What is Dancing For Birth about? 

Dancing For Birth classes teach a “language of movement” specially designed for women in any stage of pregnancy and for postpartum women. The movements are inspired by world dance forms like Belly dance, African dance, and Latin dance. The 90-minute weekly classes, which fuse dance fitness with childbirth education, are the wave of the future of birth and resonate with women. “Modern day women want to celebrate birth and be transformed by it.” says Founder Stephanie Larson. “They have innate wisdom of how to give birth, and Dancing For Birth classes help awaken their abilities.”

Founded in 2001, Dancing For Birth is the leading global class for pregnant and new mums. We provide the “trifecta” of birth preparation: feel-good antenatal fitness, cutting-edge birth wisdom, and celebration of the birth journey all rolled into a weekly 90 minute class. Created by USA’s National Birth Hero, Founder, Stephanie Larson, the classes are currently offered on four continents. Birth professionals and mums alike swear by our signature moves like “Dilation Gyration” and even use them during labour to make birth shorter, easier and safer.

Re-imagine Birth
What if you could harness gravity to your advantage during labour? 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 way to birth 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 postpartum. 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.

Why Dance?
Dancing is a fun and gentle exercise that everyone can enjoy, even if you’ve been told you have two left feet! 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. Dancing For Birth™ classes can help you to feel great during pregnancy, improve foetal wellness and have an empowered and easier birth.
