This is a quick-reference guide of pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum, and breastfeeding. Esali Birth’s Perinatal Pocket Guide is a must-have for any expecting mother, birth partner, and entire birth team. This simple pocket guide will walk you through the most important aspects of the perinatal period including health and nutrition, exercise and well-being, labor expectations including when to go to the hospital, contraction timing, common interventions and their risks as well as common variations to biological birth. Educators can include this in student packets – and expecting parents can purchase for their labor bags. An electronic version is available for download as well.
This unique tool is for educators to use in the classroom, and expecting couples to use as a study guide between classes. This introduces a new exciting level to the learning capabilities in perinatal education.
The game consists of a board, timer, team pawns, and a set of 64 cards. We kept efficiency in mind, as well as low-cost for those educators who want to provide modern teaching techniques without spending all their money.
The basic card deck has 4 categories: Prenatal Nutrition, Breastfeeding, Perinatal Positions, & General Labor & Birth topics. Each category has 16 cards that can be used separately or in conjunction with one another.
Within the categories, there are 4 different “strategies” of learning, which include: Reflect (trivia questions), React (charades/demonstration), Render (drawing), and Reason (a combination allowing the card reader to choose between strategies). This method not only creates more interaction and interest, it touches on various aspects of logic, allowing students to retain the information more effectively.
The cards can also easily be used as a simple teaching tool for discussion without the board. Many of the cards have room for additional customization from individual teachers. The cards also indicate a number, instead of using dice, to advance – or to tally when board-play is not desired.
