The Stages of Labor: A Visual Guide for Teens 3rd Edition

Inform and empower young parents with a video designed just for them



This all-new video program was carefully crafted to engage your young adult learners. Since teens learn best when they can relate to the material, these video clips sensitively and modestly feature the real birth stories of four young mothers and their partners or support people. Clear animation of the labor process aids their understanding of the stages of labor. After viewing the program, teen parents will feel more informed and empowered for their own birth experience.

What’s new in the 3rd edition?
