“Comfort Measures is wonderful. I suggest that it be required viewing for all pregnant couples and childbirth professionals. Even the process of watching it was comforting. I learned a LOT!! – Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom.
This completely new DVD replaces the VHS version previously available from Penny Simkin. The 91-minute DVD is divided into 4 sections: 1) Basic relaxation and rhythmic breathing, 2) Comfort measures, devices, and positions, 3) Techniques to help with back pain and labor progress, and 4) Positions and techniques for pushing and birth. The detailed interactive menu allows you to choose exactly what you want to watch — the entire DVD, a single section, or even a single comfort measure to learn or review.
These techniques, along with a helpful, confident partner and/or doula, are the tools you need if you wish to labor without medication or to postpone an epidural until active labor. Comfort Measures is perfect for expecting parents, childbirth educators, doulas, midwives, doctors, and for students in nursing, midwifery and medical school.
