Just in general, I think the way to encourage him could be to model a good attitude about being wrong and about not doing things well.

It sounds like he's a perfectionist. I have that tendency...

I think they told you a load of bunk. I'd go with the many other things you read vs what your particular midwife practice said.

Did you use a bunch of other positions that didn't seem to work?
