This workshop is for L&D nurses, midwives, obstetricians, family medicine doctors, and doulas who work with birthing families during the intrapartum period.
The Three Principles of Spinning Babies are: Balance, Gravity and Movement.
Learn how to encourage and support laboring parents having easier labors by using the Spinning Babies approach.
Spinning Babies promotes better fetal positioning during pregnancy and labor by using techniques that help soften and balance the pelvic ligaments and muscles that support the pregnant uterus and pelvic floor. We relate pelvic alignment and mobility to an easier and shorter birth.
Spinning Babies gives your work greater success by teaching you specific balancing techniques and encourages you to define labor progress through the assessment of fetal position and station, rather than dilation. You will learn to know when to do what- and why – to help baby engage, descend and rotate through the pelvis and pelvic floor. You will practice techniques and an approach to solutions for when labor stalls due to lack of engagement, a cervical lip or transverse arrest.
Spinning Babies will inspire a new paradigm for labor support
We will review:

  • The anatomy and physiology of the soft tissues that support the pregnant uterus and its pelvic structures
  • Tools available to you to help assess fetal position and station
  • The effects of an occiput posterior labor
  • Interpreting a labor pattern when labor is not progressing
  • What techniques can you apply to ease labor progress through the three levels of the pelvis
