Traditional practice during second stage labor is for nurses and providers to direct women to push to a count of ten while holding their breath, three times with each contraction. This practice is not supported in literature and may contribute to the escalating cesarean section and operative vaginal delivery rates. Laboring down is an evidence-based approach to second stage labor. Decades of research have identified laboring down as a safe alternative to directed pushing. Implementing hospital policies that incorporate the practice of laboring down may result in improved labor satisfaction, decreased maternal and fetal risks, decreased cesarean section and operative delivery rates, and a reduction in hospital costs. Despite a growing body of evidence which supports the use of laboring down during second stage labor, women at a small community hospital in Alaska are denied the ability to choose to labor down until they feel an urge to push prior to the start of active pushing. The purpose of this Clinical Doctorate Capstone Project was to educate the obstetrical providers and nurses at this community hospital, and solicit support for a change in current policy. Benner’s Novice to Expert Model, Knowles’ Adult Learner Model, and Lewin’s Change Theory were used to create the integration model and the development, implementation, and evaluation of this project. Following the implementation of an educational program, a quasi-experimental pre and post test design was used to compare learning and willingness to support policy change. Project evaluation revealed that the providers and nurses were willing to support a policy change to incorporate laboring down practices.
