This little book is a precious tool to give out to parents who want to do everything possible to experience natural childbirth.
The “Ballon Forme Couples Method ©” developed by Danielle Fournier has 3 main focuses: first and foremost, introducing movement in the process of labor. The more we move, the more we participate. And the more we participate, the more power we have over ourselves.
Next, this method implies the participation of a partner. So right from the start, the notion of isolation is excluded. When the partner is the father-to-be, he too plays a role in helping the mother pursue her own personal pain management, which definitely reinforces the complicity between the two parents.
Finally, this book emphasizes on the importance of spontaneity when using the ball. Essentially; it all comes down to building the mother-to-be’s self confidence.
