Penny Simkin’s Road Map of Labor is a fun way to teach expectant parents about what happens during labor. The display features a large, laminated chart (30" x 23") and a detailed presentation guide that illustrate the road map of labor. The road map depicts labor as a journey that begins with early labor and ends with birth. The journey includes three paths: a winding yellow brick road with no fixed timeline; a longer, rougher detour for back pain that eventually rejoins the yellow brick road; and the epidural highway, which represents the choice to have an epidural for pain relief. Each paths ends joyfully with the baby’s birth. The road map includes illustrations of comfort measures to use as labor progresses. Perfect for childbirth classes and birthing rooms.
