Integrated Prenatal and Perinatal Dynamics Module 3

Physiological Birth Dynamics

Welcome to Module 3: Physiological Birth

In this module, you will identify the birth sequence patterns for mother/birthing parent and baby that may happen without any interventions.

  • The midwifery model of care
  • Understanding the birth sequence, natural birth and labor and delivery
  • Identification of pelvis shapes and bony landmarks that the baby encounters in the birth process
  • Learning from the inside out about the baby's experience by identifying your birth journey, and your own sequence
  • How to make repairs for difficult births, part one

The clinical skills you will learn include:

  • Slipping into the space
  • Harmonizing the surround
  • Two layers of support
  • Speeding up and slowing down
  • The importance of "Baby Time"
  • Calling a pause
  • Identifying vectors and compression
  • Leading Edge
  • Deepening and broadening states
  • Creative Opposition, Dynamic Squeeze
