About the workshop

Questions about the Spinning Babies or other workshop? A Spinning Babies Workshop has many visual aids to explain step-by-step the way babies and pelvises interact!

Gail Tully, The Spinning Babies Lady, describes her workshops and answers questions about certificates, refunds, CEUs, babies attending, and why there are no discounts. 

  • Spinning Babies
  • Belly Mapping
  • Resolving Shoulder Dystocia
  • Breech Basics

"All these years it has been like a puzzle for me. Like I sort of understood everything, but it was not clear to me in many ways. Well, I finally had that ahha moment, after your class, going home and reading everything over... It was like I had put on glasses that I didn't ever know I needed."  - Doula Christina Carino-Forrest, New York City

Where Gail and Spinning Babies has been

 

Find Spinning Babies' Sponsors and Hostesses. They may help you find a provider or "Baby Spinner" in your area. A "Baby Spinner" is our cute name for a doula, nurse or midwife who has taken the class and enjoys helping moms learn activities to help their babies rotate. "Baby Spinner" is not a  title of competency or certification.

 
Rachel Sieman, CNM: "One of the best workshops I've ever attended! I highly recommend it if you ever get the chance!"

"Dear Gail, I attended your Spinning Babies day at the Active Birth Centre in London this June, which I found very interesting, and couldn't wait to try out some of the techniques. 2 weeks later I successfully turned an OP asynclitic baby to direct OA when labour stalled at 7cm. The baby wasn't born in 3 contractions - but within the next couple of hours after doing the side lying release to a VBAC mother at home. 

Both the mother, my midwifery partner and myself are very grateful and send our heartfelt thanks to you for working out whats happening in the pelvis, and setting out to explain it to others so we can help women have babies the way they want.
Many thanks."  - Viv Gray, Midwife

"Hi Gail,
 
I was at this workshop and I just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful and inspiring day.
 
 
I think one of the important things for me, and I know this might sound a bit odd, is that you showed me how much I didn't know, too. So, today, I have mapped out for myself a little programme of learning that I want to achieve, and that I feel will help me to really understand  why and when the techniques you showed us can work most effectively.
 
For me, this is exactly why your workshop was so good. I can see that it was just the beginning, and you have inspired me to pursue the topic and improve my learning until I am sure that I am confident in using these techniques.
 
I wish you a safe trip back to America."
 
Many thanks,
Kath Harbisher
