Belly dance was originally created by women to help prepare them for pregnancy and birth.  This introductory workshop teaches the ancient technique to ease all phases of the birth journey (conception, pregnancy, labor and recovery). We will cover the fundamental movements, which moves to use when, how to dance through labor (including contractions), birthing positions, papa’s role in labor and why this technique is so effective.  Mothers are encouraged to bring papas or someone on their birth team who can dance with them during labor.

A weekly practice is encouraged to help make the movements a part of the mother’s muscle memory.  However, even a one-time workshop has helped many mamas and babies enjoy more gentle, empowered births.

(Payments are refundable / transferrable up until 7 days before the class ~ unless there are extenuating circumstances.  Transferred credit must be used within 3 months.)

A sweet circle of support for anyone on the birth journey, whether wishing to conceive, already pregnant or in post-natal recovery. This circle will be a combination of pre-natal/post-natal yoga, belly dance for birth and verbal sharing.

For the dancing portion, we will learn fundamental belly dance moves, which moves to use when, how to guide a baby into optimal position, how to relax during contractions and why this technique works for all phases of the birth journey. A weekly practice helps the movements become a part of the body’s muscle memory so that a woman can glide easily into the dance during labor.

Each circle will also help everyone empower themselves for birth and parenthood as a rite of passage.  You will connect with other parents, receive mentoring and support, explore fears of birth and parenthood, learn how to move with those fears and visualize your ideal birth. Topics can include healing your own birth, making peace with your parents, viewing birth as a natural process, making your birth a ceremony, loving your mama body, connecting as couples, choosing a birth team and learning to ask for support.

Community support is tremendously helpful on the journey towards birth and parenting.  Many parents feel greatly relieved knowing that they are making this journey together with other parents nearby.  Through this online learning option, you can gather together a small group (3-8) of mamas, papas and birth practitioners in your community to learn Birth Dancing online together, and prepare for birth as a sacred rite of passage.  Everyone can gather in one place, one computer, for the personal connection so helpful in preparing for birth.  Or, each person can be on their own device.  Descriptions of workshops and series on this page.
