Earlier in May, PQCNC facilitated a labor support workshop in Greenville, NC and on May 20 a workshop was held in Charlotte, NC at the Atrium main campus. Nearly 65 obstetric providers gathered to learn labor support techniques and the physiology behind what makes them effective. The workshop was taught by midwives Tina Hayes and Sage Brook. The physician perspective of labor support and how best to communicate labor progress with providers was also provided. 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. Instructors and participants were able to share their personal experiences along with hints, tips and tricks of what nurses can do to facilitate labor support and provide women with the childbirth experience they desire.
