Changing seasons invite reflection and preparation. We are doing the same here at Spinning Babies®!  After much preparation, registration is open for the Spinning Babies® 2020 World Confluence. Join us next October in Australia with Spinning Babies’ Gail Tully, breech expert Andrew Bisits, Midwife Rachel Reed, our Spinning Babies® Approved Trainers and more speakers. If you’re a childbirth professional or work with expecting families, join us in Caloundra, Australia. Registration is NOW OPEN! 🎉

Another preparation we have been busy with is our website! We have a terrific team working to re-imagine our website. We would like to include special birth stories of how Spinning Babies® ideas were used to ease labor. Are you a parent with a story? Join the movement by describing your experience and send your story to us!

Wisconsin Breech Conference

Gail and Approved Trainer Nicole Morales, CPM, head over to the Madison, WI “Breech Conference” on November 9-10. Doctors, nurses, and midwives learn skills to feed their passion for returning breech skills to the Midwest United States. Midwife Cynthia Caillagh, CPM, organized the conference and invited Gail to offer post-conference workshops for Midwives on Spinning Babies, Resolving Shoulder Dystocia and Breech which are offered as a single event to Wisconsin midwives and providers attending the conference. If public tickets open up we’ll post the registration to all providers in the area.

Get this month’s birth tip from Gail Tully and exciting information about upcoming workshops and events below! 😀

 

Birth Tip

Parents are coming to our Spinning Babies® Parent Classes to learn comfort measures and helping labor go smoothly. They learn how and when to do techniques for pregnancy and birth. Birth positions for opening the top of the pelvis.

 

Posterior Pelvic Tilt

Flattening the lower back brings the top of the sacrum further back. This position, called posterior pelvic tilt, moves the sacral promontory back out of the way of the baby’s head. A posterior pelvic tilt, or contra-nutation of the pelvis increases the size of the top of the pelvis. Make room in the inlet to help a baby engage with each contraction for ten contractions. Relax your back in between contractions.

posterior pelvic tilt

Rest Smart/Move Smart are Spinning Babies® terms for maternal positioning, a concept describing pregnancy and birthing positions for birth givers. Rest Smart/Move Smart helps you understand that birth positions are more than gravity and comfort, but that “smart” birth positions open the pelvic diameter where babies wait for more room.
