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.

Konnie has watched the Spinning Babies® philosophies positivity change her practice for many years now. Her focus is education and she connects mamas to their innate ability to birth and finding their voice along the way. Konnie is a mother of 3 and Grammy of 2 (so far!), and subscribes to a balanced approach to all things. With years of trainings and certifications behind her – being able to present the Spinning Babies® Parent Class into the hands of the parents who will use it – is so gratifying. Educating and empowering parents truly leads to Better Birth on Earth!!
