What is Spinning Babies®?

The focus of the Spinning Babies® techniques is on where the baby is in the pelvis, how it can affect labor and what you can do in pregnancy and labor to help your baby get in an ideal position to have an easier birth.

Babies tend to use the space that is available to them. If your baby is posterior (also called sunny side up), transverse or breech late in pregnancy, it is often due to the alignment in your body.

In the Spinning Babies Parent class, you will learn why your baby's position matters and what you can do to be proactive and get your baby in an ideal position for birth.

The class should be taken when you start to have a bit of a bump and before 34 weeks so you can really benefit from the techniques and have time to practice.

Whether you are preparing for a hospital birth (with or without medication), a home birth or a VBAC you will benefit from these techniques.

In this class, we will cover:

  • Basic anatomy of the pelvis and how it affects birth
  • Belly Mapping: To discover your baby's position and increase baby-parent bonding
  • Daily Essential activities to give you greater ease in pregnancy and help give your baby space to move and settle into a great birth position
  • The Three Sisters of Balance: Help the birthing muscles and ligaments prepare for birth
  • Positions and comfort measures to use during labor
  • Birth positions that open the pelvis to let baby come through more easily
  • Solutions for when labor doesn’t move forward in a typical pattern
