I am excited to show this new handout to everyone. I am convinced that we need to stop teaching the stages of labor and teach the various ways to progress and labor that are all normal. There is a great post on this at midwife thinking. http://midwifethinking.com/2011/09/14/the-assessment-of-progress/. I’ve decided that the best way to present “progression” to woman is to show them how the things they are feeling during late pregnancy and labor are all related to how their body is changing(based off of Penny Simkins 6 ways to progress).
