Changing the perspective of physiological birth

with Gail Tully

Gail Tully of Spinning Babies on the Pros Talk Pregnancy Podcast with Lindsay McCoy

If you’ve been around the birth world for any amount of time you have likely heard of Spinning Babies®. Today Gail Tully, founder and visionary behind Spinning Babies® joins me at my home to talk all things physiological birth and shifting the paradigm. Gail is truly a trail blazer who has and continues to inspire the next generation of birth professionals, and parents to continue to stay curious, to learn and deepen their awareness, and to heal birth on earth.

In this heart to heart episode, Gail goes nostalgic and shares what inspired her to get into this work. She shares the story of her first pregnancy and birth as a teen and how that got her interested in birth work. We get a glimpse of her relationship with her midwife. And, how beautiful a birther’s experience can be when we are all on the same side.

Gail and I also discuss how births have changed over the years. Including the possible reasons why births are not like how they used to be in the 70s and the 80s. We also discuss physiological births and what impacts it the most.


Creating a balance in the birth practice is important; knowing what to do when, when to use physiological techniques, when to use medical interventions and when to just wait and watch, letting nature do its work. Providing individualized care to each client according to their labor patterns and their physical needs is SO needed!

Listen in to catch SO many mic-drop quotables and stories from Gail. If you’re a complete birth nerd like me, you’ll truly enjoy this one.

It is an honor to have Gail joining us again as faculty for the Body Ready Method® Professional Training. Her insights, wisdom, and stories are just the balm our birth pro souls need.
