Amsterdam, NL – 2-Day Spinning Babies® Workshop with Jennifer Walker (in English) – Oct 4-5, 2019
October 4 @ 9:00 am - October 5 @ 5:00 pm CEST
Spinning Babies® Workshop
Join me in my home city at the BiA Centre. I will be teaching in English this time, so international people are welcome.
This course introduces the Spinning Babies® approach to pregnancy comfort, labor progress and easier birth. Participants learn fresh solutions for long and/or posterior labor, labor dystocia and labor pain. Spinning Babies presents a new perspective on the anatomy of fetal positioning and birth, and applies stretch and jiggle techniques for body balancing. Spinning Babies® Balance, Gravity and Movement℠
After this workshop you will be able to:
- Demonstrate fetal movement of rotation and descent
- Explain how uterosacral ligaments may influence fetal position
- Design a daily pregnancy protocol (activity routine) for pregnant people to follow
- Differentiate a progressing from a non-progressing labor
- Apply a maternal position to increase each diameter of each level of the pelvis (inlet, mid, outlet).
- And much, much more!
