Really liked the course, I have seen the peanut balls before, but didn't know the way to used them.

Information about use of the peanut ball as an additional strategy to aid a laboring person's comfort and progress in labor is always welcome. I believe more current resources than were provided would add both new ideas for successful use of the peanut ball in labor as well as new evidence supportive of its use.
Utilizing them in Lamaze Prepared Childbirth classes is just perfect in so many ways!

Unfortunately for me, this course was a bit challenging to navigate vs.any other courses that I have taken through the Lamaze Online Education Library.

Andrea Lythgoe, LCCE and doula, takes a look at the peanut ball as a tool for promoting labor progress for women resting in bed or with an epidural. Many more facilities are making this new tool available to laboring women. Childbirth educators will benefit by understanding how to teach peanut ball use to families in the classroom and those professionals who attend births will want to know about the benefits and proper usage as well. Andrea shares the research that is available along with the personal perspectives of those who have used them firsthand. - Sharon Muza, Science & Sensibility Community Manager.
