DIY Prenatal Skills Mini Course
Have you ever wondered how, why, and when certain things like urine strips or fundal height would be necessary in pregnancy? Or are they?
Do you know how to properly perform these “skills”, and do you know what the potential “results” mean, and how to respond to what you might find?
This mini course is for women who are choosing to do their own prenatal care as well as for women that want to be more empowered and informed in the process of conventional prenatal care. Childbirth educators, doulas and and midwifery students would benefit from this discussion too!
Registrants will receive a recording of the two hour class, and have access to full videos detailing the “hows” of each of the skills discussed.
Many of these skills can be learned via textbooks but we think our multi-media approach and our philosophy of DIY prenatal care will be accessible and exciting. We’ll be talking about how to perform the skills, but more importantly why you would choose to do them in the first place, and what you might do with the information you gain (interpretation).
This mini course includes a recorded webinar, detailed handouts and individual videos on each of the skills we will be covering, which will include:
– Basic Record Keeping
– Blood Pressure
– Other Vital Signs
– Fundal Height
– Palpation and Determining Fetal Position
– Listening to Baby’s Heartbeat
– Assessing Swelling
The cost for this in-depth “mini course” is $100.
