The aim of this project was to create supplemental education modules to assist in the labor and delivery sessions, Sessions 5 and 6, of the CenteringPregnancy curriculum hosted at Chula Vista Medical Plaza in order to allow participants that are monolingual in Spanish to better understand the processes of labor and delivery. The activities already in place from the curriculum made assumptions about patient understandings of their own anatomy, what uterine contractions are, and stages of labor. By designing education tools that were more visual, barriers in language that prevent understanding of educational content could be overcome. Most importantly, participants could feel empowered in their pregnancies by understanding the physiological changes their bodies would experience during labor and delivery.
