Quick, Catch! Homebirthing Q&A For Dads

Natural Papa has a quick Q&A about dads and homebirth with Lome Aseron, an East Bay dad whose two kids were both born at home. It all looks like good, basic advice, but this still totally blows my mind:

5. What do you wish someone had told you before your first homebirth? What advice would you give to a first time homebirth dad?

My first son came so quickly that neither the midwife nor doula made it in time, so I delivered him myself. It was an incredibly wonderful and harrowing experience. I would advise a first time homebirth dad to accept that birth is a journey driven more by the baby's intent and will than anything you or your partner has done.
