What is Spinning Babies®?
Spinning Babies® is an approach to childbirth that helps you get more comfort in pregnancy and ease in birth. The Spinning Babies® Parent Class highlights your baby’s active role in birth. During labor, your baby needs to pass through three levels of the pelvis. Learn techniques to help your pelvis and its muscles to support your pelvic levels. Together, you and your birth support person or partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for your baby.” Spinning Babies® reveals how baby can find optimal positions for labor, and make birth less painful, and even pleasurable!

(Notes: This class is for expectant parents. Birth professionals are referred to the Spinning Babies® Workshop. Please note that the Spinning Babies® Parent Class is not a comprehensive childbirth education class. You are recommended to take one if you can.)

What is class like?
Each Parent Class is a fun and interactive 3-hour class. You’ll be guided through a light and accessible prenatal yoga class to help you balance your body. Then you’ll learn additional body balancing practices that are to be done with your partner or birth support person. You will practice labor positions that open up each level of the pelvis to make as much room as possible for your baby to descend and rotate through. After class, you’ll receive handouts and a special e-companion book to help you review and retain the information you learned in class.
