Reviews and endorsements originated in Australia where the instructor, Maha al Musa, wrote the book and first produced the original, single-disc DVD.

Positive reviews from obstetricians, doulas and other birthing professionals are accumulating, as are testimonials from women who have benefited from Maha's video.

Natural Birth and Less Pain During Pregnancy and Labor

Pregnant women are seeking a drug-free approach to limit pain during pregnancy, labor and birthing. Expectant mothers in the United States and other Western countries are recognizing the limitations of contemporary Western medicine to provide a natural birth experience that is safe, comfortable and healthy for mothers and their unborn babies. Each day, more women are discovering the remarkable benefits of belly dance as they seek a natural birth method and drug-free techniques to avoid or limit pregnancy discomfort and labor pain,

Women who have previously experienced back pain, hip pain, or leg discomfort during pregnancy report that Dance of the Womb stretches, warm ups and belly dance movements really work. Practicing the stretches and toning exercises alleviates their pain more quickly and thoroughly than anything else they have tried. Maha al Musa's belly dance tutorial provides a traditional and natural method to relieve pregnancy pain that is safer and more effective for you and your baby than pain medications and other drugs associated with contemporary Western medicine.

Dance of the Womb -- Teaches Birth Dance

Maha al Musa’s 2-disc DVD, Dance of the Womb: A Gentle Guide to Belly Dance for Pregnancy & Birth, presents belly dance in its most original form: a birth dance to tone the pelvic muscles in preparation for the challenge of giving birth. Maha teaches you how to use the movements of this traditional dance to soothe and center you through labor. You also will learn active birthing techniques that enable you to actively bring your baby into the world. Practiced correctly under Maha's patient guidance, you will strengthen your birthing muscles, while toning your back, hips, abdomen and legs. As your strength and flexibility increase, you can expect less back pain, and reduced leg and hip pain during your pregnancy. And you will feel the satisfaction that arises from knowing you are protecting yourself and your unborn baby by practicing an active, natural birth method used successfully for centuries.

Dance of the Womb DVD Set -- Disc One of Two

Disc One contains a 45-minute warm-up that includes pelvic floor exercises, targeted stretching and positions that reduce labor pain and enable active birth. Following the warm-up are six dance chapters that teach you specific movements, as well as how and why to use each movement when you are in labor. Maha’s instruction is clear and gentle. The music is beautiful and meditative. The reminders to center and connect with your baby and your self will relax you and melt away your tension.

Dance of the Womb DVD Set -- Disc Two of Two

Disc Two includes a beautifully filmed 50-minute documentary of Maha’s natural homebirth at the age of 46, demonstrating belly dance in practice during labor. Two midwives discuss the benefits of these techniques with Maha for both mother and baby’s wellbeing. This film is a wonderful demonstration of how to use belly dance to aid and ease your own labor. Most women find it profoundly moving and encouraging to watch a natural birth unfold so smoothly and safely, as the mother (Maha) exhibits remarkable inner strength and peace. Disc Two also includes an inspiring dance video of Maha, dancing with effortless grace when she is 34 weeks pregnant.
