Tips for fathers

A lot of dads feel like they watch helplessly during labor.
For most women, being present is already of great help.
Besides that there are other ways you can help and support:
  • Register the frequency and time of the contractions for the midwife;
  • Massage the abdomen, back, buttocks or legs;
  • Ask regularly if you can do something for your partner, cold washcloth, drinking, etc.
  • Give compliments that she does well.
