How Not to Panic at the Start of Labor

By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:

A recent letter from a soon-to-be-dad read:

I am a very excited, not to mention anxious, first-time father. My wife is approaching the end of her pregnancy, and so far it looks good that we will have a natural start to her labor. Truth be told, I am nervous about what to expect and what I should do. What tips would you offer for parents preparing for the arrival of their first baby? Thanks!

In order to help him out, I wrote First Time Labor: How to Get it Through It Without Panicking. In it you will find some practical suggestions on how to handle the start of natural labor and how keeping calm during that early stage can have a positive affect on the whole birthing experience.
