Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioners
The following list of bodyworkers and birth workers have completed Spinning Babies® Professional Bodywork Education requirements on our website.
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
- Less pain and more ease in labor
- New anatomical space made by reducing tensions and torsion in the fascia
Each practitioner does techniques according to their title, scope of practice, and skills. For instance, a midwife, nurse, or doctor will not have the full range of bodywork knowledge. A bodyworker would not do things that a midwife or medical doctor can with their scope of practice or license. Results occur on an individual basis.
Practitioners on this listing have agreed not to manipulate a baby (push, turn) 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.
