Dancing For Birth TM at DONA International Conference,
Dancing For Birth TM prenatal/postpartum dance classes incorporate dance moves from around the world that best prepare you to give birth. Birth can be like a marathon, and Dancing for BirthTM classes prepare you for the challenge. You'll become stronger, more agile, more at ease with your body and both mentally and physically ready to embrace your unique birth experience. Weekly classes are offered to keep you dancing thru pregnancy, and postpartum with your baby.
Dancing for BirthTM prenatal/postpartum dance class participants report experiencing low levels of discomfort, few or no interventions, brief labors and high levels of satisfaction during their births.
You'll learn birth dancing moves inspired by Belly dance, African dance, Ballet, Latin dance and Interpretive movement. It's a feel-good workout that challenges yet relaxes and uplifts you. No experience necessary!
At the same time you'll be learning valuable childbirth preparation skills and natural pain coping techniques that will build your confidence in your own birthing ability and wisdom. Birth can be active, ecstatic, orgasmic, transformative, empowering! Did you know that there is an optimal position for your baby to be in when labor begins, and you can help assure that position? You'll gain knowledge to help you have the birth that you envision for your baby.
Babies whose moms take Dancing for BirthTM prenatal/postpartum dance classes love the motion of dancing and are easily soothed after birth by being held while you dance. You'll regain your pre-pregnancy shape and tone more quickly when you continue Dancing for BirthTM classes with your baby after he or she is born.
