My name is Talia and I am a third year nursing student at UPenn pursuing a career as a Nurse-Midwife. It was great to meet everyone during the training weekend! Here is a demonstration of some birthing comfort measures that I learned: https://youtu.be/plkh0Kl7Bxg

    Hi Talia,

    Congratulations on completing your doula training!

    I’ve been a doula for 7 years, and worked with PALS for the first 3 years. I moved to the West Coast for a midwifery apprenticeship, and now I’m in nursing school to eventually become a CNM. I didn’t take Debra’s training, so my way of doing things might be a little different. Here’s my feedback for you:

    I love the professional presentation of your video!
    When doing the rebozo belly sifting, make sure the rebozo is evenly spread around the belly from top (just under the breasts) to bottom, not bunched up.
    Double hip squeeze - make sure you take time to find where your hands should go. Locate the anterior superior iliac crests, and place your palms just inferior to that spot.

    Good luck on your journey to becoming a midwife!

    Marcy
