Spinning Babies is an approach to optimize the physical relationship between the bodies of the mother and baby for the easing of childbirth.
- Aligning the uterus allows the baby to curl and enter the pelvis as a small, compact and active participant.
- Releasing tight tissues which pull or twist releases pelvic pain now or discomfort during birth.
- Supporting what’s loose in the womb or pelvis with a pregnancy belt.
- Opening the pelvis to widen the path of the baby during the birth process.
- Sharing this birth wisdom with parents and providers in ever deepening layers of understanding birth
