“We men are clueless, we want to help but have generally not the same level of empathy and emotional awareness than women do. That’s why we run around doing the physical stuff and buying things but when it comes to full heartfelt emotional support, true heart contact and to really truly take time to look deep into our wives eyes and souls many of us stay on the surface. Proper training will enhance the father’s relationship with himself first and foremost and then from this inner stability of knowing what to do and to be calm, gentle, supportive of his partner by listening through the heart this will not only help a natural birth but also solidify the family bond between mother, father and child. Conversely during these peak times any unhelpful behaviour can lead to trauma and a deep rupture in this relationship which can cause emotional trauma to mother and child that never can be fully mended.

Any responsible father would be insane not to book this Daddy Doula course.”
