San Diego, CA – Spinning Babies® Breech Basics w/ Nicole – Jun 12, 2022

June 12 @ 09:00 - 17:00

Spinning Babies® Breech Basics Workshop

Spinning Babies® Breech Basics Workshop

This course is focusing on upright, mobile breech birth, and is for midwives, nurses, obstetricians, student midwives and others. By obstetrical statistics, 25% of breech babies are unknown until birth and regardless of practice protocols, all providers can be trained to assist in the breech basics. This 1-Day Spinning Babies Workshop is looking at the both normal and expected cardinal movements of breech as well as complicated breech birth. Although advanced topics of breech are threaded through this workshop, the most common complications will be presented thus it is called Breech Basics.

In the morning we will cover the anatomy and landscape of the body in relation to the baby and even take time to practice normal breech birth simulations so that can be integrated in your body memory. Later we will cover the timing of when to act, maneuvers and techniques for restoration and getting the baby out, as well as advanced aspects of what to do when you don’t find what you expect.

This course has been extended in length so that case studies, videos, sharings in larger and smaller groups, and simulations can be practiced.

Who may attend: This course is only for midwives, doctors, nurses, midwifery students or anyone providing emergency care for birth.
