The Good Birth Match©
By: Lisa Gould Rubin, CCE, CD (DONA), Birth and Newborn Parenting Consultant
Our many years of helping women have babies have led us to develop a pretty accurate way for you to see what kinds of coping strategies will work best for you in labor. We call it The Good Birth Match©. What it does is help you connect you –the type of person you are—to the kinds of labor coping strategies that fit you best.
Check each habit below that describes you. Then look underneath to see what you might be doing in labor. How you deal with stress, anxiety and pain in your day-to-day life will pretty much be the same in labor. That’s why having a realistic picture of the strategies that you naturally use will help you have a realistic idea of the kind of birth that’s right for you.
For the habits mentioned above, please go to this detailed PDF document created for babybites by Lisa.
