Dancing Through Labor
*EDITED TO ADD* Thank you everyone for your positive comments! With so many comments, we just cannot keep up with them. So please, use common decency and only make positive comments. My last client of 2016 dancing her baby down through contractions at 6 cm dilated! As these questions have been asked many times, we're going t address them here: She's wearing the mesh underwear and pad because her water had broken and was leaking. She did not have pain medication for her birth. The woman dancing with her is her sister-in-law, not a nurse. The monitor on her belly is the Novii wireless fetal monitor from Monica Healthcare. It is a waterproof and wireless contraction and heart rate monitor.Posted by Birthing in Love, LLC on Friday, February 24, 2017
Although most moms wouldn't describe labor as a "fun" experience, some women take their minds off of the pain in a nontraditional way: with epic dance parties. We've seen women pole dance, Whip and Nae Nae, and even do the Tootsie Roll to distract themselves from the contractions — and their impressive moves don't disappoint.
In this cute video, a woman in labor sporting mesh underwear dances to V.I.C.'s "Wobble" with her sister-in-law. We can't help but smile over her infectious laughter and how much she seems to be enjoying this impromptu dance before welcoming her baby.
