Maha Al Musa shares her personal journey towards motherhood through the eyes of her East-West cultural perspective. Her tale of self-discovery is beautifully interwoven with the teaching of simple, practical prenatal belly dance moves. Her teaching is earthy, non-judgmental and non-pretentious.
ALL belly dance moves are accompanied with detailed images and instructions which make belly dance and pregnancy easy to combine.
Maha had a natural conception and gave birth to her third child at home at the age of 46 in 2008. She was classed as geriatric by the medical establishment, yet she knew through conceiving naturally and being healthy that her pregnancy and birth would be normal and natural. When Maha was 34 weeks pregnant she went to see her doctor for her blood test results and he told her;
“You do realize that something could go wrong and you should book into a hospital for the birth.”
Maha smiled at him and said;
“Thank you for your concern but no thanks. What about if everything goes right?”
The inspiring and renowned International Childbirth Educator and Speaker, Founder of EmbodyBirth™ and BellydanceBirth®, Pregnancy/Birth Consultant and Award Winning Author, Maha Al Musa has been working with pregnant women and birth professionals since 1997.
By focusing on the heart of belly dance, Maha encourages all women across the globe to tune into their primal feminine power and innate birthing knowledge, using the belly dance as a tool for empowered birth.
“Birth unites women in the power of oneness; the extraordinary gift we deeply share as mothers. Bellydance for Birth reflects this very same essence of life and love.” ~ Maha Al Musa.
Dance of the Womb is more than just a detailed instruction manual for exercise in pregnancy, it is also a beautifully crafted story of Maha’s life interwoven with the details of each belly dance movement. The dance movements and their spiritual, emotional and physical application in turn serve to illustrate Maha’s experiences on her journey from maiden to mother.
