Help your baby find optimal positions to help birth be less painful— even shorter! For expectant parents only.

Catherine Burns supports childbearing women and newborns as a somatic bodyworker, doula, lactation counselor and parent educator. In her MamaBebe practice she helps families prenatally, during birth, for breastfeeding, and in recovery from birth.
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.
