Preparing someone else for your labour...?
I have a friend who is expecting her 2<SUP>nd</SUP> baby in March, she’s planning a homebirth. She has invited her younger sister (18 years old) as labour support (as well as her mother and older sister).
Her sister has never been to a birth and so my friend has thought about writing up an “at the birth” plan for her sister. Kind of explaining what will happen, and what is expected of her.
I had never heard of anyone doing this before and it got me thinking... Has anyone ever written a Birth Plan for a labour attendant explaining the process and what you expect of them? Or have you just assumed that they will do the research on their own? Would you invite a birth attendant who has never given birth themselves (aside from DH/SO, of course)?
