Spinning Babies® Workshop

Spinning Babies® 2-Day Workshop

**A COVIDsafe Vic Plan will be in place

Join me in this expanded 2 day workshop where we have time to integrate knowledge and learn extra Spinning Babies® skills to support birthing women.

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.

The 2-day workshop covers the same curriculum as the 1-day workshop at an easy-to-integrate pace with time for more hands-on practice. Feel confident in how to apply the Spinning Babies® approach to help birthing families in community, clinical and hospital settings.

This course introduces the Spinning Babies® approach to pregnancy comfort, labor progress and easier birth. We welcome all birth professionals – from the new doula to the highly experienced provider. Spinning Babies® presents a new perspective on the anatomy of fetal positioning and birth, and applies stretch and jiggle techniques for body balancing.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.

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

Continuing Education: A Certificate of Attendance documenting HOURS of education will be provided at the end of the workshop.
