Walnut Creek, CA – Spinning Babies® Workshop w/ Nikki – May 18, 2023
May 18 @ 08:30 - 17:30
Spinning Babies® Workshop
Registration opens to the public on March 15, 2023.
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
- Take gentle action to shorten a long labor or avoid a cesarean
- Use less (or no) force to resolve malposition and labor dystocia
Spinning Babies® Three Principles. Three Balances, and Pelvic 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.
