Spinning Babies
Spinning Babies offers online instruction for rotation and positioning during the last phase of pregnancy. Though the maternity provider is focused on cervical dilation, labor progress is often dependent on baby’s rotation. To fit the pelvis, the baby often rotates, or spins around, to face mother’s back—and does so whenever possible. Spinning Babies shows how to make rotation easier for the baby.
