There is quite a difference in how I teach you to resolve a stuck shoulder than what you learned elsewhere. Testimonies below:
You learn to assess how the shoulders are lying, meaning where are they according to the diameter and the depth of the pelvis. When you know the way the shoulder(s) are stuck, you can more quickly match the proper technique to save time... and maybe a life.
Fear dissolves as you go step by step. Yet, you will learn far more than a formula! That's why this is so well praised.
Midwives all over the country tell me this is working and they are no longer afraid. It doesn't mean it will be easy, but you can have learned what is going on inside the mother and what to do to get baby out quickly. Save a life. Get this DVD.

Praise for Resolving Shoulder Dystocia
Thank you taking the time at MANA to teach me how to turn a Shoulder Dystocia baby the right way. I was able to save a very stuck baby yesterday without a panic because my hands knew what to look for and do! My gratitude can not be described with words!
-Midwife Sara Bolger.

"really hates shoulder dystocia. However, I hate it much less than before I took Gail Tully's dystocia course, probably the most useful CME [Continuing Medical Education] I've ever done. Baby is great, and great big..."
Later, Dr. Rapacz said, "I'll buy a copy, Gail, and probably an extra for the residents, although really there is no substitute for doing the workshop. Still, a DVD is a start for some and a review for me. Highly recommended all you birthy folks out there!!"

"Just wanted to tell you that I am so, so, so happy I took the Resolving ShoulderDystocia workshop in Richmond this past winter! I had a 4 1/2 minute SD a week ago with an unexpected 11lb 6 oz baby! I went for that posterior arm while having mom go from a half leaning, half standing position to a knee-chest position. ...couldn't have done it without having your thoughtful instruction. Mom and baby are doing great. I am still recovering because that baby gave me a run for my money...but I am celebrating!
"The DVD is fabulous, I really love it. I've only ever attended one shoulder dystocia birth, a 13 min. double shoulder inlet dystocia. [Later, L. C. wrote Baby and mom are fine now. Baby is a happy and healthy 3 year old!] I feel like the DVD has given me some really good tools that I didn't have before. Thanks for making it!"
