In this course, you will learn about the five “P”s of labor (passenger, passage, powers, placenta, and psychology) and how they relate to the birthing process. You will also learn about other factors that are related to each individual “P,” such as the different categories of pelvic anatomy, primary and secondary powers, and cardinal mechanisms of labor.

We will also discuss important psychological considerations to take into account during both the labor process and the postpartum period.
