When the big day arrives, feeling well-informed and prepared for your baby’s arrival is going to be key for reducing anxiety, uncertainty, and expanding your tool kit of ways to cope with your labor. If you are like most women, I imagine that you are nodding yes and agree with these sentiments. Now, let’s take those ideas and think about your partner for a moment, if he is just as prepared mentally, logistically, and full of knowledge about what to say, what he can do, and how he can best support you, don’t you agree that your labor will be that less daunting? I know you will feel more confident knowing that he too has prepared in every way possible to be your biggest advocate.

Supporting Her Review
Supporting Her is a birth class that does exactly that! This class was designed by childbirth educators and doulas, Kathleen Leathers and Alice Turner. They have finally provided the realm of childbirth classes with a class that is geared completely towards dad. The videos are full of action items, specific advice, scenarios, and real-life stories from dads who have been through this. Your husband will definitely be ready to support you, advocate for you, and provide for you in physical and emotional ways during labor after watching this course. He is going to be present in your labor in a completely different way than if he had not taken this course, and he will be there with his very own “tool kit” to provide for you.
The class is video-based, and packed full of information with a runtime of just under 2 hours. It is entertaining to watch, has a conversational feel, and leaves no part of the labor and delivery process out. I am willing to bet that he is feeling just as worried and anxious about your birth as you are, but after watching this class he will be completely in the know. This class will also help him to join in the preparation, excitement, and bonding that occurs more naturally with the mother before the baby is born, which is something every mom wants from their partner.
