There have been several emails and calls about breech babies that have flipped. And a few born vaginally breech.
Jenny Varela shares her daughter’s flipping success in her blog,
Heavenly Treasure. Jenny visited my site www.SpinningBabies.com at the suggestion of her midwife Sheila Simms Watson, CPM, LM, Owner and Founder of Spirit of Life Birth Center in Miami, Florida. Sheila is an amazing Spirit herself! She and I recently spent the day together at Tamara Taitt’s Gathering Place in Miami going over the Spinning Babies theories and techniques with two dozen doulas and midwives, childbirth educators and Tamara, a marriage and family therapist and pregnant womens’ advocate. Check out Shiela’s website, it truly is an online village for raising babies from womb to walking and more!
Jenny writes so warmly and wonderfully about the adventure of flipping her baby! Her confidence and practical enjoyment working with her baby inspires me to share her story!
Be sure to visit her blog posting. She wrote me this email,
“Just want to thank you for this site! It helped so much!

At the same time I was finding Jenny’s email I had received this text from Lisa Gonzales,
Doula and activist, and the two pregnant volunteers who came to our
Melbourne, Florida workshop this past February.
They’ve had their babies and such news!
Samantha needed to come as she was 37 weeks
She was so open to experiencing her baby flip or to have her vaginally breech.
We even discussed whether I might be in town to help her at home or
if she might fly up to Atlanta for one of two
Shortly after our time together doing exercises to balance her pelvis and getting upside down
