Testimonials

I just love the Spinning Babies® [Workshop]. I love that it is such simple maneuvers with huge impacts. But wanted to let you know that I love and noticed your wording. I have found that in healthcare, especially maternity, talk is often about how others have done things “wrong” and have done or NOT done this and that. It is often accusatory, and often unconsciously by the speaker. We have just grown up in a culture of blame. When you speak in class about things we can do to help laboring families, you are NEVER accusatory, or that we should do this better or that better or we’ve been doing this wrong. You just talk in such a positive light about how to make changes, meet families where they are, and improve birth. So, I just wanted you to know that I really noticed your conscious efforts in wording and I appreciate you.

Gail Tully’s Spinning Babies® addresses and answers many questions regarding fetal malposition and malpresentation and slow or stalled labor. Her wisdom, knowledge of maternal fetal anatomy and original visual aids, will open your mind and enhance your skills in understanding, preventing and correcting many of these problems.

Penny Simkin
PT, CD(DONA)

Spinning Babies® was the best training I’ve taken in ten years of practice – it has revolutionized my approach to working with birthing women. I feel so strongly about this training: no one who supports women in birth should be without it.
