Her wisdom, knowledge of maternal fetal anatomy and original visual aids, will open your mind and enhance your skills in understanding, preventing and correcting many of these problems.

Spinning Babies® was the best training I’ve taken in ten years of practice – it has revolutionized my approach to working with birthing women. I feel so strongly about this training: no one who supports women in birth should be without it.
