Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educators teach the in-person Spinning Babies® Parent Class.
Spinning Babies® Parent Class
Babies have a very important and active role during labor — your job is to dilate; your baby’s job is to rotate! Babies must navigate through your pelvis to be born. The Spinning Babies® Parent Class is an ideal opportunity to learn techniques to help bring balance to your body and address any restrictions in your pelvis in order to make birth easier. Together, you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help make room for baby. After this class, you will better understand how your baby can find optimal positions for labor, and make birth less painful— even pleasurable! For expectant parents only.

As a Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner Catherine offers alignment support through hands-on and movement therapies. She combines Spinning Babies® Aware bodywork techniques with years of practice as a somatic movement therapist in offering craniosacral therapy and myofascial toning release, as well as mindfulness in guided movement. In somatic bodywork sessions pregnant women/persons can come into deep relationship with their inner world and make new connections with baby.
In Spinning Babies® Parent Classes Catherine teaches the essential movements that enable a woman/childbearing person prepare for birth and to move through birth well. Partners/dads learn how to help relieve discomfort in pregnancy and to open space in the pelvis at birth for baby to come through.
For most women Spinning Babies activities can resolve prenatal discomforts and imbalanced alignment that could lead to a difficult birth. Some pregnant women, who still feel persistent discomfort or if baby is in a difficult position, will need Spinning Babies® Aware bodywork.
Families can face the intensity and uncertainty of birth with greater confidence, knowing that they have made their best efforts with Spinning Babies activities learned in the parent class and have received the best care for mother/birthing person and baby with Spinning Babies® Aware bodywork to increase the ease of birth.
