Spinning Babies® Workshop
This course introduces the Spinning Babies® paradigm for pregnancy comfort, labor progress and easier birth for the experienced provider. Participants learn fresh solutions for labor pain, long and/or posterior labor, and labor dystocia. Spinning Babies presents a new perspective of the anatomy of fetal positioning and birth and applies stretch and jiggle techniques for muscles and fascia.
After this workshop you will be able to:
Demonstrate fetal movement of rotation and descent through the pelvic floor in a gynecoid pelvis.
Explain how uterosacral ligaments may influence fetal position.
Design a pregnancy protocol (activity routine) for pregnant people to follow
Differentiate a progressing from a non-progressing labor.
Apply a maternal position to increase each diameter of the pelvis (inlet, mid, outlet).
This workshop is open to all professionals who serve people in their pregnancy and birth. Specialities may include: midwives, nurses, nurse practitioners, obstetricians, family medicine doctors, childbirth educators, doulas, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, myo-fascial release practitioners, perinatal case managers, and community health workers.
