Abstract:

Teens present a unique challenge for the childbirth educator. A committed educator must find creative teaching strategies that will ease an adolescent's tension and provide a safe environment where a teen can “own” the message of her body's ability to give birth. The author of this column presents one of her own strategies for teaching relaxation techniques to adolescents.
