What's Dancing For Birth™?
What if birth could be blissful, powerful, and life-changing instead of scary and painful? What if birth could make you feel more whole and more ready to care for your baby, instead of depleted or traumatized? It can!
Dancing For Birth™ is creating a huge shift in the way people give birth, and dramatically improving birth outcomes. We're a worldwide community and a growing movement to bring bliss and ease to birth through dance. Dancing For Birth™ is a mom-owned, social-entrepreneurship, small business founded in the USA in 2000.
We are dedicated to elevating the pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experiences of families and birth professionals all over the world, by holding the vision for, and creating, a radically different model of birth—based on our principles of movement, gravity, and instinct.
