Touch is a powerful tool for easing anxiety, fear, and pain in the powerful waves of labor. Many birth workers use their presence along with gentle touch to reassure the mother they are supported and cared for during the powerful transition to motherhood. As you decide on your birth team and setting, one of the questions you should ask your provider is about the support you will receive during one of the most incredible journeys you will ever travel. You are entitled to be your own best advocate, to feel surrounded by people who have your best interests at heart, and to be touched in a loving and respectful manner. Rely on the experts who know the value of human presence and touch as one of the great tools for supporting women through labor and birth!
