Supporting Physiologic Birth Class for L&D Nurses – Rental

We’re excited to support you with this 8-hour, LIVE ONLINE class viewing for your entire group. This training will provide information necessary to promote physiologic birth and/or interact with various labor patterns/interruptions through nonpharmacological nursing interventions.

We promote birth as a normal, physiologic process for the majority of birthing people, but recognize that there are common interruptions in the birth process that can have an impact on the ultimate mode of delivery. Upon successful completion of the workshop, the participant will be able to educate, triage, and better facilitate physiologic birth to meet the desires of the laboring person and accomplish a vaginal birth.

Please download the guides presented here to supplement your experience.

At the end of the class, a QR Code will be displayed on the screen for your audience to scan (also provided in your facilitator guide), take their evaluation and submit for CEs.

Everyone attending needs to fill out a class evaluation in order to receive their CEs.

*8 CEs from the California BRN will be awarded upon completion of this class.

FOUNDATIONS

We put our hearts and souls into this course for you. Understanding your why and building your mission statement will build a solid foundation for a lasting career. Setting a solid foundation will help you on hard days. It will help you during a demise. It will help you when your patient ends up in the OR. It will help you when you feel like you have an unfair assignment. It will help you care for a patient with different beliefs. It will help you when working with difficult coworkers. It will help you see what really matters. 

This course will cover topics such as ethics, advocacy, patient rights, nurse’s rights, the essence of nursing, HIPAA and more. We know, the stuff you learn in nursing school, but our hope is that this is a fresh take on each topic, that you can actually apply what you learn in this class and that it helps continue to grow your roots deep. It IS important and we know you’ll especially see why after this class.

At the end of this course, it is expected that the student can:

  1. Explain what human dignity, self-determination and advocacy are and how they pertain to our field of nursing
  2. Develop personal goals for continued professional development, self-care, and lifelong learning.
  3. Practice safe, evidence-based and ethical care

*4.5 CEs from the California BRN will be awarded upon completion of this class. Class access expires 2 yrs from purchase.

Patient Education

We carry so much responsibility most days, and educating our patients can seem like a very daunting and impossible task to fit in at times. In this class, our goal is to give you practical tools to educate your patient and their support team effectively. You may be thinking; I don’t have all the time to do this! Especially when you are new, you can barely keep up with all the tasks and charting… but we find repeatedly that the better, the more clearly you provide education to your patients, the easier your job is in the long run. 

When we discussed building rapport, trust, advocating and giving them the right to self-determination in your Foundations class; patient education is the gateway to achieving all those things for your care. You get there quicker and easier when you provide this education. The goal would be for the patient to completely understand what’s happening with their body/health and that they get to participate in that process! Think of patient education as preventive medicine. Sarah will go over topics like education versus informed consent, how to talk through EFM, how to explain pushing and inductions, and more! You will learn all of Sarah’s tips and by the end of this class, you will have tons of scripts you can incorporate into your practice.

At the end of this course it is expected that the student can:

  1. Explain the nurses role in patient education 
  2. Develop a plan to implement 2 teaching tools at the bedside
  3. Summarize the three components of patient education
  4. Formulate a plan to assess, teach and verify

*7 CEs from the California BRN will be awarded upon completion of this class. Class access expires 2 yrs from purchase.

Coping with Labor

Do you feel helpless when your patient is looking at you for support through contractions? 

Are you in a constant battle with yourself for offering pharmacological solutions too early because you don’t know how to help?

Do you wish you had easy things to teach your patient and their support person to do while you are out of the room so they can cope and ultimately progress?

This is the 5-hour course that you need to feel confident in helping your patients learn how to cope in labor with and without an epidural. This class is a mix of lectures and hands-on in a hospital room to give you realistic and practice tips. Learn the art of breath, instincts, positions, touch, how to adjust, mood and encouragement. Sarah teaches a strategic process as well as the “why” behind how to help your patients cope in labor. 

This class is one month of the Bundle Birth Nurse Mentorship program and you may hear the instructors mention the program. If you want to know more about that program, click here. It includes a custom 38-page workbook to guide and facilitate learning. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Demonstrate 3 different tools to help a patient cope in labor
  2. Create individualized plans for coping based on each stage of labor.

Shared Decision Making

We are POSITIVE that this is the class you’re most excited about for all of mentorship 😆JK! BUT surprise! It might actually be the most important! We encourage you to stick with this one as this will help you not only protect yourself, your license but also your patient’s birth experiences.

In this class, you will learn from different perspectives/experts to explain to us what shared decision-making and informed consent actually are, what it looks like in practice and what we are responsible for. Shared decision-making is the goal, and we believe that our role is right in the middle of that process, facilitating the needs of both the provider and patient. This is no easy task. We believe in you and believe you will do what’s right when it comes to shared decision-making. Baby steps. We are up against culture and system that doesn’t always do this perfectly, and that’s ok! You are accountable to yourself and your patients. Do your best! Utilize your resources, and speak up for what is right. Your influence in this process MATTERS, and you are not alone.

At the end of this course it is expected that the student can:

Objectives: 

1) The student can describe their role and responsibility in the informed consent process. 

2) The student can differentiate between verbal, written and implied consent. 

3) The student can recognize the difference between informed consent and shared decision-making.

This class features Julie Cantor MD, JD and Pamela Hetrick CNM, expert witness for added value and learning.

Physiologic Birth-Mentorship

We know that this is a module that many of you have been looking forward to – it’s your 101 entry into building your expertise in physiologic birth. In this class, we are going to teach you how to set the body up for labor progress, as well as what actually happens in the body during labor, so that you can recognize when it’s “working” vs. disrupted. 

As nurses we have power and influence over the birth room – we can negotiate more time with the doctor, and make a suggestion that can help move closer to a vaginal birth or get in the way. We are “experts” at birth; let’s then be experts at the anatomy and physiology of birth because when you understand what is and should happen, you can better anticipate, plan for and adjust to help achieve a vaginal birth. Knowing that position changes, in general, are our weapon in fighting the c-section. We have to keep them moving – so let’s understand what we’re doing and why it may help. We hope you are as inspired by this content as we are and that you walk away from this module feeling challenged, encouraged, and excited to go to work and help these birthing families bring life into the world.

At the end of this course it is expected that the student can:

  1. Summarize what physiologic birth is and what can disrupt it. 
  2. Distinguish different parts and levels of the female pelvis and how the fetus moves through it. 
  3. Create a care plan for a fetus that is asynclitic and occiput posterior.

*4.5 CEs from the California BRN will be awarded upon completion of this class. Class access expires two years  from purchase.

Bereavement Counseling

If taking care of a family that has or is about to have a baby born still makes you uncomfortable, we understand. 

Being the support person to a bereaved family is a huge responsibility that we bear as L&D nurses and birth workers. Our education in this field is lacking and this 4-hour class was created to help you take a deep breath and feel prepared to support these families. 

You will hear real stories, learn tips to build rapport, what to say, how to give baths, do certain mementos, and how to take care of yourself. 

Class includes 19 modules and a custom 44-page workbook.

This class was designed for Labor and Delivery nurses but any person can take and learn from it. 

Learning Objectives:

Preventing Birth Trauma – Level 1

We know birth matters

Those of us who support birth know that the experiences of our births stay with us and have a lasting impact. How we feel about our birth begins the story of our parenting. With the COVID-19 pandemic, birth has become an even more complex experience within the system.

As a birth professional…

Do you see your clients and patients develop trauma from their births? Do you feel overwhelmed or just need some clarity about it? Do you fear that you will see an increase in trauma with the recent developments and feel powerless?

While over 30% of those giving birth describe the experience as traumatic, up to 8% will go on to develop PTSD as a result of the experience. It’s my opinion that these numbers will increase over the coming months. As birth professionals, we will undoubtedly attend traumatic births (virtually or in-person) and yet we are given little if any information about best practices for preventing trauma to our clients. What are we supposed to do here?

Can we do anything?

Description

In this class, we will discuss:

  • What is birth trauma?
  • Who is most at risk for PTSD after birth?
  • What are the signs of birth trauma?
  • What can we do in the birth room (virtually or in-person) to minimize psychological trauma to our clients?

This class will emphasize therapeutic skills that can be adapted to the real world by an experienced licensed trauma therapist and certified doula who has been there.

Perfect for doulas, nurses, midwives and OBs

Goal

After this class, you will have a deeper understanding of the subject of birth trauma as well as five immediately applicable new skills for the birth room with your clients and patients. You will leave the class (finally!) equipped to grapple with this timely and important topic.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define birth trauma and understand who is most at risk.
  2. Understand the most common reasons why birth trauma occurs.
  3. Learn ways that we can prevent or protect against birth trauma at the very next birth we support.
  4. Discuss specific strategies we can use to help our clients or patients prevent or lessen birth trauma symptoms they already have.

Course includes 14 lessons and a 20 pg workbook.

* 2.75 CEs from the California BRN are given for this course. Class expires two years from the purchase date. 

Some Scary Stuff – High Risk Perinatal Nursing

Take a quick minute and think about how confident and/or knowledgeable you feel when managing the scary stuff? After this class you will know the patho of why emergencies happen and what you can do about it. This course will go over 5 main OB emergencies: shoulder dystocia, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, hemorrhage, prolapsed cord and sepsis. You will learn some pathophysiology, signs to look for and what to do as the primary or support RN so that you can function freely in your role as the nurse. 

At the end of this course it is expected that the student can:

  1. Demonstrate how to perform Macroberts and suprapubic pressure
  2. Interpret vital signs and clinical presentation to determine if a hypertensive patient is decompensating
  3. Identify sepsis criteria in a pregnant person 
  4. Summarize the 4 stages of blood loss in a postpartum hemorrhage and appropriate nursing interventions for each
