Spinning Babies® Parent Class FAQ
When in my pregnancy can I take the class? I recommend taking this class any time after 20 weeks in pregnancy, with benefits leading up to the very end of pregnancy. In the meantime, you might be interested in starting to practice the Daily Essentials.
Do I need to bring a partner to the class? If at all possible, yes! The class is designed for you to bring your partner or birth support person with you. You will be learning techniques and activities to do at home that require support for the birthing person. Please note that the class is not for birth professionals, and they will be referred to the Spinning Babies® Workshop.
Why should I take the in-person class instead of getting the DVD version? The in-person learning and practice of the activities and techniques is really valuable for most people. You’ll be able to learn and/or be assured that you’re doing the activities correctly. Additionally, we spend time really learning and understanding how your baby moves through your pelvis in labor. The activities and learning we do with this is knowledge you can take with you into labor. Plus you get bonus ebook materials!
Is this class the only childbirth education I need to take? The Spinning Babies® Parent Class is not a comprehensive childbirth class and yet it is not information covered in any other childbirth class. It is an approach to childbirth in which you will gain a thorough understanding of how to work with your body and make space for your baby both now and in labor. You’ll also learn techniques to help provide comfort in pregnancy. If this is your first labor and birth, you might want to consider additional education that will give you a thorough understanding of the stages of labor, comfort measures, breastfeeding and postpartum care.
