Hollie Lau, a mother of three and a midwife by profession, wanted her 9-year-old son to be by her side and to take an active part in the experience of giving birth to his sister.
“Regardless of gender, it is very important for children to watch the birth in order to demystify it. It is not something that is done behind closed doors and only concerns women!
Equally it is a unique moment to see the beauty and power of life itself. And this experience should be addressed to everyone, “said the mother in an interview.
Both of her older children had the choice to attend their sister’s birth, only the 9-year-old was the one who finally insisted and took the opportunity to participate.
