Do you feel helpless when your patient is looking at you for support through contractions?
Are you in a constant battle with yourself for offering pharmacological solutions too early because you don’t know how to help?
Do you wish you had easy things to teach your patient and their support person to do while you are out of the room so they can cope and ultimately progress?
This is the 5-hour course that you need to feel confident in helping your patients learn how to cope in labor with and without an epidural. This class is a mix of lectures and hands-on in a hospital room to give you realistic and practice tips. Learn the art of breath, instincts, positions, touch, how to adjust, mood and encouragement. Sarah teaches a strategic process as well as the “why” behind how to help your patients cope in labor.
This class is one month of the Bundle Birth Nurse Mentorship program and you may hear the instructors mention the program. If you want to know more about that program, click here. It includes a custom 38-page workbook to guide and facilitate learning.
At the end of this course it is expected that the student can:
- Demonstrate 3 different tools to help a patient cope in labor
- Create individualized plans for coping based on each stage of labor.
- Discuss how to implement BIPTAME in their practice.
This class was designed for Labor and Delivery nurses but any person can take and learn from it.
