Women who remember what it's like to be pregnant gasp in wonder at this video. How does she balance herself, much less dance en pointe, so close to giving birth? It helps if you are in tip-top shape and know what you are doing -otherwise, don't try this at home. This is prima ballerina Maia Makhateli of the National Opera & Ballet of the Netherlands. A couple of years ago, she recorded several clips of herself dancing while pregnant. Not too long after this video was taken, she gave birth to her son Luka.
