[/et_pb_accordion_item][et_pb_accordion_item title=”What are the benefits of this calss for moms-to-be?”] You will experience organic and natural flowing movement that prepares your body for labor, learning flexibility and core-strengthening exercises appropriate for pregnancy, while literally moving pregnancy discomforts to ease back pain, leg cramps and sciatica. In addition, stress levels decrease and you will feel more comfortable and confident in your changing body to enjoy your pregnancy. [/et_pb_accordion_item][et_pb_accordion_item title=”How will Maternal Dance prepare me for labor and delivery?”] Maternal Dance is not only a fun way to prepare for labor as you increase body-awareness, maintain flexibility and build strength and endurance for delivery, your experience in class will leave you feeling invigorated and empowered to go through labor with a veteran teacher who is thorough and intuitive. [/et_pb_accordion_item][et_pb_accordion_item title=”At what stage of pregnancy can I start class, and how close to my due date can I dance?”] Any form of prenatal exercise should not be about getting in shape. The aim is to get in shape for labor. There are modifications for each trimester and class size is limited to get personalized attention. As long as you feel good and have doctor/midwife approval, you can start at any stage of pregnancy. [/et_pb_accordion_item][et_pb_accordion_item title=”How do your clients respond to this class, good results?”] Maternal Dancers often come back to after birth to share how attending class helped them have “the birth of their dreams,” and that Maternal Dance prepared them to enjoy their babies in the early “daze” of motherhood. Witnessing the mamas faces and energy levels as they leave class is probably the most confirming and joyful to witness. [/et_pb_accordion_item][et_pb_accordion_item title=”Do I need dance experience to attend Maternal Dance?”] No dance experience is necessary, and what’s old is new again. Just as we have rediscovered the importance of the role of a doula, prenatal dance was the original form of exercise to help a woman birth her baby and celebrate the life growing inside of her. Non-dancers will learn the natural movements that benefit the rhythm of the birthing process, and just like any dance technique, dancers discover a dance form that is designed specifically for their pregnant body to prepare for labor and delivery – everyone benefits!
