"I am a doula to a mom with Mo/Di twins. I recommended SpinningBabies to her since her wee ones are transverse right now. She spoke with her Dr. who said to avoid the Spinning Babies exercises stating they were not safe for her type of twins.
I would like to know your opinions and thoughts on this. "
My response may help those of you who are facing two seemingly opposing points of view.
|Your hand will follow the tension later in the release|
Think of the cervical ligaments and their fibrous, living rope, connection to the pelvis, particularly the sacrum. If we can't "move the lower uterine segment" via the forward-leaning inversion, is there a way to mobilize the sacrum gently without inversion? Seek these ways. Seek a greater connection to the babies and a more parasympathetic nervous system state. So calm and open though inward and peaceful, rather than alert and aware.
There is much we can do even though there is something we can't do. Seek the way to "yes" without orienting yourselves against the "no." Then you will find the parasympathetic state of maternal hormones.
In 2001, before Dr. Carol Phillips conceived of the forward-leaning inversion, I helped a friend with approximately 7 pound transverse twins. We did Rebozo and a thorough abdominal massage (not a relaxation massage but working with fascia and smooth muscle, much like Maya Massage) and an abdominal myofascial release. After these three, her babies when head down.
There is always more than one way to "yes."
