Penny Simkin's Road Map of Labor Tear Pad
A handout version of Penny Simkin’s Road Map of Labor Interactive Display (item #90070), this tear pad helps parents understand what to expect during 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, representing the choice to have an epidural for pain relief. Each path ends joyfully with the baby’s birth. Includes illustrations of comfort measures to use as labor progresses. A great take-home sheet for couples to reinforce comfort measures learned in childbirth class. Two-sided. 100 sheets per pad.
