Spinning Babies continues where Optimal Fetal Positioning leaves off and adds Balance. By noting fetal position and/or the station of fetal descent, a series of activities can be matched to mother and baby.The workshop is quite useful to learn this protocol expressed as The 3 Principles of Spinning Babies and the Fantastic Four. Class addresses the muscles and other “soft” tissues and matches the technique to open the pelvic station, where baby’s head stays in a non-progressing labor. The course also looks at ways a mother can add balance to her every day activities. This is a fun hands-on class that will have you look at birth in a new way and be able to help your clients. Class is designed for doulas, massage therapist, yoga instructors, midwives, nurses, doctors, chiropractors and any other body worker.
