Spinning Babies® Parent Class now available in Bowling Green, KY|birth BG|Doula Childbirth Education
This is what dreams are made of for me.
I've waited so very long for this moment!
Since the very first time that I saw Spinning Babies techniques used by other birth professionals at a birth to make space in the pelvis to help baby navigate in their journey ... I was hooked. I read and studied like I always do. Ordered books and materials to learn more and intended to learn all there is to know about the Spinning Babies approach. It still wasn't enough for me.
I'd waited for what seemed like forever on a workshop that was close enough for me to attend AND worked with my client schedule so that I could expand on my knowledge as a birth professional in order to assist my doula clients in their pregnancy and birth.
This has literally been in the works for YEARS!!!
Now .. enter the pandemic.
Much like everything else in our lives, workshops were cancelled indefinitely.
Needless to say I was crushed.
I was using all the info that I had and seeing the value with my own clients.
SOOOO. I waited .. and waited .. and waited and checked the website religiously.
Finally I was able to find a workshop in February of '21.
I waited very nervously to see if it would be cancelled and was delighted to book a hotel and drive (in the snow) to Indiana to attend the one day workshop.
I left feeling energized. Excited to be able to bring even more knowledge and value to my doula clients.
But still, it wasn't enough. What if I could become a parent educator and bring this approach and simple techniques to our COMMUNITY???
What if this class was available to parents with doulas? without doulas? with unmedicated births? with epidurals? WHAT IF IT WAS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE?
I went on to complete the prerequisites to become a Certified Spinning Babies® Parent educator and diligently searched for classes that were close enough that I could attend. (Insert pandemic disappointment here)
FINALLY .. in November ... the stars aligned and all of my fetal positioning educational dreams came true. Classes were available!!
I booked flights and hotels to Boston, MA and secured my spot in class for 4 straight days of instruction and education.
We took covid tests prior to class to keep everyone as safe as possible and got started.
I was into a classroom, filled with professionals, excited to get started learning more! Class consisted of L&D Nurses, Midwives, chiropractors, body workers, childbirth educators, doulas, yoga instructors, massage therapists and more ... get this .. from all over the nation and some even hopped an international flight to join us. Seeing the diversity in the room just fueled my heart to learn along side these folks.
We had an amazing group activity where we formed a human pelvis. It was pretty awesome. (Guess which part of the pelvic anatomy I was?)
We had 2 Spinning Babies trainers AND 2 Spinning Babies Parent Educators to share their knowledge and experience with us!
Just when I thought it couldn't get better.
Gail Tully joins us!!
I may have fangirled a bit.
All this to say .. The class was amazing. I learned so much .. well beyond what I was expecting and I'm even more excited to share this knowledge with parents in our community.
I know that was alot to read .. trust me, it was the short version ..
but I'm that excited ...
Here's a little bit of info about what you can expect to learn in the Spinning Babies Parent Class.
Spinning Babies® Parent Class highlights your baby’s active role in birth.
During labor the baby needs to pass through the three levels of the pelvis.
Learn techniques to help ease the discomforts of pregnancy, prepare your body for labor and help make room for baby to get into an optimal position for birth.
We'll learn about your bony pelvis along with the muscles, ligaments and soft tissue that support or restrict your pelvic levels. Together, you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for baby!”
Topics we'll also discuss:
Birth Anatomy Bonding with your baby during pregnancy Spinning Babies Techniques Daily Essential Activities
The Three Balances℠ help birth muscles to relax and add comfort now and ease to birth later. Birth Positions that open the pelvis that let the baby come through more easily
Bring your birth partner to learn how to help you in pregnancy for comfort in labor and birth
