I am happy to be offering this one day workshop of birthing wisdom. Midwives, doulas, birth educators, chiropractors, doctors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, pregnancy bodyworkers, acupuncturists, prenatal yoga instructors and alternative care-providers who assist women in pregnancy and childbirth are welcome.

The workshop will be filled with easy-to-integrate information, and hands-on practice about how to apply the Spinning Babies®️ approach to birthing families in the community or in clinical and hospital settings.

Where dilation stalls, rotation solves! Spinning Babies®️ reduces unnecessary cesareans with a paradigm-shifting approach to physiological birth. Spinning Babies®️ goes beyond fetal positioning with our contribution to addressing all labor progress issues. Revolutionize your practice!

After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Facilitate comfort in pregnancy and ease in childbirth for your clients
  • Improve fetal position with techniques for uterine ligaments and pelvic muscles
  • Identify when to take action to avoid a long labors or cesareans
  • Use fresh solutions for long and/or posterior labor, labor dystocia and labor pain
  • Resolve labor stalls with Spinning Babies®️ Three Levels Solutions℠
  • And much, much more!

Spinning Babies®️ offers the world’s first complete system of matching birth positions and labor progress techniques to “Where’s Baby?” in the pelvis. Find out how you can change the effective size of the pelvis.

Food: A simple morning & afternoon tea will be provided. Bring your own lunch.

Clothing: Wear easy loose comfortable clothing as we will be practicing exercises on massage tables. No jeans please! It is difficult to feel anatomical landmarks through tight or thick clothing.

Extras: Covid 19 Measures:

  • social distancing rules will be adhered to
  • hand sanitiser and masks will be available for use. Gloves and plastic aprons (or byo) will be available for hands on work
  • BYO hand towel for hand washing/drying of hands and sheet/sarong for the massage table
  • hands-on skills will be practiced in 1 block during the training.

If you own a rebozo/long shawl then please bring it with you, as well as a cushion/pillow. Babies in arms (4 months and under) are welcome.

Parking: Parking is challenging! There is parking around the venue but it is for 2hr time slots and payment is necessary. If you want to park and pay every 2hrs it is easier to do so if you have the ‘PayStay’ App. East Melbourne is notorious for it’s parking inspectors.

There is a car park at 94 – 106 Grey Street, East Melbourne. It is pricey – from memory it is approx $30 for the day.

The best travel option is to take the train to Jolimont Railway Station. It is a hop skip over to the venue. Trams also run up Wellington Road and Victoria Pde with very short walks to the venue.

Cancellation Policy: Full Refunds will be issued for illness up to the day of the workshop.

Refunds (or reasons other than illness), will be given up to two weeks before the workshop. Doulas and midwives who are called to a birth and notify me (phone or email) by 7am the day of a workshop will receive a refund or they can send a substitute participant.

About the Approved Trainer: Fiona is nurse, midwife, birth educator and bodyworker who has worked with families and their babies for 30 years. Interwoven throughout her midwifery practice has been an involvement in midwifery education and the teaching of Birthwork workshops. The focus of all birth related teaching is on the dynamic pelvis and how to make space for the baby. Fiona’s drive to teach is fueled by a desire to see childbearing women hold birth knowledge and the eradication of birth trauma to mother and child.

Advanced Offerings: The Spinning Babies® Workshop is required before taking any further trainings, such as Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator Training or Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner Workshop.

Registration is now open for the 2020 Spinning Babies® World Confluence in Caloundra, Australia.

The Spinning Babies®️ 2020 World Confluence in Caloundra will proceed but in an altered format. Details are still being finalised. The confluence will be an in-person conference and a virtual conference.

Unfortunately the adjunct course Spinning Babies ‘Certified Parent Educator Training’ has been postponed to 2021 with exact dates yet to be formalised. Spinning Babies ‘Aware Practitioner Workshop’ will proceed and be taught by Jenny Blyth and Fiona Hallinan.
