How wonderful that we have found each other!

I warmly invite you into a world that encourages and inspires birthing women to return home to their inner knowing and trust in the beauty of their body's birthing wisdom. To remind you all that the ancient blueprint of birth is in your body as WOMB WISDOM! Remembering your sensual lineage, your sensual home as women. Come into the heart of birth and the heart of yourself as a woman. 

My name is Maha Al Musa and I am the Founder of  EmbodyBirth™ (One World Birth - Birth Heroes Award: Australia’s National Birth Hero), an Award Winning Author, an International Speaker and a Mother of three beautiful children, all born as nature intended. The last, my daughter, when I was 46 years of age in 2008 - a home water lotus birth. I breastfed her for 8 years and 3 months. I have walked the mothering path with purpose and with an open heart addressing the need for us all to be seen and heard on this sacred journey.

In our modern world, we are easily distracted by so many outside influences that it can be challenging to remain true to our authentic expression and inner knowing. My birth work and offerings restore the faith that a woman's body with her baby implicitly knows birth first and foremost. 

I deeply honor this language of the feminine as a spiritual rite of passage by always supporting the principle that MOTHER and BABY are at the centre of the experience as the experts.

I’d like to see "Mother Led Care" take precedence in maternal care. Seems everyone’s trying to lead but the mother!

I also intrinsically know that it is vital that birth professionals stand with women with a deep respect for HER expression with HER baby - we must endeavor to listen to women and support HER inner knowing. In fact I often say,

“Maybe we can be guided by her light and be illuminated by her path”. 

Thank you for being here and may you dance to the rhythm of the music as you give birth to the rhythm of your body and the rhythm of life.

I read Maha’s book whilst in Rio during the carnivale. What a unique opportunity to realise that dance is the most archaic form of art! No wonder that Maha can associate belly dancing with an event that involves the most archaic structures of the human brain!

Maha Al Musa’s writing is rooted in her personal observation and understanding of Arab birth culture, for whom birth traditionally is a powerful dance, and in which women work with the pain. She interprets it to help women in childbirth. Maha, I love the way you write. It is so personal yet has universal significance.

Maha Al Musa's descriptions of traditional Arab bellydancing in pregnancy and birth were inspiring - I have learnt a lot from her. The belly dance expresses the power of women to produce life. It is about connecting with the source of female sexuality.

Dance of the Womb is a superb resource for pregnancy and birth helping to anchor us in our female body and to find the rhythm and power of our pelvis. Maha's delicious blend includes a simple guide to belly dance, her timeless birthing wisdom and her own amazing journey as woman, mother and dancer. Highly recommended.

Your belly dance book and DVD are simply wonderful. I have mentioned them in the revised edition of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, which will be released in June 2010. You have done the world a huge service with this work. And the production values on the DVD are outstanding! Sincerely.
