Our Patient-Centered Coaching Approach
How broad is the variety of labor support tools with which you can support Tammy right now? How can you help her cope and achieve progress in her labor, without giving up on her birth vision?
How confident are you in your verbal leadership skills with which you can help Tammy overcome this moment of despair and hold on to her conviction of having a natural active birth?
If you're not positively sure about those questions, and want to learn effective coaching strategies that establish rapport and partnership, and fully engage your patients in the birthing process so they remain true to their vision, read on. Birth Coach Method has a one-day training program developed just for L&D nurses, and we're happy to hold it at your place of work.
Our workshops combine coaching skills with traditional labor support techniques that have always guided and supported birthing women.
LEADING patient-centered maternal care to increase patient satisfaction
TEACHING L&D staff to establish rapport and coach for better outcomes
EXPANDING nurses' variety of labor support techniques and strategies, increasing the chances of healthy vaginal deliveries
With the current efforts made by several organizations, including ACOG and WHO, to reduce cesarean rates and support the vaginal birth initiative (VBI), it has become evident that clinical skills, while necessary and valuable, are not sufficient.
We will provide you with the missing skills to support the vaginal birth initiative!

"Thank you for organizing all this and seeing the need for a labor coaching class; this is where I struggle the most - how to manage unmedicated patients.
I loved the hands on experience. It really embedded the new information in my head. I will definitely use these techniques with my laboring patients, whether they are in early labor, active or with epidural. The class overall covered everything I expected and more. I'm glad we talked about early labor and epidurals, I wasn't expecting that. It was very helpful."

"I really enjoyed learning about mirroring (the video was very interesting!) and establishing rapport. I also really like working together on case studies to roll play responses for different types of patient scenarios. I like how you had different modes of instruction, from the video to the group discussion, to the breathing exercises, to keep us awake and engaged. And of course, we definitely liked the hands-on skills, and how to use each technique for the stage and phase of labor that is appropriate. shortly after the workshop, we did put our skills into action and we had a phenomenal success story facilitating a safe vaginal birth."
Lauren Severiano, ValleyCare Stanford, CA
"The coaching questions are so valuable. I can’t wait to ask every patient: “How can I best support you right now? It’s such a simple way to understand her my patient's beliefs and needs."
"I thought it was interesting to evaluate perspectives; doula vs. nursing and how the two can work together as a team... I learned multiple tools that can be applied to the daily nursing practice of caring for the labor patient. Communicating differently with patients and their support system when a plan for childbirth needs to be determined on admission, and providing options and encouraging a smooth transition through labor became easier with the coaching strategies. I thought the workshop was great for team-building and bonding amongst staff."
