DID YOU KNOW?
I am currently the only Spinning Babies® Certified Parent Educator in Calgary, AB. I am proud to bring the official Parent Class to expecting parents in the city and beyond!
When midwife Gail Tully created this unique approach to birth, she created a true paradigm shift in the birth world. Putting physiological release before mechanical manipulation or force, she has brought forward a rich collection of body-centered tools, both for parents and providers.
Through pregnancy activities for more comfort and natural labour strategies to ease birth, we gently restore the mother's body balance and make space for the baby to find a more optimal position.
These techniques can be used in any birth setting, childbirth program, or pain management plan.

This class is appropriate during second or third trimester. It can be taken as early as 20 weeks.
The class is an excellent complement to any childbirth education course and the techniques learned can be used in any birth setting, childbirth program, or pain management plan.

Spinning Babies® Parent Class
The Spinning Babies® created a class specifically for you, expecting parents. The Spinning Babies Parent Class shows you what to do for an easier birth with practical and detailed preparation to help baby in the best position to fit the pelvis and solutions when labor seems long, painful, or has a stall.

The class offers activities and gentle release techniques for pregnancy and labour to restore the pregnant body's balance and optimize your baby's position in preparation for birth.

Once you will have watched the Parent Class, we'll be ready to schedule our virtual session together via Zoom.

"We first heard about the Spinning Babies program through our midwife and we knew it was a program that we wanted to use in helping to prepare for the birth of our first child. We researched educators in our area and came across Rose - Marie and I'm so glad we did! Rose-Marie was not only available to answer and troubleshoot all of our questions but she worked with us to correct and refine each technique, ensuring we did each pose safely and correctly. The option to Zoom with her (especially in 2020) made us feel safe without compromising her personalized approach and attention. She is warm and friendly - and we felt at ease and felt in control and empowered after our session! Rose-Marie explained all of the principles in a detailed yet easy to understand method - without using too many technical or science terms! Highly recommend using not only the Spinning Babies program but going with a professional like Rose-Marie, it makes ALL the difference to ensure you are performing each technique properly. Thank you again for your expertise Rose-Marie!"
"We really enjoyed this class. This is what we were looking for from a prenatal type of class for the second time around, to feel more prepared and have some tools for mostly labour but also the last weeks of pregnancy. Rose did such a fantastic job of teaching this class.Everything was well explained and demonstrated. We feel more confident after this class with trying out the suggested pregnancy and labour techniques. She allowed for questions and gave detailed answers. Her calm and positive presence is a great addition to her class. Would highly recommend this to others."
"The class was recommended to me by my chiropractor. I'm glad I took it. The information was fantastic."
