Ever hear those stories of being in labor for 46 hours or stuck at 8 centimeters and had a c-section for failure to progress? Yeah, I know you have. Thankfully, spinning babies techniques are here to help.
Spinning babies is a project of recorded techniques for optimal fetal positioning founded by midwife, Gail Tully, on her website, spinningbabies.com
This website and it’s accompanying techniques are unique because it comprises thousands of years’ worth of midwifery wisdom and physical therapy for pregnancy/birth nearly lost to obstetrics – when epidurals became a standard of care and c-sections were easily performed.
Nowadays, because women are mostly drugged during birth, the need for these techniques has become nearly obsolete in the hospital setting, leaving the knowledge about them to the midwives and alternative health practitioners.
The doctors can offer little to help if you can’t move and plus, they make a boatload more money when they do a c-section, so why bother with techniques?
If having a non-surgical birth is important to you and your clients, definitely check out today’s video to learn about which spinning babies techniques I use most often on my clients during labor.
For the past week, I’ve been telling you about various techniques to aid in optimal fetal positioning so you or your clients have shorter labors and avoid the need for a c-section due to fetal malpositioning or malpresentation (as 90% of c-sections are due to this reason). If you missed the previous 4 techniques, you can find them here:
and today, we’re talking about spinning babies techniques I use with my clients most often during labor.
