Labor Support in Action

Nearly 50 obstetric providers gathered at Vidant Medical Center for a PQCNC workshop to learn labor support techniques and the physiology behind what makes them effective.  The workshop was taught by midwives Kay Mitchell and Jomeka Mowery and childbirth educator Jennifer Kendrick.  After a discussion of various labor support techniques and viewing instructional videos, participants were able to experience hands on practice of the techniques with continued guidance provided by the instructors.  Additionally, patient educational materials were supplied along with hints, tips and tricks of what nurses can do to facilitate labor support and provide women with the childbirth experience they desire.
