One of the topics we learned in the Burth Class was the Gate Theory. I think it’s a very interesting theory & makes me think if it was one of the reasons why I’m able to stand the stress & pain if my 5 labor’s.
This theory came into being in the early1960’s. It works by blocking the transmission of painful sensations from the bottom of the spinal colon, called the the “gate”, by switching it “off” so it does not reach the nervous system on to the brain. The stimulants are massage pressure touch etc. .. That is why a labor partner/coach is very important to have. The best person would be your Husband because he is a person you can be relaxed with. Relaxation plays a very important factor in the Gate Theory.

We go around the room in a circle and couples share what changes they have noticed in their wives ever since she got pregnant. Now that their wives are pregnant, they noticed that she has a lot of physical discomforts. One Father had the symptoms of pregnancy. He was the one craving for certain foods to eat.
In this video, a Husband shares what he does to make her feel more comfortable.

It’s their 1st time to attend a Birth Class!
Was so touched reading some of Dr. Grantly Dick-Read’s famous quotes from his book, Childbirth without Fear. Giving him tribute! So very grateful in his break through in being able to start Childbirth Classes during his era when women were being knocked out during our birth. Truly, he is the Father of Natural Childbirth!

I was pleasantly surprised when Joy contacted me to find out the schedule of my next Childbirth Class. I thought maybe she would refer me to a preggy friend, only to find out it was for her. This is her sixth time to attend my class. Yes this is her 6th baby with me! How wonderful to have her! She lives up to her name because she’s really a positive joyful person.
She and Edric shared their birth stories to their classmates who eagerly listened. I was sure they were more than encouraged because of the sharing. I pray that this 6th birth will be her easiest labor & birth! God bless you both as you lead others into good parenting.
You should follow Joy’s blog as she shares her joys & challenges in being a wife and a mother.
