There is nothing quite like the vision of a fathers nurturing arms around a birthing mother. He may be massaging her back or supporting her body in a powerful position as she moves with the waves of her contractions. Perhaps his eyes are locked with hers in a pure moment of love as he let’s her know he is right there to witness her greatness. Some of my most rewarding moments as a doula have come from loving Dad’s while they support their partners. My role as a doula and part of your birth team is to support Dad’s in being involved as much as they want to be.
“Being the husband, I buckle under pressure and don’t really know what to do, Imogen took a load off, guided me and my wife through and helped me be there for my wife steering me in the right direction, in ways I could help and offer assistance, it really helped me cope and the stress and fear was gone.
She was there for us, step by step, and we wouldn’t do it again without her.
Her support before, during and after the birth was incredible.
I can’t ever thank you enough Imogen.”
