Palo Alto, CA – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Gail Tully – Feb 23, 2020

Spinning Babies® Workshop

in Palo Alto, California, USA

Gail Tully, creator of Spinning Babies®, is happy to be at this Blossom sponsored event! Blossom doulas please contact Alyson before registering to hear how to use the Blossom Doula Discount secret!

Fetal positions are clues, not random events, to the body’s need which once met can then allow the birth to flow. Spinning Babies® is the fastest rising approach to meet the cesarean crisis. Physiology Before Force(SM) means we recognize medical interventions may be necessary but only after body-based techniques are tried.

After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Facilitate comfort in pregnancy and ease in childbirth
  • Ideintify and apply techniques to reduce long labors or cesareans
  • Add fresh solutions for long and/or posterior labor, labor dystocia and labor pain
  • Resolve labor stalls with Spinning Babies® Three Levels Solutions℠
