Presented by Brittany Sharpe McCollum CCE(BWI), CD(DONA), CLC
In this one-hour, interactive webinar, Brittany Sharpe McCollum will guide participants in exploring how laboring people can facilitate progress in labor by creating space within the three planes of the pelvis. Participants will visualize simple ways of connecting pelvic movement to the station of the baby. Emphasis will be placed on better understanding the relationship between labor positions and movements to encourage the baby's descent and rotation. Movement will be explored in both big and small ways, with a focus on supporting both medicated and unmedicated births in reducing unnecessary intervention through a biomechanical approach. Although the approach is completely non-clinical, this evidence-based content can easily be incorporated into the practices of both clinical and non-clinical labor support with the intention of restoring autonomy to the laboring person and supporting the physiological process.
Brittany Sharpe McCollum is a doula, childbirth educator, and perinatal pelvic biomechanics educator based out of the greater Philadelphia area. Brittany has been providing research-based childbirth education and pelvic dynamics workshops since 2006 and supports expecting parents while also facilitating workshops on effective movement in labor to both clinical and non-clinical birth support providers. She has been an honored guest at conferences including Evidence Based Birth, NNEPQIN, Midwifery Forward, and more. She is also a contributing author to Baby Got VBAC: An Inspiring Collection of Wisdom for Better Births After Cesarean and is the creator of the Blossing Bellies 5/4/3 Rule for Labor Progress. Brittany resides in Southern New Jersey with her husband, four children, and wild dog.
