The Alexander Technique is a movement-awareness philosophy used by all types of performers, and can be very beneficial for women during pregnancy, labor, and eventual parenthood. The technique focuses on alignment, balance, and coordination and students work towards getting the mind and body working together. To prepare for labor, Alexander instructors teach women to sit and squat comfortably, to release the pelvic floor and work with gravity as the baby descends through the birth canal.
