Hobart, AUS – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Fiona – Apr 11, 2022
April 11 @ 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Spinning Babies® Workshop
Midwives, doulas, birth educators, chiropractors, doctors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, pregnancy bodyworkers, acupuncturists, prenatal yoga instructors are all welcome.
The workshop will be filled with easy to integrate information and hands-on practice about how to apply the Spinning Babies®️ approach to birthing families in the community and/or clinical 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; gentle actions to shorten a long labor or avoid a cesarean
- Use less (or no) force to resolve malposition and labor dystocia
- And much, much more!
Spinning Babies® Three PrinciplesSM. Three BalancesSM, and Three 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.
