      • A resource tool to educate on comfort measures, safe positions, and techniques prior to and during labor

Childbirth Class Use in Labor Stations

      • Beneficial to have photos of different positions for the clients to view
      • Helps clients to understand and remember the information you provided
      • Demonstration tool for labor stations

Doula Bag

      • Helpful during labor as a quick visual for mom, instead of explaining a position to her while she is working hard or exhausted
      • A reminder of positions for yourself to explain and give examples for clients as a reference during labor

Twice lately I’ve done short tutorials for nurses and students on the peanut ball, as they were so interested in how I was positioning my clients. Of course I have those lovely laminated illustrated and colorful sheets from Premier Birth Tools, to show as well! Doing my little bit here in Cleveland, Ohio!

I have the position charts,  I use them, combined with the peanut ball in childbirth classes while discussing optimal positioning, labor rehearsal, and positioning if you are using medical technology to cope with the intensity of labor.
