Om Births is thrilled to host BACE-NMC, Spinning Babies and Lorenza Holt for a special training in the philosophy and techniques of Gail Tully and Spinning Babies! This workshop is for midwives, childbirth educators, doulas, nurses, nurse practitioners, obstetricians, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, myo-fascial release practitioners, perinatal case managers, community health workers and others who work with birthing women.
The Three Principles of Spinning Babies are:
Balance, Gravity and Movement. Learn how to encourage and support pregnant women having more comfortable pregnancies and laboring mothers having easier labors by using the Spinning Babies principles and techniques.
Spinning Babies promotes better fetal positioning during pregnancy and labor by using techniques that help soften and balance the pelvic ligaments and muscles that support the pregnant uterus and pelvic floor. We relate pelvic alignment and mobility to an easier and shorter birth.
Spinning Babies gives your work greater success by teaching you specific techniques. You will learn to know when to do what- and why - to help baby engage, descend and rotate through the pelvis and pelvic floor. You will practice techniques for when labor stalls due to lack of engagement, a cervical lip or transverse arrest.
Spinning Babies will teach you about:
- The anatomy and physiology of the pregnant uterus and the soft tissues that support the pelvic structure
- Belly Mapping, - a fun and effective way that encourages mothers to connect with how their babies are positioned inside them during the last weeks of pregnancy
- The effects of an occiput posterior labor
- Assessing what a stalled labor pattern is telling us
- What techniques we can apply to ease labor progress through the three levels of the pelvis
- How a doula, within her scope of practice, can use the Spinning Babies principles
Spinning Babies will change the way you think about birth interventions.
