Spinning Babies is for midwives, childbirth educators, doulas, nurses, nurse practitioners, obstetricians,
prenatal yoga instructors, prenatal bodyworkers, perinatal case managers, community health workers, chiropractors, acupuncturists and others who work with birthing women.
The Three Principles of Spinning Babies are
Balance, Gravity and Movement
Learn how to encourage and support pregnant women in having more comfortable pregnancies, and birthing mothers in having easier labors,
by using the
Spinning Babies techniques.
Spinning Babies will teach you about:
- The anatomy and physiology of the pregnant uterus and the soft tissues that support the pelvic structure
- Belly Mapping - a fun and effective way that encourages mothers to connect with how their babies are positioned inside them during the last weeks of pregnancy
- Daily and weekly activities pregnant women can practice to promote more comfort in pregnancy, overall suppleness in the pelvis, and as a result, easier births
- The effects of an occiput posterior labor
- Assessing what a stalled labor pattern is telling us
- What techniques we can apply to ease labor progress through the three levels of the pelvis
Spinning Babies will help you know when to do what and why, so that you can assist a "failure to progress" by using techniques that can help a baby to engage, rotate, and descend through the three levels of the pelvis.
