Spinning Babies® is a paradigm shift in childbirth education – an approach to birth that focuses on where the baby is in the mother’s pelvis.  Typically, during labor, the focus is on the dilation of the mother’s cervix.  The Spinning Babies approach focuses more on the baby and mother working together through the birthing process.  Spinning Babies® is NOT about forcing, moving, or turning your baby manually, but instead about the natural rotation your baby needs to make during their birth, and how the mother can help them with this process.

But – my baby is already head down?

Great!  Much of the work is done!  Breech babies aren’t the only ones who need help getting into the best position for birth.  Learn about why baby’s position and mother’s activities matter, the factors that influence baby’s position, and what you can do to help your baby be in the ideal position to start birth.

What will you learn in this 3 hour class?
  • Basic anatomy of the pelvis and how it can affect your birth
  • Daily Essentials exercises
  • How to Rest Smart and Move Smart for fetal positioning
  • How to balance your body for birth using the Three Sisters of Balance
  • The Landmarks of the Pelvis
What is the Spinning Babies® Parent Class?

The Spinning Babies® Parent Class is specifically for parents, to help them recognize and connect with their baby, know what position their baby is in, the optimal way a baby needs to travel through the pelvis, and how you as the parent can help your baby come through more comfortably and easily.  The techniques and exercises learned in this class lead to many people having an easier, shorter birth!

But – I already took a childbirth class? This is NOT your typical childbirth class!
Spinning Babies® Parent Class shows you what you can do to increase your chances for an easier birth.  Learn all about practical ways to help baby find the best position to fit the pelvis.  Also learn solutions for when labor seems long, painful, or has a stall.  And, if practiced daily, an easier labor and birth are likely. This class is an amazing addition to ANY childbirth method you have previously learned.  Having basic knowledge of birth is helpful, so if possible, take this class after you have taken a childbirth class.
When should I take the Spinning Babies® Parent class?
Any time! 
It is best taken after about 20 weeks, but could be taken as early as 16 weeks.  You should have a little bit of a baby bump to benefit from the exercises and techniques we will do.  It’s ideal to give yourself time to practice the techniques daily prior to your baby being born, so preferably come to a class before 38 weeks.  The perfect time to start is between 20-34 weeks, but if you are outside that window, please come anyway!  You will definitely find useful information for your birth.
How will I remember all of the techniques we learn in class?
After our class you will receive an e-book with lots of info in it about everything we talk about in class.  No need to take notes! Just come, absorb, and refer to your e-book later!
