Peanut Ball Skills for Birth Workers
How many peanut ball positions do you think there are? Get beyond simple side-lying and "the pretzel" during this workshop. Learn the many uses without an epidural as well as with. (Yes, it's useful for homebirth, too!) Understand how to select the proper size ball for the person and position. And much more!
Basic registration ($30) covers attendance at the workshop, taught by Heidi Duncan, Authorized Peanut Ball Trainer.
Pro registration ($60) covers attendance plus a set of 3 laminated dual-sided position charts, demonstrating more than a dozen ways to use the peanut ball for labor. (They also double as handy fans during second stage!)
In the Essentials Workshop, you will learn when and why to use the peanut ball, 6-10 basic positions for laboring in and out of bed, posture cues and keys for remembering positions, and more. Opportunities for return demonstration and skills check-off.
In the Advanced Workshop, we will examine more closely how positioning affects fetal descent, alignment cues for epidural clients, using multiple peanut balls at once, and more. Opportunities for return demonstration and skills check-off.
