Spinning Babies
+ Optimal Fetal Positioning

Truth be told...

The most amazing thing about birth I've learned is how the bodies of the baby and the birthing person work together symbiotically in labor

- and yet -

optimal positioning is

what most pregnant people say

they know the least about,

and what many who gave birth via Cesarean say they wish they'd known more about.

Why optimal positioning matters

The birthing body supports the pregnancy with ligaments, muscles, and bones. When these structures are balanced, the baby is cradled in a way that is aligned for better comfort in pregnancy.

An optimally positioned baby descends into the pelvic bowl (engages) more efficiently. Babies who are engaged at the time that labor onsets have a much higher likelihood of being born vaginally.

When the bodies of baby and birthing person are aligned, labor follows a more effective pattern- allowing for greater coping and a simpler birth.

Balancing workshop

BREECH WORKSHOP

Take the chance to learn how to use belly mapping and the Spinning Babies techniques to help you connect with your pregnancy in a meaningful and proactive way. 

With the measures in place to limit visits to and stays in the hospital, it's more important than ever to promote optimal positioning for shorter labors and simpler births​.

Head’s up! Breech, transverse, or oblique lie is when the baby's head is not down. This can complicate pregnancy and ultimately affect how, when, and where you birth your baby. With attention, connection, and body work, we may be able to encourage your baby to find a vertex position by making room in the areas of your body that they need in order to turn.

Take this session if you are:

  • More than 20w pregnant

  • Curious about how your baby is positioned

  • Hoping for a simpler labor, to help limit interventions like induction or Cesarean, and/or to delay (or avoid) the use of medical pain management

Take this session if you are:

  • 33w or later, carrying breech or transverse*

  • Hoping to avoid Cesarean birth for this type of position, and want to "do all you can" to work with your baby to change this position to vertex ahead of labor

Sessions are comprised of:

  • Live Zoom session to coach participants on techniques for pregnancy and labor

  • Gail Tully's Parent Education Video streaming/download

  • Materials for ongoing practice

  • ~OPTIONAL~ Accountability sessions for check-in are available, to ensure you're sticking to your goals

Sessions are comprised of:

  • Live Zoom session to coach participants on techniques for pregnancy and labor

  • Individualized schedule for techniques for greatest effectiveness

  • Follow up, with three pathways:

    • Baby went vertex! Learn techniques for labor

    • ECV scheduled. Prepare for this process and its possible outcomes

    • Planned Cesarean. Learn about what to expect for your birth and create a birth plan that reflects your preferences
