Also- talk to them about what language you want them to use. I recently attended a client who had a friend there- who EVERY contraction she asked how strong was that one. I finally got her to stop- but it was so counter productive.

I'd sugguest to them some using words like intense, productive, awesome as opposed to strong, painful, hard in regards to contractions.

a great book is the birth partner- but it's long. It would be good to have them read certain sections of it at least tho.
