Pam England uses the drawing to help expecting families explore their emotions, beliefs, and understanding about pregnancy and birth.
She may start class and give them a word to draw like pain. Then after teaching a few classes the participants will draw again using the same word. The pictures are compared to see if the information they have learned changed their image.
There are so many other ways to use drawings. Check your local library or purchase Birthing from Within: An Extra-Ordinary Guide to Childbirth Preparation
