High-Touch Nursing Care During Labor 3-Volume DVD Set
A co-production between between InJoy and the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), this three-volume video program on DVD offers nurses guidance to balance high-touch emotional support while providing medical care in high-tech delivery settings. Contact hours are no longer available from AWHONN for this program.
Volume 1: Admission Asessment covers labor & psychosocial assessment (compassionate communication, relationships, reassurance, physical exam, signs of abuse, responding to fears, and assessing support needs) and cultural assessment & care planning (beliefs, privacy and exposure, expressions of pain, language barriers, evaluating expectations of labor and birth, birth plans, special needs or disabilities, working with a doula).
Volume 2: First Stage Labor Support covers labor pain (including factors affecting how a woman responds to pain in labor), the nurse’s role (being present, anxiety reduction, creating a supportive environment, and providing comfort measures), maternal positions & movements (side-lying, upward, forward leaning, birth ball, fetal monitoring), and non-pharmacologic techniques (massage, breathing, attention focusing and distraction, and more).
Volume 3: Second Stage Labor Support covers evidence-based care (pushing guidelines, fetal heart rate), positions (upright, hands and knees, side-lying, semi-Fowlers), providing comfort (comfort measures, emotions, communication, support people), and birth assistance & family support (reactions, skin-to-skin contact, breastfeeding support).
