at the top of the Jan 12 DDC it still has the huge plea for moms to sign up to review a belly dancing DVD when the deadline for applying was October 30th. It's really annoying to have this huge block of text there, it was annoying when it was there for a reason and it is doubly annoying now that it has been almost 3 weeks since the deadline.
"Hi Pregnant Mamas!
Emily at BirthAdventure.com has the Maha al Musa’s 2-disc DVD, “Dance of the Womb: A Gentle Guide to Belly Dance for Pregnancy & Birth,” to offer 5 members of the Mothering community to try out and let other pregnant moms and birth professionals know about. “Dance of the Womb” presents belly dance in its most original form: a birth dance to tone your pelvic muscles and aid them in their work, to soothe and center you in labor and to guide you actively through the process of bringing your baby into the world. The Bellydancebirth® movements are also a great aid for back pain during pregnancy. Disc 1 includes a warm-up and 6 dance chapters, targeting specific movements useful during pregnancy & labor – an excellent prenatal workout plus birthing tool! Disc 2 features a beautiful 50-minute documentary of the instructor’s homebirth (at age 46!) using the belly dance movements, and includes commentary by two midwives on the effectiveness of these movements for both mother and baby.
