You'll get: A pair of one-page handouts (2 pages total) in printer-friendly versions, The Empowered Consumer: Communication in the Hospital and The Empowered Consumer: Hospital Policy
Why you'll love them: Written in plain language, these two, one-page handouts are jam-packed with inside info to help parents understand their rights within the hospital and how to use them. The handouts include tips for communicating with the birth team, an explanation of what hospital policy is and common examples, and a small BRAND (benefits/risks/alternatives) reminder to cut out and tape to the back of a phone or wallet. They are excellent references to bring right into the hospital with you.
What you can do with them: Take to prenatal meetings and appointments with clients, physicians, and midwives. Put copies in client folders or your reference binder. Print out copies for maternity fairs, doctors' offices, or waiting rooms. Bring a copy to the hospital during labor for quick reference.
