Healthy Start Brooklyn (HSB) recently added Dancing Thru Pregnancy to its services. Our DTP classes, as with our childbirth education and doula programs, offer our clients free services that are available to more affluent women to help offset some these inequalities that can have a negative impact on birth outcomes. We enjoy seeing our clients coming back to class every week. Some of them have very little support systems in their lives, and it is extremely rewarding to see them participate in class each week and stay after class to talk to each other and share stories.
