Words of Praise

I enjoyed the hands-on practice of the laboring techniques with my birthing partner. My "Don Draper" husband was actually very engaged and referenced the list of "instructions" and position options frequently. I think up until this point, I was expecting him to just know what I needed, but he's a check-list kind of dude, so this really worked well for him.
