50 Things For Partners To Say In Labour

Just a short but sweet blog post today.

I do tons of work with partners about what to do in labour. They learn lots of techniques to help the labouring mum both physically and emotionally but I realised sometimes they need a little help in what to say.

I draw up this handy little list for them to use during labour. Feel free to print and pop in your labour bag!


There are 50 options there so plenty for any length labour. They aren’t too airy-fairy and most guys/partners shouldn’t have any trouble finding at least a few they are comfortable saying.

I hope this keeps your birth partner saying the right thing and out of trouble!

Hi I'm Michelle. I am a second-generation birth passioneer, a protector and supporter of birthing parents and birth workers alike. Among so many things, I am a HypnoBirthing Educator, doula, advocate and disruptor of the birthing status quo. I also laugh too hard at my own jokes, I swear and often over-share! Since attending my first birth in 2016, I fell head over heels in love with all things birth and was determined to make this my life’s calling. Connecting women to their purpose, to their children, to their ability to birth, to run businesses, to be happy…this is my reason for being on this earth.
