Amsterdam, NL Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Jennifer Walker – Feb 27, 2019 (in English)
February 27 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm UTC+1
Spinning Babies® Workshop with Jennifer Walker Spinning Babies Approved Trainer
This workshop is for professionals who work with birthing families. Specialities include: midwives, nurses, obstetricians, childbirth educators, doulas, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists etc.
The Three Principles of Spinning Babies are: Balance, Gravity and Movement.
Learn how to encourage and support pregnant parents have more comfortable pregnancies and laboring parents having easier labors by using the Spinning Babies principles and techniques.
Spinning Babies promotes better fetal positioning during pregnancy and labor through the use of specific techniques that help soften and balance pelvic ligaments and muscles that support the pregnant uterus and pelvic floor. We relate pelvic alignment and mobility to an easier and shorter birth.
Spinning Babies gives your work greater success by teaching you specific techniques. You will learn to know when to do what- and why – to help baby engage, descend and rotate through the pelvis. You will practice techniques for when labor stalls due to lack of engagement or transverse arrest for example.
Spinning Babies will teach you about:
- The anatomy and physiology of the pregnant uterus and the soft tissues that support the pelvic structures
- The effects of an occiput posterior labor
- Assessing what a stalled labor pattern is telling us
- What techniques we can apply to ease labor progress through the three levels of the pelvis
- How a doula, within her scope of practice, can use the Spinning Babies principles
Please arrive 15 minutes before the workshop begins. Wear comfortable clothes as we will be actively doing activities. If you have a rebozo, please bring it. Babies in slings or arms welcome.
LUNCH will be pot-luck: which means everyone brings one dish to share (salad, quiche, dips, spreads, bread etc.). The space has a lovely seating area so it is nice to have lunch together and chat.
You will receive a confirmation of attendance. No video recording and please use any photos taken appropriately.
