Spinning Babies ® Parent Class highlights your baby’s active role in birth. During labor, baby needs to pass through “3 Levels” of the pelvis. This class teaches techniques to help expand the pelvis and the muscles that support – or restrict – your pelvic “levels”. Using Gravity and Movement, you can Balance the pelvis for an easier passage. Together, you and your birthing partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for baby”. The goal of Spinning Babies is to create conditions where baby can find the optimal positions for labor, making birth easier, less painful and even pleasurable!
This is a hands on class with a lot of demonstration and practice. Be sure to wear clothing that will not inhibit movement. Loose jeans, yoga pants or tights are preferred. If you must wear a dress, please wear tights underneath. Get ready to learn and practice the Daily Essentials as well as many other positions for comfort in pregnancy and during labor using your new rebozo!
As an educator and birth doula, I have witnessed the amazing changes the Spinning Babies® paradigm have brought to my clients pregnancies and labors. Learning the skills to recognize and resolve difficulties in labor, aiding baby to change position, partners having the tools to support the birthing parent brings empowerment, connection and ease to the birthing process.
It’s a wonderful way to connect to your baby.
This class can be taken anytime after 20 weeks gestation.
A beautiful hand woven Mexican rebozo is included in the price!
Class is limited to 6 couples.
This class does not replace a childbirth preparation series, but it is a great supplement for hospital based classes.
This class is for Expectant Parents only. Birth professionals are referred to the Spinning Babies® Workshop.
