As one of the only Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educators in the Greater Houston Area, I am delighted to bring you the new Online Guided Spinning Babies® Parent Class. Though the format may be different from the in-person class, the content, connection, and loving support are the same.
Spinning Babies provides an approach for comfort and ease in pregnancy and childbirth, highlighting your baby’s active role. “The baby’s job in labor is to rotate, the birthing person’s job is to dilate!” We believe that a baby’s position can significantly impact when labor begins and how it progresses. Yet, thinking only of the size of the baby or the pelvis isn’t enough. Birth anatomy can be flexible. Both the uterus and the pelvis have more available room when the muscles and other soft tissues (ligaments and fascia) are balanced.
The Parent Class introduces parents to the basic techniques for comfort in pregnancy and ease in birth. This three-hour class adds confidence and skills for the birth partner and reassurance for the birthing mother.
Together you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor. Spinning Babies® reveals how the baby can find optimal positions and birth less painful, and even pleasurable!
