Spinning Babies® Resolving Shoulder Dystocia Workshop

Spinning Babies® Resolving Shoulder Dystocia Workshop

This workshop is a follow-up for midwives, nurses, obstetricians, student midwives and others who might be in the position of handling this emergency. This 1-Day Spinning Babies Workshop is looking at the continuance of fetal descent of the shoulders travelling through the inlet, mid-pelvis and outlet. This workshop addresses 5 types of shoulder dystocia and provides ways of looking at the whole baby’s body in resolving this emergent complication.

We will cover the anatomy and landscape of the body in relation to the baby, 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 done.

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