Breaking through the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome with Prenatal Coaching – Webinar



Learn how to coach your birth client to prevent the Fear-Tension-Pain Syndrome from becoming a Failure-To-Progress in childbirth.   

The British obstetrician Grantly Dick-Read firstly introduced the Fear-Tension-Pain response associated with childbirth, in his second book called Childbirth without Fear, published in 1942. He is considered the father of childbirth education and is known for spreading the ideas of teaching women about the process of childbirth in preparation for the birth.  Since then, many generations of childbirth educators and birth support figures shared this revelation with expectant couples, taught them everything they found important about birth and provided different tools for coping with labor strains. The problem is that teaching and providing knowledge about childbirth is not enough in order to lead a change of perception, and facilitate a new response to labor pain. This requires individual coaching.  In this webinar, we share some of the most effective coaching strategies which will allow you to conduct the coaching conversation around labor pain and the fear of it, and help your clients adopt a better concept that is serving them better.

The Fear-Tension-Pain response (FTP) leads to another FTP- Failure-To-Progress, and that’s why we think you should become an FTP fighter! Failure- to- Progress is the downfall towards birth management and the opening of the cascade effect of medical interventions in childbirth. Coaching your client in order to prevent the first FTP (Fear-Tension-Pain) will prevent the last one, and will keep your client on the safe path to a healthy birth.
