Spinning Babies® Parent Classes
With Winnipeg's Only Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educators
What is Spinning Babies®?
Spinning Babies® is a revolutionary new approach that is changing birth all over the world! It is a new paradigm that focuses on baby's position and station within the pelvis for natural, physiological solutions. This class teaches parents a series of prenatal activities which can help to optimize baby's position, allowing them to fit comfortably within the womb and pelvis. Parents will also be equipped with hands-on, tangible and detailed solutions to use when labour seems long, painful or is experiencing a stall.
How Is This Approach Different And What Are The Benefits?
Spinning Babies® is not meant to replace other prenatal education classes or methods. Instead, this approach can augment any birth preparation course, method or plan by providing parents with the practical tools to help labour progress and to further ease childbirth and create comfort in pregnancy.
The Spinning Babies® approach is unique in that the focus is brought back to the physiology of pregnancy and birth. By restoring balance in the birthers muscles and ligaments and alignment of her uterus and pelvis, a woman's body is able to function optimally so she and her baby can maintain comfort in pregnancy and experience an easier, more comfortable labour and birth. These techniques can be used in any birth setting in conjunction with any birthing methods and comfort management styles.
