Kate, a new student midwife, emailed me about coping with your first birth as a student midwife.
She wanted to know how to cope at her first birth, as she had seen so many on TV and online that she has a lot of nervous energy and is worried about doing something silly! Hope this helps Kate!
Kate's actual email went along these lines:
‘Do you have any tips for my first birth? I’ve always wanted to be a midwife, and I’ve read so much and watched so many births on TV or online that I’ve got a ton of nervous energy and I’m really scared about doing something stupid. Do you have any tips to help put the lady and her family at ease with me being there? How can I best help when attending my first ever birth?’
I think as well Kate, because you are sensitive enough to be thinking along these lines, one day you will make a wonderful midwife 🙂
Have I left any good advice out? Let me know in the comments below.
As always, if you could like and share, it'd be legendary, and help me keep making these!
