Prattville, AL – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Emma – Apr 6, 2023

April 6 @ 08:30 - 17:00

Spinning Babies® Workshop

Spinning Babies® Workshop

Emma Moreland, Spinning Babies®️ Trainer, CPM and Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner, 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, not random events, to the body’s need which once met can then allow the birth to flow. 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 and apply techniques to reduce long labors or cesareans
  • Add fresh solutions for long and/or posterior labor, labor dystocia and labor pain
  • Qualify for advanced workshops

Spinning Babies® Three PrinciplesSM. Three BalancesSM, and Pelvic 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, family practice doctors, doulas and childbirth educators. Also attended by obstetricians, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, perinatal case managers, and community health workers. It is recommended for people new to Spinning Babies®️, as well as those reading the website for years.

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.
