Brisbane, AUS – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Jenny – Aug 7-8, 2023

August 7 @ 09:00 - August 8 @ 17:00

Spinning Babies® Workshop

Spinning Babies® Workshop

I am an Australian birthworker delighted to bring this Spinning Babies®️ 2 day workshop to Brisbane.

I welcome midwives, doulas, birth educators, chiropractors, doctors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, pregnancy bodyworkers, acupuncturists, prenatal yoga instructors, myo-fascial therapists, and alternative care-providers who assist women in pregnancy and childbirth.

The workshop will be filled with easy-to-integrate information, and hands-on practice. I intend to help participants feel confident in how to apply the Spinning Babies®️ approach, so that they can better help birthing families in the community, or in clinical and hospital settings.

Spinning Babies® begins with fetal rotation to reveal the lesser known physiology of birth anatomy. Your passion; our approach. Start seeing solutions in labor progress with this new lens on childbirth. After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Facilitate comfort in pregnancy and ease in childbirth for your clients
  • Improve fetal position without manipulation of the fetus
  • Identify issues faster
  • Take gentle action to shorten a long labor or avoid a cesarean
  • Use less (or no) force to resolve malposition and labor dystocia

Spinning Babies® Three Principles. Three Balances, and Pelvic Levels Solutions offers the world’s first complete system of birth preparation and labor ease concepts using baby’s position. Physiological techniques change the effective size of the pelvis through the body’s own innate capacity to resolve or prevent labor dystocia.

Who may attend: We welcome all professionals who serve people in their pregnancy and birth.  Ideal for: midwives, nurses, nurse practitioners, family practice doctors, doulas and childbirth educators. Also attended by obstetricians, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, perinatal case managers, and community health workers. It is recommended for people new to Spinning Babies®️, as well as those reading the website for years.
