing-only hospital or something? Not sure of the name, but she said it was very pleasant. Only 5 hours in labour

I assume that would be active labour, not the ENTIRE labour (I would be surprised at calling it pleasant if the whole thing was that quick, but hey - everyone's experience is different!). But yes, only 5 hours is fantastic. Labour is basically the most intense endurance workout of one's life. I remember thinking to myself very close to the end, "I just want to take a nap, wahh!"
