Can you think of anything more fun than dancing with your baby as part of your postpartum recovery?
I must say that when mother of 3, Audrey Bready first told me that this is what she did I was impressed, but Audrey is a classical dancer after all. During our chat you’ll hear Audrey talk about loads of ways that dance is beneficial to your postpartum healing, including how it strengthens your musculature and pelvic floor and it’s advantages over a reliance solely on using kegels.
Audrey also talks about how it helped her heal from a traumatic birth that caused her injury.
As you will know if you’ve listened to my podcast previously, I’m all for anything that will help build a closer bond with your baby and you’ll hear Audrey talk about how she uses dance to connect and do this and how it helps her kids free their emotions and let them out.
And don’t worry if like me, you can’t spin like Najinsky or even the thought of doing splits makes your eyes water, Audrey has lots of ideas to help you get started.
