I was helping a mom during labor a few days ago and she was having a hard time getting baby to engage. I remembered back to my spinning babies training and we did the abdominal lift for ten contractions. After the third lift, things started changing. She sat on the birth ball and did figure eights for about 15 contractions.
We repeated that cycle many times. Baby was engaged and she went from 4cm to complete in about two and half hours.
Is your labor doula trained in how to use Spinning Babies?
