Penny Simkin's Road Map of Labor Tear Pad, Virtual
Perfect for teaching online as well as for projecting from a laptop during class presentations, this digital version of Penny Simkin’s Road Map of Labor Tear Pad comes on a convenient thumb drive and 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 as well as the instructions for how to use the road map that are featured on the back of the tear pad.
