Brewer, ME – Spinning Babies® L&B Workshop w/ Lorenza – Nov 2, 2022
November 2 @ 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM$250.00
Spinning Babies® Labor & Birth Workshop
This will be a one day Spinning Babies® training for professionals supporting birthing families during labor and birth. This day of Spinning Babies® training will focus on how to apply our approach in the labor and birth context only. (What we offer parents in pregnancy will only be given a brief overview. That is covered in my two-day workshop that will be held on Nov 4&5.) This workshop will give you a more intentional physiological approach for supporting labor and birth in the hospital context.

A participant may identify another person to take that registration. No refunds will be given once the request is made after the start of the workshop.
Participants are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and related expenses and Spinning Babies® is unable to refund these expenses.
COVID-19: As of June, 2021, the trainer will expect all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID.
If COVID restrictions are in place in that community, the trainer may choose to cancel the workshop, will grant full refunds, or may offer a hybrid model of teaching where half of the training is virtual and the other half is taught in smaller groups.
As COVID restrictions are lifted, and vaccinations are the norm, the trainer will seek a space for the workshop that is well ventilated and will limit the number of participants to keep the proper safe distancing between participants. Regardless, all participants are assuming their own risk when attending a workshop. All participants are expected and required to wear a quality mask covering their nose and mouth during the entire workshop. Disinfectants will be used and cleaning steps will be taken during the event.
If a participant is feeling sick, has any of the possible symptoms of COVID 19 or its variants before or during the workshop, the participant is expected to immediately withdraw from the course. A full refund will be granted to these individuals.
About the Trainer: Lorenza Holt has a master’s in public health with a concentration in maternal and child health. She has been a birth advocate in the Boston area for over 25 years. She is an experienced birth doula, independent childbirth educator, trainer of community doulas, and since 2015 a Spinning Babies® Approved Trainer.
Helping birth professionals understand the Spinning Babies® approach is a true honor and a passion for Lorenza. The workshops give guidance on when and how to use specific techniques or positions to assist a pregnancy find greater comfort or a labor find the right balance and space so the birth process can continue and progress. The shift in paradigm has been a game changer for Lorenza in her birth work. Being able to share a different perspective and approach with other birth professionals is a delight. The more she trains labor and delivery nurses, midwives, obstetricians, OB residents, doulas, childbirth educators, and bodyworkers, the deeper her commitment becomes. There is success in better understanding the anatomy of the birth-giver and how the baby participates in this incredibly intricate and well-designed process.
