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 your pelvis and it’s muscles 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!” Spinning Babies reveals how the baby can find optimal positions for labor, and make birth less painful.

Spinning Babies Parent Class is taught by a provisionally certified Spinning Babies® Parent Educator, and is for expectant parents only.
