Labor Progress & Preventing Dystocia

It's estimated that at least 20% of all women develop problems during labor, making childbirth longer and more difficult for mother and baby. In my 35+ years working with pregnant and postpartum mothers, I believe that the rate is actually much higher than that. Dystocia often leads to intervention,

and all too often, a traumatic birth experience for the mother and baby. The word dystocia is often only associated with shoulder dystocia, but the true medical meaning of it is "slow or difficult labor or delivery."

In this class you'll learn the most common causes of difficult labors: Why they occur, how to help prevent them from occurring, and how to help manage problems when they do occur. Topics include:

Optimal Fetal Positioning
Abnormal Fetal Positioning
Fetopelvic Disproportion
Possible Maternal Issues
Possible Medical Interventions
Prevention, Assessment & Management of Dystocia

"How a baby is born and how well a woman is treated when she gives birth sets the tone and is the matrix from which a child will grow into a future we have not yet imagined." Marianne Littlejohn
