What is Spinning Babies?

Spinning Babies is an approach to optimize the physical relationship between the bodies of the mother and baby for the easing of childbirth. Spinning Babies is a new paradigm that takes clues from baby’s position and station for natural, physiological solutions. Try it in any birth setting, childbirth program, or pain management plan.
  • Align the uterus so baby can curl and enter the pelvis as a small, compact – and more active participant.
  • Release tight ligaments or muscles which may pull or twist may relieve pelvic pain now or discomfort during birth.
  • Support what’s loose in womb or pelvis with a pregnancy belt.
  • Open the pelvis to let baby move down during the birth process.
  • Share birth wisdom with parents and providers in ever deepening layers of understanding birth
Begin with activities to support the range of motion and alignment, to reach a healthy mix of mobility and stability for the pelvis. Comfort and function return to the body.

Every day I hear happy results:

  • Back labor eased
  • Breech babies that flip head down
  • Transverse (sideways) babies suddenly turn head down – cesarean canceled!
  • Posterior babies (sunny-side-up) rotate and/or descend
  • First labors occurring regularly in 8 hours or less
  • Cesareans canceled outside the OR; baby already born!
  • More natural births and VBACs around the world!

Together we notice that when women restore the balance in their muscles and alignment in the pelvis, birth goes better.

Asynclitism and the Doula Scope of Practice

Last week I talked about the nurse or midwife learning the baby’s tipped presentation by the cervical exam. Thicker cervix into one side, the side the head remains deeper on. Thinner cervix shares the side that the head presses further out along. Below is an email I...

“I believe childbirth can be instinctual, pleasurable, and easier. But what, you ask, about fear and pain in labor?  How come 1 in 3 Americans birth by cesarean if birth is so natural? Could it be that something was missing?

“As a midwife, I’ve developed a new approach to address fetal position and overall comfort. The result? Progress in labor and less pain in childbirth.” is for parents, providers, doulas, and childbirth educators. Online since 2002.
