2019
  • Spinning BabiesĀ® Workshop withTammy Ryan, AdvCD/BDT (DONA), SpBT - Understand the role of muscles and ligaments in preparation and progress in childbirth. Effects of posterior, solutions for transverse lie, and labor patterns when baby needs to rotate in the pelvis. Reduce unnecessary cesareans due to lack of progress in labor. Charge your practice with the new paradigm in childbirth by identifying where the baby is so you can:  *Align the uterus so baby can curl and enter the pelvis as a small, compact - and more active participant.  *Release tight ligaments or muscles which may pull or twist may relieve pelvic pain now or discomfort during birth.  *Open the pelvis to let baby move down during the birth process
