ARE YOU AN
EXCITING THINGS ARE HERE!
Are you a Labor & Delivery nurse and wish you had more tools & strategies to help your patients achieve a vaginal birth? We've all seen the "experienced" nurse pull tricks out of their hats to help get the baby lower or get the patient to complete... but has anyone ever taught you how and why they work? What about malpositions? Do you know how to strategically get the baby rotated? We got you! We believe that YOU make a huge impact on the patients you care for and deserve to have all the tools to help give them the best labor experience possible, with the best outcomes.
Tired of the same-old, read the powerpoint nursing trainings? US TOO! We are committed to helping you learn in a fun, interactive way that gives you practical tools you can apply TOMORROW at the bedside!
This workshop will provide you with 8 Continuing Education Hours from the California BRN.
Identify the hormones of labor and how they contribute to physiologic birth.
Discuss the importance of the maternal pelvis, pelvic floor, ligaments, uterine muscle, and cardinal movements of the fetus, how they work together and how they facilitate physiologic birth.
Compare maternal positions and movements during labor and how they facilitate the descent of fetus.
Display proper use of various birth props such as (but not limited to) rebozo, birth ball, and peanut ball.
Predict and identify fetal malpositions and how the RN can actively respond to facilitate optimal fetal positioning.
Identify causes for labor dystocia and create pathophysiologic solutions to reverse them.
Identify patients with a history of trauma and adapt care accordingly.
Demonstrate therapeutic communication techniques between the nurse, provider and patient when encouraging a physiologic birth intervention.
Explain how understanding and pursuing physiologic birth can decrease cesarean birth rates and maternal morbidity/mortality.
Integrate 3 new techniques into practice.
Physiologic Birth Workshop
This 8-hour workshop is designed for labor & delivery nurses working with intrapartum women and their partner(s), practicing in the inpatient hospital setting. It will provide information necessary to promote physiologic birth and/or interact with various labor patterns/interruptions through non pharmacological nursing interventions. This course promotes birth as a normal, physiologic process for the majority of women, but recognizes that there are common interruptions in the birth process that can have an impact on the ultimate mode of delivery. Upon successful completion of the workshop, the participant will be able to educate, triage and better facilitate physiologic birth to meet the desires of the laboring woman and accomplish a vaginal birth.
This workshop will be presented through multiple activities, hands on practice, lecture, visuals, models and discussion.
Training includes workbook + other fun supplies (sent via snail mail) to help assist your learning!
Make sure you wear comfy clothes! Consider signing up with a buddy and take the class together so you can practice with each other!
Some topics we will cover: Anatomy/physiology of physiologic birth, supporting hormones of labor, pelvic floor, the pelvis, strategic positions for labor, identifying and treating acynclitism, OP, labor dystocia, arrest of descent, trauma-informed care, legal/ethics, closed- knee pushing, case studies and therapeutic communication strategies for working with the hospital team. .
