We all know exactly what childbirth is ... right? Well not really. Obviously childbirth is giving birth to a child but that's like saying 'love' is one thing or there is only one type of snow. In fact we really don't understand childbirth at all. It's something that happens to us more often than not.
Giving birth is one of those infrequent and monumental life experiences so you'd think all mothers-to-be and fathers-to-be would take a serious look at the skills they need to know so they can 'do' this infrequent and monumental experience! But a skills-based approach to childbirth isn't inside anyone's mind.
The focus around childbirth is all about gathering information, making choices and giving informed consent as this 'happens' to us. But that's half of the thinking. We have to have the skills to 'do' our birth experience.
We all need to wake up because the lack of birth and coaching skills means that the shame, blame, guilt and disappointment is being experienced by too, too many mothers and fathers.
So let's think this through. Won't you like to learn the skills that other fathers/mothers have used? How about developed? That's what Birthing Better with The Pink Kit Method® is ... skills developed by hundreds and hundreds of ordinary families who used these skills in every type of birth.
What did families want:
1) To have as safe a birth as possible for both the mother and baby.
2) To face the unknown with as much confidence as possible.
3) To stay on top of and in control of their baby's birth even if they have no control except the skills they use.
4) To look back on their baby's birth with pride, dignity and sense of self-empowerment as possible.
Making choices didn't address those four elements. Choices aren't always available and too frequently change. Birth Plans don't often unfold. You don't know what your birth will be like but it will unfold.
Having skills not only addresses those four elements but they work in every type of birth. Giving birth takes place over Time and skills fill that time.
Become a skilled birthing family.
