Toledo, OH – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Gail – June 9, 2021

June 9, 2021 @ 08:00 - 16:00

Spinning Babies® Workshop

Spinning Babies® Workshop

in Toledo, OH, USA

Gail Tully, creator of the Spinning Babies®️Approach invites you to this Spinning Babies®️ Workshop to support competency in physiological birth.

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
  • Improve fetal position without manipulation of the fetus
  • Identify issues faster; shorten a long labor or avoid a cesarean
  • Use less (or no) force to resolve malposition and labor dystocia

Spinning Babies®️ 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, doulas and childbirth educators. Also attended by obstetricians, family medicine doctors, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, perinatal case managers, and community health workers.

Recommended for people new to Spinning Babies®️, as well as those practiced in it for years. CEs are available for some participants, as noted in the Continuing Education section below.

About the Trainer: While seeking physiological understanding to ease birth, Gail Tully created the Spinning Babies®️ Approach. Midwife (CPM) from Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. Gail’s work reduces the high dependence on cesarean surgery as the “go-to” treatment for labor dystocia. A homebirth midwife, doula, and doula trainer, Gail founded a doula collective; the Hennepin County Medical Center’s Doula Program; provided doula training independently and for culturally relevant programs, such as the Turtle Women of St. Paul, MN. Author of Changing Birth on Earth: The Midwife and Nurse’s Guide to Using Physiology to Avoid Another Unnecessary Cesarean, The Belly Mapping Workbook, and Resolving Shoulder Dystocia Online Course. Penny Simkin and Ruth Ancheta’s Labor Progress Handbook features The Belly Mapping®️Method.

Nurse and midwife testimonies make the Spinning Babies®️ a sought after training for Labor and Delivery staff and independent midwives. The Spinning Babies®️ complete protocol was used by Newton Wellesley Hospital’s Quality Improvement project and was selected by the American Public Health Association 2018 Annual Meeting & Expo as a poster presentation. The workshop brings Midwives, Nurses, Doctors, Doulas together with bodyworkers for a curriculum bridging lateral knowledge with traditional wisdom and medical research.
