Traditional wisdom meets modern research. “Relearn” physiology to reduce dependence on surgical birth.
Nothing short of a birth revolution.

“I use these techniques with every laboring mom I care for and they help every time! I’m so glad I took the class!”

Spinning Babies® Workshop

This course introduces the Spinning Babies® approach to pregnancy comfort, labor progress and easier birth. We welcome all birth professionals – from the new doula to the highly experienced provider. Participants learn fresh solutions for long and/or posterior labor, labor dystocia and labor pain. Spinning Babies presents a new perspective on the anatomy of fetal positioning and birth, and applies stretch and jiggle techniques for body balancing. Balance, Gravity and Movement℠ are the guilding priciples of Spinning Babies.

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 daily 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 each level of the pelvis (inlet, mid, outlet).
  • And much, much more!

Yes, the workshop is different than the website.
