EmerGently Birth

This course was originally created for MOV Birth home birth clients to learn the very basics of unattended birth if a skilled care provider doesn't arrive or a mother can't make it to her planned birth location and for a small insight into what a midwife might be assessing through pregnancy and labor.  Utilize not only the video seminar, but also the additional resources linked within this page to increase your knowledge and confidence.  Anyone that may be providing support to you during your birth should review this course with you.  Remember to read through any of the slides show and pause and think about what they may mean.  Take notes.  Pause the video after I explain the section and discuss - practicing any of the techniques explained - before moving on to the next topic.  This is a lot of information to fully grasp and feeling confident in just a few settings.  Don't forget to stay aligned and vary your position while listening and break up the content over a few days to fully retain the information.

THE CONTENT WITHIN THIS COURSE IS BASIC, DOES NOT COVER ADVANCED MIDWIFERY SKILLS, AND DOES NOT REPLACE THE CARE OF A SKILLED PROVIDER, PERSONAL STUDY, AND RESEARCH OR TAKE INTO ACCOUNT ALL OF THE MANY VARIATIONS THAT CAN OCCUR DURING ANY PREGNANCY, LABOR, BIRTH, POSTPARTUM OR BEYOND.  NEVER HESITATE TO CALL 911 OR TRANSPORT, EVEN IF IT IS JUST FOR AN INSTINCTUAL FEELING WITH NO OTHER SIGNS OF COMPLICATION.

Note: This course is intended as an addition to a full perinatal education course.  If you have any questions about the clarity of the information, please ask rather than assume.  To learn about normal birth, review the complete Esali Online Birth Class and the Labor & Birth Overview or schedule an in-person class series.
