Nurses Talk Comfort Measures for Labor and Birth

Thursday, March 12, 2015 7-9pm.

Having your baby at The Outer Banks Hospital? This event will be a great opportunity to meet the staff. If not, join us anyway to add techniques to your labor tool bag.

shutterstock_98943413A team from Labor & Delivery will join us to discuss comfort measures during labor and birth. Whether you’re planning for a medication free birth or not, labor is an intense experience and practicing breathing techniques, relaxation, positioning, and massage can help reduce anxiety and stress in the delivery room. The team will share ways that hospital staff can assist you. They will also discuss techniques that laboring women and their birth partners can use to work together as a team to prepare for the birth journey. Bring your questions!
