Gail offers one-hour phone consultations to help you plan for your upcoming birth or address a past birth.

Gail is not a doctor nor a therapist and cannot help with medical management questions or mental health treatment. She can offer an experienced ear, a compassionate heart and insights to your situation. She is practical without being jugemental and pragmatic without being ideological. But she'll tell you as she sees it.

1. Click on the payment link and pay for the consultation hour.

2. Receive an email from her with time choices within the next week. A delay may be possible when Gail is traveling where internet is scarce or her time is being in classes from dawn to night and traveling. That's monthly but not every week.

  • Please tell Gail in your reply what your time zone is! We have to coordinate times.
  • Please tell Gail 2 sentences to decribe your goal for the phone call.
  • Please tell Gail a brief description of your births, your situation, the background for the call
  • Please give Gail 1-3 times you are available
  • You can email birth records and a written paragraph giving me permission to read them.


3. Call Gail at the hour agreed upon. A back up time may be chosen in case you or Gail have a birth or a time conflict.

4. If Gail recommends a follow up phone call, there will be no additional charge for the first 30 minutes. There will be a $25 dollar charge for the second 30 minutes or portion there of.

5. Skype might be an option instead of the phone. Send Gail your Skype name in your email and she will send a request for being a Skype friend/contact that you will click on to accept before we can talk.


In person meetings are sometimes available in Gail's Minneapolis/St. Paul area or where she is traveling for workshops (see Calendar). A one-hour meeting payment is made on the website at the time of scheduling.

A full refund is given if Gail is not available for the first time choice or the second "rain date" time choice. You could also email Gail to arrange for times first, before you go through the payment process.

No refund is available once the phone call or meeting takes place. If you are disappointed in the phone call there is still no refund once the phone call has taken place. If you cancel the call 24 hours in advance or more there is no charge. Within 24 hours there is no refund. If Gail wonders where you are because you miss the call, you will have to begin again with Step 1, Payment.

Phone consultations give women a chance to process their upcoming or previous birth experience. This can be considered a peer support conversation. One-to-one is often an empowering and nurturing experience with some personal growth challenges to help create a new opportunity for healing, awareness and to make our dreams come true.

Think about what you want to discuss, and write out your questions and needs. Gail will want to know how many weeks pregnant you are, if you are pregnant. She'll want to know what city you are in and which child this is for your or which children's birth you are discussing (first, second, how many years apart). It will be helpful to tell her the weights of babies, lengths of labors and whether we're talking about a VBAC, a hospital/birth center/home birth, etc. Any records you might scan and email are not fully protected. Even though I wouldn't share them and will delete them after our meeting, because of email, I am not able to protect our privacy, yours or mine, on any thing emailed.

Your call is confidential and you will be respected.

On the set of Parent ClassWith Gail’s easy instruction and visual aids, Spinning Babies Parent Class provides you detailed preparation with Fantastic Four and maternal positioning in pregnancy. 

We compare labor patterns to tell the labor in which no intervention is needed compared to one that would benefit from these gentle techniques.

Welcoming the baby together


Parents can take shared responsibility with their care providers for what to do to resume labor progress when there’s a stall in labor.


Parent Class video production scene

This 2-hour video will help the parent who wants to know more than what is covered in a usual childbirth class:

  • Helping baby engage when baby is still high after labor begins,
  • Posterior Pelvic Tilt for opening the pelvic brim,
  • Sidelying Release and the Lunge to overcome a stall at 5 - 8 cm,
  • Quick reminder on pushing positions,
  • Real consultations on how to turn babies


Lauren does the breech tilt off the couch on her ironing board to flip her breech.

Watch consultations on how to turn babies:

A woman working in an office in the building where we were filming was pregnant with her baby lying sideways (called a transverse lie) late in pregnancy.


We suggested the forward-leaning inversion and asked her to come and bring her husband the next day and be filmed to see how baby was lying. See her do a forward-leaning inversion. Her baby was head down at her next prenatal exam with her doctor!

See a couple with a breech baby do both the forward-leaning inversion and the breech tilt.

She had an easy external cephalic version the next day as scheduled with her OB. The techniques may have contributed to the ease of the ECV.

Spinning Babies Parent Class is perfect for parents who want to move beyond the basic childbirth education class. Order yours today!

Licensing Agreements for Public Showings

Dear Birth and Birth Website Keepers,
We are formulating a licensing agreement for paid licensees to offer public showings for Daily Essential videos. Please be patient a little longer to achieve a legal license for a public showing of our exercise video.
Spinning Babies: Parent Class is quite an involved video. To view, stop and practice with a public group implies advanced birth and bodywork knowledge. An Approved Spinning Babies Trainer standing is required. Any public viewing implies a curriculum for a Spinning Babies class. To do that, approval of your skill base is necessary to present Parent Class publicly.

Here's why. To present the techniques in person, implies you will have the skills to determine when the alignment is correct or incorrect, and how to correct the person's stance, hold and pressure. You'd need to answer what side effects or advantages are being expressed. Facilitating parents to do myofascial techniques will require more information to answer questions than is included on the video.

 A person showing the video would be assumed the ability to present Spinning Babies. You'd need to answer questions that weren't answered on the video, as they would come up. Mostly, there are concepts and philosophies that differ from the common birth knowledge and require an advanced and transformed approach to how we "see" birth and how we serve to solve labor challenges. For these reasons licensing is not available for Spinning Babies: Parent Class.

To facilitate a public showing or class using Spinning Babies: Parent Class  so would require knowledge of my approach to birth necessarily evidenced by becoming a Spinning Babies Approved Trainer.

Becoming approved by Spinning Babies to present and represent Spinning Babies to a group is an approximately 2-year process beginning with attendance at two Spinning Babies Workshops. See more in About Spinning Babies.

Spinning Babies on Sense and Sensibility


Hi Gail, 

I want to say thank you! A first time mother's posterior birth went well [with] a short labor. Membranes ruptured about 8am. Her labor started about 6pm: 3cm dilated; LOP station -1; cervix soft and effaced. 

We did rebozo sifting, sidelying release, abdominal lift and tuck, standing sacral release, Dip the hip, circling on the birth ball, lunge and she birthed at 9.58pm in sidelying position with hands around the husband's neck.

Baby's head showed more molding on the right side. What you taught in the workshop and website made a difference!
