Somers Point, NJ – Spinning Babies® Resolving Shoulder Dystocia and Breech Basics w/ Rachel Shapiro – Feb 20, 2020

February 20 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

Spinning Babies® Resolving Shoulder Dystocia and Breech Basics

This is a Resolving Shoulder Dystocia and Breech Basics workshop. We look at resolving shoulder dystocia based on the three levels of the pelvis: which dystocia occurs where and why and which techniques work best for that level of the pelvis to help resolve with optimal outcomes. We also look at vaginal breech birth by understanding the normal spontaneous rotation, and the signs of when a baby is asking for support rotating at the inlet, mid pelvis, and outlet. We will use role play and case studies, movie clips and images, to help us understand which technique best matches the level of the pelvis where the baby may be stuck in rotation.

Hosted by: Rivka Scher,
