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

This workshop is for professionals who work with birthing families in the prenatal and intrapartum periods. Specialities include: 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, and community health workers.

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 through the use of specific techniques that help soften and balance 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, for example.
