About the Trainer: Tema Mercado is a Xicana Midwife (LM, CPM), mother to five children and a grandmother. She believes that birth work can change the world and has dedicated the last 10 years to birth and reproductive justice on the U.S Mexico Border serving families on both sides of the border.

Tema was born and raised in San Jose, California and spent her adolescence in Mexicali, Baja California. Spinning Babies® as a concept and practice came to Tema early on in her student midwife journey. She connected with Nicole Morales and through her mentorship, Tema began to view birth through a different lens.

Spinning Babies® is a paradigm shift on how we understand and assist different forms of pregnancy discomfort.One of the fundamental approaches in this practice asks,”where is the baby?” in relation to the levels of the pelvis. It decentralizes questions about cervix dilation which expands our capacity to support complications in births like labor dystocia, shoulder dystocia and breech birth. The expansiveness in Spinning Babies® and its commitment of restoring balance in pregnancy aligned with Tema’s ancestral midwifery knowledge that was passed down from her Partera ancestors.

Tema feels honored to be part of a collective of people supporting with the trainings. She looks forward to traveling and learning from her future Spinning Babies® workshop participants. If you are curious about the work Tema offers in the community, you can visit her website http://www.lamatrizbirth.com/ and her IG page @matrizmidwife.


Advanced Offerings: The Spinning Babies® Workshop is required before taking any further trainings, such as Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator Training or Spinning Babies® Aware Practitioner Workshop.

Registration is now open for Spinning Babies® 2020 Confluence in Caloundra, QLD, Australia
