If you are a Certified Professional Midwife, you may earn 2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by watching the DVD and taking the post test. Buy the MEAC CEU option now ($25) or read more to decide... THE RSD DVD is out of print. You can use these CEUs if you watch your friend's copy of the DVD. Get a group of 5 CPMs and get a discount on CEUs. Buy 4 and get 5 CEU certificates when CPMs register (simply by listing names and the date of the gathering) as a group and attaching the posttests to the email. Easy right?

The Midwifery Education Accreditation Council (MEAC) has awarded 2 Continuing Education Units awarded for Resolving Shoulder Dystocia.

Ms. Ananda Integre from the MEAC Application desk said this when she reviewed my application for your RSD DVD CEUs, "Your application looks great, and your DVDs have juicy Shakti."

So, you've got the word, "Juicy Shakti." I'm sure that's a good thing. Makes me want to get out my blender. Seriously, though, the MEAC office gets a lot of applications through, so I was thrilled to receive this complement and thrilled to be able to share it with you for your confidence in this DVD. 

Simply purchase the CEU processing here on Paypal with a credit card or your PayPal balance. You can take the post test before or after you pay for the processing.


1. Download the post test now. 2011 rsd dvd post test.pdf [Adobe Acrobat PDF - 64.88 KB]  Fill it out after and even during watching the Resolving Shoulder Dystocia DVD.

2. Get the post test back to Gail Tully, by scanning it or mailing it with your full contact information. 

      Gail Tully will process your post test, store the information about your successful completion, and send documentation to you:

3. You will receive your RSD DVD Certification of Completion in the mail. 

The Certification of Completion is the form that you will copy so you have one in your records. When you recertify with MEAC, you will send the original on to MEAC along with all other certification forms and proofs.

"I LOVED your video. It was SO helpful. In my training, I did not receive the understanding of what the shoulders are doing for all the other types of dystocia-ONLY the unilateral, anterior dystocia. So, THANK YOU! What a brilliant, logical way to approach this complication." --M K, CPM


Buy the RSD DVD alone or with the CEU processing fee paid for up front. If you are charged for shipping when you buy the RSD CEU processing alone, you will be refunded as soon as I can get to the computer to do it (a week or less). Sorry, I fight with the PayPal buttons to offer things without shipping fees, but I can't figure it out yet.

Email gail @ Spinning Babies . com with any questions.


If you don't pass the test, you may take the test a second time, and a third time, and as many times as you need, at no further cost. 

To pass in one try:  Read the post test first, review the post test as you watch the entire DVD, and take the post test immediately after viewing the DVD. 

I suggest you watch the DVD a second time when you are waiting for an upcoming birth (especially if you are new or if you anticipate a possible shoulder dystocia) because your mind will process the information uniquely for that mother. 

Then, watch the types and techniques portion of the RSD DVD when you have been at a "sticky shoulder" or a shoulder dystocia to review the variations of shoulder dystocia types.

I have confidence in my midwife sisters and am so delighted to add this DVD to our birth bag of skills.

Spinning Babies; Daily Essentials Video

Sarah Longacre and Gail Tully present a Spinning Babies and Blooma Yoga collaboration in a three video series for pregnant women preparing for easier childbirth through body balancing, maternal positioning and yoga.Together Sarah Longacre, international prenatal yoga instructor and birth doula, and Gail Tully, yours truly, created a unique instructional video for flexibility and comfort in pregnancy and to support better fetal positioning in time for birth.

Here are daily activities for stretching and balancing a pregnant body. Start early in pregnancy to prepare to make the most space for baby's best birth position and the most ease for mother's opening during the birth process.

We begin the program for women of average flexibility (or just plain stiff to start with) and beginner tips.  But soon, you'll be ready to move freely! That's when Sarah brings the stretches all together into her easy to follow, playful, sensual, and flowing "Blooma Style" daily routine.

Sarah's "dance of opening," moves joints and ligaments to come alive under the delightful melody and percussions of Carin Vagle. This isn't about core strength; its about freedom of movement and creating space in the body.

Sarah plays along with Gail's little game of "Flashlight" to show pregnant women how to evaluate their own posture and positions. Smart Maternal Positioning helps baby snuggle their backs into the front of the womb for Optimal Fetal Positioning. 


Daily Essentials includes tips for using Maternal Positioning around the house. Actual scenes in the bedroom, living room and even the bathroom. Practical instruction like no other video. You will be sleeping more comfortably immediately when using these tips. Within a week or two many pregnancy discomforts of the pelvis and lower back may be reduced when all these nurturing techniques are integrated into your daily lifestyle.

Spinning Babies and Blooma Yoga-- a natural collaborative!
