In a childbirth educator training I’m taking, we made pain scale alternatives to the ones they have at the hospital. You know the ones? The happy faces turning into sad faces with numbers attached to them? In case you’re not a fan of those, we made some alternatives. And I got a little carried away and made four! I thought I’d share them with you in case any of them is useful.
You can save or print these (there’s a front and a back for each) and use them in any situation, but particularly labor.
And, if you don’t like Parks and Rec, alcohol, the color red, or cute dogs, you can always make your own pain scale. If you do this, please comment below! I’d love to see what you came up with.
