Mamas PLEASE HELP!
My husband falls asleep every single time I’m in labour- well, apart from the first time I must admit!
He’s an excellent support person, however, I find it tremendously challenging to keep waking him up AND delivering a baby at the same time.
How do you keep your support person entertained enough to stay awake during birthing? I mean I’ve tried everything they mentioned in the books like telling him he’s beautiful, he’s going to be alright etc etc but as of baby number seven NONE of those tactics actually worked AND birthing whilst assuring him that I like him is incredibly challenging as I feel so breathless!
I’m desperate for him to pay attention this time around… without any “wake up” prompts from me!
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated please
