Fathers-to-be Pregnancy Academy 24 to 36 Weeks
While this third Fathers-to-be Pregnancy Academy course from 24-36 weeks continues your journey through the 5 phases, we’re going to start you on the path toward preparing for The Birth. You do NOT need to have taken the first two courses if you’re pregnant between 24-36.
This course spends more Time discussing your newly growing role as birth-coach and how you prepare your baby’s mother’s pregnant/birthing body.
Men developed the 10 pregnancy skills and equally participated in developing both birth and birth-coaching skills THEN developing the necessary skills to prepare a pregnant body for the birth of a very big object … your baby.
We do go over all the 10 skills but in a different order than in the previous courses. However, the stress of this course is how you use these skills to start The Birth preparation.
Birthing Better families chose 24 weeks to start birth preparation because the Mind of any pregnant woman begins to turn toward The Birth. Pregnancy is more than half way completed. The birth hormones become active for all pregnant women whether your baby’s mother will labor and have a vaginal birth, have an unplanned Cesarean or a planned non-laboring Cesarean.
We focus on you and how you are important in this practical skills-focused birth preparation.
- You’ll be able to walk these two paths: growing the 10 pregnancy skills and starting birth preparation.
- If you’ve taken either of the previous courses, you are maturing and feeling much more confident at this point because you’ve grown skills and no longer feel left behind.
- If this is your first Fathers-to-be Pregnancy Academy course then you’ll be jumping into walking two paths … growing your 10 pregnancy skills and feeling comfortable participating in specific, hands-on body preparation for the coming birth.
- You’re 10 steps ahead of other fathers-to-be who do not know there are 10 skills to grow during pregnancy. You’ll look in the mirror and feel confident about yourself.
We're continuing with Phase 3 of pregnancy 24-36 weeks and how the 10 skills dads developed can be applied. The path splits during this phase. Pregnancy continues on one path. Preparing for The Birth is now part of your mind and your baby's mother's awareness.
Exploring the 10 skills men developed and how they morph during these 12 weeks of pregnancy toward your self, your baby and baby's mother.
You are on your Hero's Journey.
One of the foundation skills. Clarity leads you to 'choice'. Choice is what you make at every moment. Use clarity rather than react.
Pregnancy requires men to grow as it requires the baby's mother because the baby is growing. Whether your first or 10th pregnancy, you are now growing more consciously then you've ever done in your Life.
She wants you to be clear. She'll be grateful that you have clarity when she might feel befuddled.
Clarity to your baby is about being clear that now is the Time to focus on preparing your partner's body to birth this ever growing baby.
We'll continue to discuss different aspects of humour and being lighthearted
You may have been through a challenging 24 weeks of pregnancy. The reason men developed these skills were to keep up with the rapid changes in pregnancy. You can look back now and see how challenging these 24 weeks have been.
