    That was a very cool post! I have heard that even just moving your hips like you are doing a hula hoop can help move the baby into the right position. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks ladies. I just made a couple of minor updates to the post after e-mailing the link to Morocco, who gave me a little feedback (she's actually been doing this for over 50 years now, and I had 48 on there ). It now includes links to videos showing the two specific movements from Oriental/belly dance that are actually based on childbirth. If you didn't read the linked article from her and you can make time to later, READ IT, it's awesome.

    oh, and Christy, there is a training for the Dancing for Birth Instructor cert. in Seattle in August and I would really like to go, but I'm not sure if it will work out since I have a doula client (my first paying client--she has actually given me a check for her deposit already!) due pretty close to that time, and Seattle is over 2 hours away, so...I don't know.

    You have me very intrigued! I have heard of women swaying their hips during labor but never thought there was really anything to it. I will have to try it with my next baby! I did rock a little bit when I was on my hands and knees but didn't notice much of a difference, probably not quite the same as swaying or rolling your hips. I'm totally intrigued now! Great blog post!

    Rocking and doing hula hoop motions with my hips was the ONLY thing that kept this last labour do-able. I've never done it in the past and didn't even think about 'why' I was doing it this time, but I bet it was my body's way of moving my babe out of OP position.

    Great post!

    I just talked to my neighbor and found out that her daughters teach belly dance! Middle Eastern to be precise.

    Here is their website.
