I decided to create Bump And Beyond due to the fact that the majority of patients coming to the delivery suit were very anxious, afraid or just unsure of what to expect during labor, and their support person was also unsure of how to be an effective support person to the labouring mother.
Being anxious and afraid causes an increase in adrenaline which then slows the labor down and decreases the likelihood of expectant mothers having a labour that they can embrace.
I then recognized that those mothers who attended birthing classes or who made themselves informed about labour and what to expect were more in control of their labor and the labour was shorter. Who wouldn’t want to give themselves the opportunity to have a shorter labour time?
