In this 24th episode of The Birth Geeks podcast we talk all about prodromal labor! Having both dealt with prodromal labor personally and professionally, we know just how awful it can be. We discuss signs that it might be prodromal labor, reasons it could be happening, and 3 different coping techniques they might want to try. We actually talk about this so much with our clients, that we decided to create a free handout for childbirth professionals to share if you would like. You can download the handout for free here. We give a big shout-out to Spinning Babies for their amazing resources regarding stalled or stop/start labor too. This episode is short and sweet at around 20 minutes only.
We always try to include a section in our episodes about research and resources for childbirth professionals too. This 24th episode, I disI specifically refer to 2 research studies in this section, both about Hyperemesis Gravidarum. This is a link to the genetic screening study for HG. This is a link to the prospective study on the effects of cannabis on HG for the pregnant people that I also reference. The app that I discuss from the HER Foundation can be found here if you would like to read more about it.
