087 Chatting with Brian "The Birth Guy" Salmon

Brian is a dad to 2 girls and he is no stranger to this world of babies and parenting. Among many roles, he’s a doula, lactation expert and birth mentor.

Professionally, Brian has worked with 19’000+ expectant families, and currently teaches the popular Dad’s childbirth class “Rocking Dads”, he’s a co-host of Rocking Dads Revolution Podcast and a big advocate of dads being involved from early on!

Today’s episode is packed with lot of energy (mostly from Brian’s part :)), and a lot of actionable advice for expecting dads and new dads alike.

Some of the topics we’ll get into:

  • Brian’s story – how he became a birth assistant.
  • Tips for labor
  • Dads’ roles in the “fourth trimester”, including top notch advice for first few weeks!
  • Importance of forming the family’s “corporate culture” already before the baby comes along.
  • Importance of dads getting involved early on.
  • Importance of reaching out for help (if in need).
  • How new generation of dads is stepping up much more than the dads of previous generations.
  • Common fears dads have about birth and early fatherhood.
  • The transformation he sees in dads after going through his class.

To sum it up – if you’re still expecting or you have a small bundle of joy who recently joined your family – this episode is a must-listen!

P.S. In the end you’ll hear Brian making a bold promise ;)
