Spinning Babies® Workshop
Emma Moreland, Spinning Babies®️ Trainer and CPM, invites you to explore a new perspective in birth anatomy to transform your birth and pregnancy services. How can we help create easier births? What about babies whose positions might complicate their journey?
Fetal positions are clues to the body’s need which once met can then allow the birth to flow. This approach, then, ease birth for all baby positions. Spinning Babies®️ is the fastest rising approach to meet the cesarean crisis. Physiology Before Force(SM) means we recognize medical interventions may be necessary but only after body-based techniques are tried.
After this workshop you will be able to:
- Facilitate comfort in pregnancy and ease in childbirth
- Identify needs and apply techniques to reduce long labors or cesareans
- Understand posterior labor, labor dystocia and labor pain
- Resolve labor stalls with Spinning Babies®️ Pelvis Levels Solutions℠

About the Trainer: Emma Moreland (she/her) is an intuitive bodyworker and homebirth midwife based out of San Diego, CA. After discovering Spinning Babies® during the birth of her fifth child, she set out to gain a deeper understanding of birth physiology while also hoping to fill the gap of representation in her midwifery community. Emma began apprenticing with a local Spinning Babies® Approved Trainer and midwife where she cultivated the skills of ceremonious birth, parent-led birth positioning, solution-focused and parent-child focused care, and informed as well as embodied consent. As a Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner and Spinning Babies® World Confluence speaker, Emma has committed herself to the education about and implementation of embodied consent in birth and body workers, as well as clients.
Advanced Offerings: The Spinning Babies® Workshop is required before taking any further trainings, such as Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator Training or Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner Workshop.
