The Road Map for Labour Chart was created by Penny Simkin as a fun way to teach expectant parents and others about what to expect during labour. The display shows normal labour as a journey that begins with early labour and ends with birth. The journey includes three paths: a winding yellow brick road with twists, turns, and no fixed timeline; a detour for back pain, which is a longer, rougher road that eventually rejoins the yellow brick road; and the epidural highway, which represents the choice to have an epidural for pain relief. Each path ends with the birth of the baby. The map includes illustrations of a variety of comfort measures to use as labour progresses. An ideal teaching tool for childbirth classes and a wonderful addition to birthing rooms. Comes with a detailed presenter’s guide.
