Healthy moms have healthy babies.
Prepare for your little one with our Dancing thru Pregnancy® classes! DTP’s Dance and Total Pregnancy Fitness™ formats provide a variety of classes, focusing on endurance, labor movement, relaxation, strength, postnatal core recovery, realignment, and more.
Recent studies have shown that there are many benefits to exercising throughout pregnancy:
- Relief from discomfort.
- Reduced risk for some pregnancy disorders, including gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.
- Improved delivery of oxygen and nutrients, reducing risks to the baby.
- Increased stamina before, during and after labor.
- Less need for intervention during labor and birth.
- Quicker recovery following birth.
Dancing thru Pregnancy classes are structured to create a safe environment for you as you prepare for your child’s birth, combining aerobics and special strengthening exercises with centering, relaxation and group support. Some locations also offer postnatal classes to help your body recover from pregnancy and lose those last few pounds.
Millions of moms have benefited from Dancing thru Pregnancy classes. Many have specifically mentioned some of our exercises as having helped tremendously during labor.
K.R. says that she went without meds and, “thanks to those C-curves, I only pushed for 15 minutes!” P.S. also mentions our C-curves exercises, saying that she “pushed out the baby in 45 minutes without tearing.” And others come back after the birth as well; R.N. loved her DTP classes so much that she “can’t wait to join the mom and baby class and enjoy a good workout.”
DTP’s Dance and Total Pregnancy Fitness™ classes can be attended before, during and after pregnancy, although we recommend that you talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise program if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
