This truly inspiring 2-disc DVD from Australian doula and Bellydancebirth® founder, Maha al Musa, offers instruction in belly dance for prenatal fitness and toning as well as a powerful tool for birthing in tune with your body and baby. The program has clear instructions that are easy and gentle to follow and is designed to help empower you in pregnancy, relieve back and hip pain, alleviate fears, and encourage you to trust in your body's birthing wisdom. Disc Two features a 50-minute film of Maha's homebirth at 46 years of age, documenting belly dance in practice during labor. Two midwives discuss the benefits of these techniques for both mother and baby's well being. Bellydancebirth® practice is low impact, increases flexibility and circulation, helps to naturally reduce lower back and hip pain, strengthens core muscles, and is great for the pelvic floor. Endorsed by Australia's National Association of Childbirth Educators and the Australian Doula College.

Bellydancebirth® offers women an ancient, completely natural tool to birth in tune with their bodies and hearts. Because the movements target the muscles most used during labor and most taxed during pregnancy, Bellydancebirth® gives relief from many of the aches and pains of pregnancy and birth. Bellydancebirth® is a joyous, enjoyable, and sensual preparation and celebration of your pregnant body! (if you're just looking for individual words/phrases here: pregnancy fitness, birth preparation, relief from lower back/hip/sciatica pain, natural birth, ancient techniques for modern times).
