Description

Spinning Babies® Workshop

Spinning Babies Workshop with Lorenza Holt, MPH, BDT (DONA), BCCE, SpB Trainer

Hosted by Boston Association for Childbirth Education – Nursing Mothers’ Council (BACE-NMC) – bacenmc@gmail.com.

This workshop is for midwives, nurses, nurse practitioners, obstetricians, family medicine doctors, childbirth educators, doulas, prenatal yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, myo-fascial release practitioners, perinatal case managers, community health workers and others who work with birthing families.

The Three Principles of Spinning Babies are: Balance, Gravity and Movement.

Learn how to encourage and support pregnant parents have more comfortable pregnancies and laboring parents 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 structures
  • 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
