Boston (Jamaica Plain) MA Spinning Babies Workshop with Lorenza Holt
May 21 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Join Spinning Babies Approved Trainer Lorenza Holt for a Spinning Babies Workshop!
The three principles of Spinning Babies are Balance, Gravity and Movement. This workshop will teach you ways to encourage and support pregnant parents in having more comfortable pregnancies and easier labors by using the Spinning Babies approach.
Spinning Babies will teach you about
• The anatomy and physiology of the pregnant uterus and the soft tissues that support the pelvic structures.
• Belly mapping is a fun and effective way that encourages parents to connect with how their babies are positioned inside them during the last weeks of pregnancy.
• Daily and weekly activities pregnant parents can practice to promote more comfort in pregnancy, overall suppleness in the pelvis, and as a result, promote easier births
• 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.
Spinning Babies will help you know when to do what and why, so that you can assist a failure to progress by using techniques that can help a baby to engage, rotate and descend through the three levels of the pelvis.
