This will be my first time in a delivery room, and it’s kind of scary. I can’t imagine what Kelsey will be thinking…
Kelsey made me watch The Business of Being Born early in our pregnancy, and things became real real quick. It’s been on my mind a lot throughout the pregnancy and I’ve adapted the mentality that I want to be the best coach I can be in the delivery room.
I know I’m not an expert on how to deliver a baby, but I am an expert in being Kelsey’s husband. I know her better than the midwife and nurses know her. As her husband I think I have a leg up in the situation on how to make her feel better.
With the help of the birthing class we took, I’ve tried to equip myself with the tools I need to be the most help I can be for Kelsey while in labor. While it scares the shiitake mushrooms out of me to go through this, thinking about what she will actually be going through scares me more.
