Made and designed by midwife Pam Weaver, this wonderful addition to the birth bag helps the birthing mother to focus and have more control over her second stage! It can also help dads and other birth partners to feel more involved in the process.
The Labor Link is a rope device approximately three feet long with clear, vinyl handles. The rope body between the handles is covered with a colorful fabric ‘scrunchy’. You can write identification information on the back of the tag. The Labor Link comes with it’s own mesh laundry bag that also doubles as a carry-bag. The whole device is completely washable and is designed to be used time and again.
The Labor Link has great potential for shortening second stage by helping the mother focus her pushes and get the most out of each one. Birth attendants know full well the benefit of an efficient second stage. The eye contact with whoever partners with her on the other end of the Labor Link is invaluable for her emotional support.
The Labor Link is also a great tool for childbirth education, and assists with demonstrating upright birthing positions.
Each rope is unique, so please make your selection by rope colour.
