March 11, 2020 @ 8:30 AM - March 12, 2020 @ 5:00 PM
Spinning Babies® Workshop
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. Participants learn fresh solutions for long and/or posterior labor, labor dystocia and labor pain. Spinning Babies presents a new perspective on the anatomy of fetal positioning and birth, and applies stretch and jiggle techniques for body balancing. Balance, Gravity and Movement℠ are the guilding priciples of Spinning Babies.
After this workshop you will be able to:
- Demonstrate fetal movement of rotation and descent through the pelvic floor in a gynecoid pelvis.
- Explain how uterosacral ligaments may influence fetal position.
- Design a daily pregnancy protocol (activity routine) for pregnant people to follow
- Differentiate a progressing from a non-progressing labor.
- Apply a maternal position to increase each diameter of each level of the pelvis (inlet, mid, outlet).
- And much, much more!
