Sydney, AUS – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Jenny or Fiona- 23-24, May 2021
May 23 @ 8:30 AM - May 24 @ 5:00 PM
Spinning Babies® 2-Day Workshop
**The price of registration is listed in US DOLLARS**
We are excited to offer this two-day workshop of birthing wisdom to care providers in Sydney. We welcome midwives, doulas, birth educators, chiropractors, doctors, osteopaths, physiotherapists, pregnancy bodyworkers, acupuncturists, prenatal yoga instructors, myo-fascial therapists, and alternative care-providers who assist women in pregnancy and childbirth.
The workshop will be filled with easy-to-integrate information, and hands-on practice. I intend to help participants feel confident in how to apply the Spinning Babies®️ approach, so that they can better help birthing families in the community, or in clinical and hospital settings.
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 guiding principles 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!
