How to Have an Epidural in Awareness: A Teaching DVD
This 15-minute video/DVD, featuring Pam England's colorful and whimsical pastel drawings, illustrates the truthful and typical experience of labor with an epidural. Parents learn about the advantages, disadvantages, and the cascade of medical support that accompanies epidurals. The message to parents is to develop and maintain a solution-focused, non-judgmental mindset, so that if an epidural (or any medical support) becomes necessary, they can stay present emotionally and spiritually for the birth of their child.
"The video has exactly the tone I was hoping it would. There's no soft-pedaling on the potential drawbacks and side effects of epidurals, and yet that information is very non-threatening and accessible. I was totally impressed by the tremendous amount of information packed into a relatively short video. Two thumbs up!" ~ Eileen Sullivan, Doula and Childbirth Educator
