Spinning Babies® 2021 World Confluence

Virtual Conference

Pre-Conference Oct 22

Main Conference Oct 23 & 24

Integrating a New Paradigm

The Spinning Babies® 4th annual conference brings birth professionals online to integrate a paradigm of Physiology Before Force. How do we prioritize physiology when a pregnancy or labor needs our support? Physiology can mean more than “natural birth”. Enjoy new discoveries in anatomy, hormones, and techniques. Our changing world needs a third perspective, one where physiology informs the way to balance.

Watch Live or When It’s Best for You

Attend from the comfort of home and connect with other midwives, labor and delivery nurses, physicians, doulas, childbirth educators, and pregnancy-focused bodyworkers. Watch sessions live or view recordings at your convenience with access to all presentations and materials from the beginning of the conference to March 23, 2022.

Revolutionize Your Practice

Meet and learn from international speakers and our Approved Trainers who will take the Spinning Babies® concepts further into informed application. Benefit from a new birth perspective that midwives and nurses say “blew my mind” and “changed my practice even after 20 years of practice.”

Is the Conference for Me?

Would you like to help make birth easier for pregnant parents?

The Spinning Babies® World Confluence is for those who work with pregnant families or anyone who’s passionate about improving pregnancy and birth outcomes. You'll get inspired by the creator of Spinning Babies® and Midwife Gail Tully along with other top speakers in the birth world, learn physiological birth practices that can change birth on Earth, and revolutionize your work with pregnant people!

Spinning Babies® helps parents experience the birth they desire. Learn practical and simple solutions to labor dystocia and a midwife, nurse, or doula can use the knowledge to see a reduction in cesarean deliveries immediately. Easier birth is possible.

What Will I Learn?

If you'd like to learn from an incredible lineup of speakers about important topics like preventing trauma to both birthing person and baby during labor, how to proactively prepare pregnant people for their optimal birth experience, and physiological birth practices, the Spinning Babies® World Confluence is where you'll explore all of this—and more. Network with other attendees and participate in audience Q&A with our presenters all from the comfort of home. Learn more about the Spinning Babies® approach to birth and how you can apply it to your work with pregnant families. You'll never see birth the same again.

There hasn’t been anything this big in the birth world for a long time, since Janet Balaskas… nah, this is bigger.
