Subject:  child birth is a great experience
Felt so nice to read this article. I just remember the time when my wife, Sania, gave birth to our daughter, Sumitra. I was more anxious that her. The due date was coming near and I was feeling damn nervous. Then I my friend told me about this class where they teach new dads about supporting their partners during labour and even after child birth. I joined that class immediately and that solved half of my problem. Before labour could start I discuss a plan about how we are going to make the birthing experience comfy. We talked about breathing and contractions. We discussed about comfortable positions. My friend told me to carry extra pillows in the labour room if possible. Watching my wife giving birth to out bundle of joy was the best experience of my life.

Subject:  partner can feel nervous
Guys become intensively emotional during all the birthing experience. My husband was so nervous during the birth of our first child that he was not able to count my breathing. Partner’s presence during labour offers a great comfort and encouragement. My husband was terrified to see me in pain but he remained there constantly and tried his best to calm me down. I would like to suggest to all knew mothers than they should seek daula to assist the child birth if possible. You partner will be your main support but daula or midwife will make delivering a baby much easier. Mothers need less medical interventions when they take help of daula. I did the same during my second pregnancy.

Subject:  my husband was my great support
My husband was very supportive during my labour period. He was there beside me holding my hand and encouraging me silently. The first few days at home when I my initial labour started he gave all support possible. He talked with the hospital staff and organized a soft music to play while I deliver a baby. I was very anxious as I am experiencing the labour for the first time. He kept telling me that he loves me and he is very excited about having a baby. I could not have done this without his support and love. Now we are planning for our second child. Now he says that he knows well how to help me in the labour room. I am so glad to have a supportive and a loving husband.

Good thing is we don have to go anywhere or to fix an appointment. we take classes on our time at our convenien... - A Dad [View Message]
RE:Good Gyne in North Delhi
Hey rachna i am confused as in why you want to meet a gynae for your son you should instead go for an paediatrician. And gynae is for girls and women so i dont think he/she might be able to help out your son on medical issues.... - Richa [View Message]
