Spinning Babies®

The Prenatal Massage Center of Manhattan is proud to be offering Spinning Babies® Certified Aware Body Balancing sessions, a must for all expectant moms starting at or around thirty weeks!

Spinning Babies® is an approach that uses maternal physiology and fetal positioning to add comfort in pregnancy, more ease in birth and beyond.

Spinning Babies® Body Balancing sessions are intended to promote:

  • Spontaneous change to allow optimal fetal position, where space is available in the womb.
  • Progress and less pain in labor
  • Baby to move themselves into the new space made by reducing tensions and torsions in muscles and ligaments

Spinning Babies® Body Balancing sessions are beneficial for all moms-to-be and especially helpful to those carrying breech, transverse or posterior presenting babies. In addition to reviewing Spinning Babies® Daily Essentials, soft tissue techniques will be performed to help soften ligaments and loosen restricted fascia that ultimately make space for baby to
find its’ optimal position for a vaginal birth

What is Spinning Babies®?

The Prenatal Massage Center of Manhattan is proud to be offering Spinning Babies® Certified Aware Body Balancing sessions, a must for all expectant moms starting at or around twenty four weeks of pregnancy! As the only massage facility in NYC to perform this service, we are excited to bring this to expectant mothers in the tri-state area.

Developed and conceived by midwife Gail Tully over 20 years ago, Spinning Babies® is an approach that uses maternal physiology and fetal positioning to add comfort in pregnancy and more ease in birth & beyond. Each session utilizes specific massage techniques to help bring balance to the body, encouraging comfort in pregnancy and optimal fetal position for a smooth, normal, and natural childbirth. Following the bodywork portion of the session, we teach and review Spinning Babies® activities that clients can then do daily at home.

What to expect at a Spinning Babies® Body Balancing session?

When a client comes to the Prenatal Massage Center for a Spinning Babies® appointment, we like to first discuss the current positioning of their baby. From there, we can set some goals for the session so that the client and the therapist are on the same page. Finally, we perform the hands-on treatment, making sure that the client can learn the Spinning Babies® techniques that they can subsequently perform on themselves at home.

Results

Because each client and pregnancy varies so widely, the results from Spinning Babies® also vary depending on the client. Some clients require multiple sessions while others may feel satisfied with one or two. We cater the appointment and treatment plan to the pregnant person’s body, the baby’s positioning, and the client’s needs.

FAQ

Is Spinning Babies® only for those carrying breech?

This unique and revolutionary technique helps bring balance to the pregnant body and helps all babies get into position for birth, supporting a normal, even natural, childbirth.

However, while many pregnant people we see are carrying breech and are anxious about the position of their babies, we encourage these individuals to do the daily in-home techniques coupled with coming to see us for Spinning Babies® Body Balancing sessions. Ultimately, whether breech or not, the goal is to deliver a healthy baby while also encouraging the baby to turn.
