Seattle, WA – Labor and Birth with Spinning Babies® w/ Gail Tully – March 5, 2019

March 5 @ 8:30 am - 5:30 pm PST

Description: Labor and Birth with Spinning Babies® 8-hour workshop includes theory, hands-on techniques, and practice for in labor situations.

This workshop is for L&D nurses, midwives, obstetricians, and family medicine doctors who catch babies. Therefore this version of our workshop is not open to bodyworkers, doulas or paraprofessionals. We invite every birth worker to our Spinning Babies Workshop at another time.

Promote labor progress with static stretch and jiggle techniques to lengthen and balance pelvic ligaments and muscles. Analyze pelvic diameters and birth positions to  avoid misdiagnosing CephaloPelvic Disproportion. Achieve higher vaginal birth rates with a better understanding of how to support fetal rotation, engagement, reducing a cervical lip or solving a transverse arrest or lack of descent for persistent posterior presentation.

Speaker:  Gail Tully is a midwife (CPM) from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Author of The Belly Mapping Workbook and Resolving Shoulder Dystocia video. Penny Simkin and Ruth Ancheta’s Labor Progress Handbook features Belly Mapping in Chapter 3. Anne Frye’s Holistic Midwifery, Vol 2, cites Gail on shoulder dystocia.
