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.

Maeva AlthausSpinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator (SpBCPE), HypnoBirthing® Childbirth Educator, Certified Hypnotherapist HypnoBirthing NY
Maeva became a childbirth educator through the HypnoBirthing Institute in 2011. She subsequently began attending births as a doula in 2012. Following the birth experience of her best friend which was long and difficult she felt there had to be more she could do to support women in labor. Her research led her to Gail Tully and Spinning Babies.
She took her first workshop with Gail in 2013 and began to use the Spinning Babies techniques with all her clients to truly support physiological birth.
Combining the Mind with HypnoBirthing and the Body with the use of the Spinning Babies techniques she provides a complete childbirth education program.
She strives to empower women and their partners to advocate for themselves and to help them know and trust their bodies in the birthing process.
