As Shirley told us in the Ballet forum, Darcey Bussell is expecting a baby and plans to continue her dancing after the baby is born.
More dancers have babies now than ever before. I don't have any children myself, but many women I went to school with are starting to have babies. Does anyone have any insider knowledge on what it's like to have a baby and keep dancing? Or opinions on when is the right time in a dancer's career to consider having a baby? What are the physical implications for dancers? I have heard that it's sometimes difficult for dancers to deliver babies because of the strong wall of stomach muscles. Is this truth or fiction?
P.S. I know this came up in the Pregnancy?
thread in Dec/99 but it didn't go very far, only 3 posts!! Someone must have some info!
