There are many birthing positions that your partner can adopt to help facilitate an easier birth. You, my friend, will help her with these positions and will need to know them and to encourage her to try different positions as the labor progresses. 

Some of these positions include squatting, kneeling and standing and all require good muscle strength to pull them off.  By practicing these positions during pregnancy you are not only doing a trial run for the big day you are also helping her strengthen the right muscles....don’t forget she’ll be a lot heavier then so the muscles will need time to adjust to her increasing weight over time.

Don’t be a spectator in the Grand Prix of baby making. Be a co-driver, get behind the wheel and feel the exhilaration of building a baby and making a real difference.  

All this sounds ridiculous and a waste of time right? Do you want your birth to be as enjoyable, painless (for mum, baby and YOU) and as memorable as possible? If the answer is Yes then start exercising today, or tomorrow if you are reading this in bed.

So there you have it lads. Assisting your partner to eat well and exercise are the two biggest ways that you can directly influence the health and development of your baby. Don’t be a spectator in the Grand Prix of baby making. Be a co-driver, get behind the wheel and feel the exhilaration of building a baby and making a real difference. It’s your first role as being a dad.
