Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioners
Spinning Babies Aware Practitioners have been trained in a bodywork protocol intended to allow:
- Comfort in pregnancy
- Spontaneous change to a more optimal fetal position, where space is available in the womb
- Progress and less pain in labor
- Baby to move themselves into the new space made by reducing tensions and torsions in muscles and ligaments
Each practitioner will offer techniques according to their title, scope of practice, and skills. For instance, a midwife, nurse, or doctor will not have the full range of a bodywork knowledge or license. A bodyworker would not be able to do things a midwife or medical doctor has in their scope of practice. This may or may not limit results. Results occur on an individual basis.
Practitioners on this listing agree not to manipulate the baby’s position (push, turn) by their hands unless they are a doctor or midwife trained in external cephalic version (ECV).
Spinning Babies does not assume risk. Decide upon a course of care with your practitioner that you find comfortable and safe.
