Moaning in Japan Helps!

Delighted to receive this international endorsement:

"Hi! I just wanted to introduce myself. I took the McMoyler Method course online in 2010 and found it really helpful (especially the moaning!) in the birth of our first child.

Now, I am pregnant with our second child and due to give birth this Saturday. I've reread my coursebook as well as The Best Birth in preparation for baby #2 and am in the process of making cue cards for my husband. I live in Japan and am married to a Japanese man, so the cue cards will remind him what I need to get me through.

I'm lucky to have a midwife nurse and OBs who speak English, but their labor philosophies are very different from mine. When I was pregnant the first time, their recommended breathing pattern during labor was take a deep breath, let it out and then make a "puh" sound. In Japan, I guess "silence" during labor is a virtue. I think that's CRAZY!

Anyway, thank you for putting together and teaching a method that makes childbirth a little less stressful!"
