Peanut Ball Skills for Birth Workers: Comprehensive Workshop
Comprehensive Peanut Ball Workshop
Presented by Heidi Duncan, Authorized Peanut Ball Trainer
IN-PERSON WORKSHOPS HAVE RETURNED FOR 2023!
Peanut balls originated in physical therapy settings, but are now widely used as a birth support tool.
How many peanut ball positions do you think there are? Do you know why and when to use them?
Get beyond simple side-lying and "the pretzel" during this workshop. Learn the many uses without an epidural as well as with one. (Yes, it's useful for home birth, too!) Understand how to select the proper size ball for the person and position. And much more!
This is an interactive learning experience with opportunities for return demonstration and skills check-off throughout the event.
In the 6-hour Comprehensive Workshop, you will learn when and why to use the peanut ball, safety guidelines, Essential positions for laboring in and out of bed, posture cues, and keys for remembering the positions. You will then build upon the Essentials with another 15-20 Advanced positions for your toolkit, including those based on birth biomechanics principles working with fetal station and positions. AND SO MUCH MORE!
DONA contact hours will be available for all attendees.
Nursing CEs will be available for an additional fee.
