Role Play Labor Scenarios
There are two columns below with selections for an interactive activity. The mom chooses what is happening and the partner selects what they can do. Feel free to improvise off the list and create an open discussion about what feels right for your individual needs and preferences. This back and forth is a great exploratory method for discovering solutions and possibilities for your birth experience and "experiencing" the labor process mentally and verbally together, so that once labor begins these techniques and strategies will already feel familiar and come to you more easily in the moments that you need them. Through this activity we can problem solve and discuss scenarios beforehand, so that we are better prepared in labor.
