Dancing for Birth™


Whether you are 10 weeks or 35 weeks, any class you attend is beneficial!

What if you could harness gravity to your advantage during labor? How much more effective will birth be when you utilize the pushing position that as much as doubles the size of your pelvic outlet for ease of birth? How would your birth plans change if you knew how to move your body in order to correct your baby’s breech or posterior position?

Founded in 2001, Dancing For Birth™, this fun prenatal class is empowering and educational. It is an opportunity to meet other expecting mothers in the community, feel more energized during your pregnancy and learn natural coping techniques for labour.

With each class you’ll learn techniques that support a safer, easier birth, and you’ll increase your confidence for empowered, enjoyable birth and mothering. Students will spend time connecting with their baby, understanding the science of how movement can help get them into the optimal position for labour (anterior facing).

Easy and fun hip movements are the basis of the classes, incorporating concepts from Belly Dance, African Dance, Latin Dance and more! This is the perfect time to connect with your body and your baby through movement and awareness. You have primal and powerful birth instincts within you, awaiting activation. You’ll be surprised at the numerous benefits for your pregnancy, your birth, your baby and your postpartum recovery.
