Terms to Know

Hydrotherapy is immersion in warm water during labor. It can be used during any part of labor, including early labor and active labor, as well as the late (“pushing”) phase. Hydrotherapy is offered as a comfort measure, providing relaxation and pain relief. Hydrotherapy is different from a water birth. During a water birth, the baby is delivered underwater in a special water birth tub. Hydrotherapy, on the other hand, is used during labor – but not during delivery. 

The peanut ball is shaped like a peanut and fits snugly between the woman’s legs so that both legs are maintained as opening the pelvic outlet to increase the progress of labour and facilitate descent of the fetal head. Using position changes during labour to enhance widening of the pelvic outlet can be beneficial but a woman who has an epidural is limited in the number of positions she can adopt.

Comprehensive central network monitoring system for obstetrical care. Allows providers and nurses to monitor all laboring patients fetal care in one location.
