Seattle, WA – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Kelly Dungan – Oct 13, 2019
October 13 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm PDT
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.
It is recommended for people new to Spinning Babies, as well as those practiced in it for years. Having a foundation of practice will greatly help in understanding these tools and how to apply them.
