Rockford, IL – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Tammy – June 13, 2022
June 13 @ 09:00 - 17:00
Spinning Babies® Workshop
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.
Who may attend? We welcome all professionals who serve people in their pregnancy and birth. Specialties may include: midwives, nurses, nurse practitioners, obstetricians, family medicine doctors, childbirth educators, doulas, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, myo-fascial release practitioners, perinatal case managers, and community health workers. It is recommended for people new to Spinning Babies, as well as those practiced in it for years.
