Maternity care can be intimidating. Even to me as a mother baby nurse. My first delivery was scary, via urgent c-section. My second delivery was less scary. But I will always remember how scared I was the first time. And I know many mothers feel that way. Reassurance is so important, as is validation of concerns. Anything that makes a mother feel in control of her body and empowered in her delivery is important. I have not always felt that way in my own deliveries, and wish for that feeling for other moms.
