"By encouraging a woman to dance during her birth, we empower her to actively participate and rejoice in her labour, to embrace her labour's unique rhythm and unfolding, to love her voluptuous pregnant body, and to trust in her baby's and her own inner-knowledge of how to birth." - Stephanie Larson, Founder of Dancing For Birth™

What if you could harness gravity to your advantage during labor? How much more effective will birth be when you utilise 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? Dancing For Birth™ Founder, renowned birth expert Stephanie Larson, has innovated an effective new childbirth method that makes all this possible. Join a weekly Dancing For Birth™ class now and gain support that extends all the way through pregnancy, birth and motherhood. 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. Find a class near you.
Women often come to class simply for fun and fitness, and find that they gain more than they expected to. “This class was fun and informative. I love dancing and I was excited to learn a how to incorporate it into this whole [pregnancy and birth] experience. I gained great moves to help me feel good, and birthing positions and knowledge of what I can do to help me through labor”, said Melanie Eng, pregnant with her first child.
Babies whose mothers take Dancing For Birth™ prenatal and postnatal dance classes love the motion of dancing and are easily soothed after birth by being held while you dance. You will also regain your pre-pregnancy shape and tone more quickly when you continue Dancing For Birth™classes with your baby after their birth.
Enjoy the company of other like-minded women as you learn and share together in gaining information, knowledge and power to prepare you for birth and parenthood.
