Melanin Milk SD Birthing Education Class + Spinning Babies®
Parent Class Module
I'm A Provisional Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator
Spinning Babies® is an approach for ease and comfort in pregnancy and childbirth.
Looking for a childbirth class?
We believe that fetal positions are not random, that babies fit the space available. Yet, thinking of the size of the baby or the pelvis is not enough. Birth anatomy can be flexible. Both the uterus and the pelvis have more available room when the muscles and other soft tissues are balanced.
"Easier birth with fetal positioning”
-Gail Tully, midwife & creator of Spinning Babies®
In-Home or Virtual Private Class
I will come to your home and provide hands-on instruction in the Spinning Babies® approach to preparing your body for birth.
The Spinning Babies® Parent Class highlights your baby’s active role in birth.
During labor, the baby needs to pass through the three levels of the pelvis.
Baby’s job in labor is to rotate!
Labor takes teamwork
Learn techniques to help your pelvis and its muscles that support or restrict your pelvic levels. Together, you and your birth partner can use these techniques before and during labor to help “make room for baby!”
When you register, you'll receive a link to several online resources including the Spinning Babies® Parent Class Companion eBook to help you remember what you've learned and to facilitate daily practice, and use the activities during labor.

No Doula. No Problem.
I'm a Spinning Babies Enthusiast, I love it so much I decided to certify to incorporate it into my birthing education materials for people to have a way to feel confident giving birth without a professional support person. I whole heartedly believe in this method and have seen it work for all of my families. It is an amazing birthing support tool that is even now used by some nurses in hospital settings, especially if you will not have a doula present at your birth, this is must know information for a more informed birthing process.
“I didn’t know I needed this but as a support person for my wife I feel so much more informed and prepared to deploy method that may be helpful to my wife. This is our first child so I appreciate having this knowledge.”
