We thought we’d start 2022 off with a funny but very honest blog….
Having a birthing partner is a wonderful thing when bringing a baby into the world, but it can have its downsides too. Remember when your birthing partner would sit there yawning, stating the obvious, moaning how long it’s all taking and just generally complaining throughout. This isn’t very helpful when you’re in labour and in a lot of pain!! Birthing partners are there to help and offer support throughout the birth, yet sometimes they can be totally useless!! We asked our customers to share some of their birthing partners outrageous ‘one liners’…. We wonder how many of these you can relate to?
A BIRTHING PARTNER SHOULD NEVER SAY…
THIS IS LABOUR IS SO TIRING
CALL ME WHEN YOU’RE NEARLY DONE
CAN YOU ADD A FEW MORE STITCHES?
I’M JUST GOING TO GET SOME FOOD, YOU’RE DOING A GOOD JOB
HOW MUCH LONGER YOU THINK?
ARE YOU SURE YOU DON’T WANT MORE PAIN RELIEF?
I’M SO TIRED
THE PAIN CAN’T BE THAT BAD
WHY DON’T YOU TRY THIS…?
CAN I WATCH THE FOOTBALL?
THIS CHAIR IS SO UNCOMFORTABLE
DO YOU THINK THEY’LL BRING ME SOME TOAST?
CAN YOU HURRY UP?
I can definitely remember my husband saying a few of these, but luckily our children are now 13 & 16 so his comments are a distant memory!!
