WaterBirth Safety Masterclass

This comprehensive, evidence-based safety training will enable you to quickly transition an oiled/aromatic labor space to a newborn-safe birth space. Discover the transdermal absorption and inhalation safety strategies that are more easily cleansed and cleared than the traditional application methods along with coaching techniques to guide mothers who often use oils without an awareness of how an oiled labor space can affect the physiological transition of the newborn.

The dose is affected by absorption rates of oils in labor, which is a major reason even experienced oil users have reactions in labor. There’s also a wild card category that’s important to know about: levels I & IV Allergic Contact Dermatitis (immediate & delayed hypersensitivity). Even if the dose and absorption are safe, the mother can still have a reaction between her immune system and the oil. You’ll learn what a reaction might look and feel like (it’s signs and symptoms), how long it will most likely manifest for, which types of reactions get better with time and which ones get worse. The different types of reactions also respond to different first aid measures—so all proper first aid training should start here: with the causes, types, and signs of adverse reaction.
