A mother who shared videos of herself dancing throughout her pregnancy has shared the first photos of her newborn son.

Sharon Pakir, a professional salsa dancer from Melbourne, Australia, kept up her routines until three days before giving birth.

"I think the hardest time was the first trimester, I was nauseous and exhausted. But I felt amazing in my second and third trimester," she told Daily Mail Australia

Pakir also performed on stage until the end of her second trimester, even travelling to Miami to compete in the World Latin Dance Club when nine weeks pregnant - scoring the title of second best in the world.

The 34-year-old is now a mother to seven-week-old Charlie, and has been dancing for a total of nine years.

Throughout her pregnancy she posted videos to her Facebook page showing herself performing the Cha Cha and spinning with her dance partner - all with her baby bump proudly on show.

Watch her incredible moves below:

A snippet from this week's Cha Cha class at @spincitydance that I taught. Finding as I lead up to the end of this pregnancy, that I can only teach 2 hours in a night now (to be fair, after my day job all day!!). It's worth the swollen feet after because nothing makes my heart sing quite like dancing and teaching and music. #lovemyjob #dancer #dancelife #dancemoms #dancecoach #mumpreneur #spincitydance #spinning #latindance #happypants #gwepaaa #salsa #chacha #mambo #on2 #melbourne #australia #pregnancystyle #pregnantlife #pregfit #pregnancy #3rdtrimester #almostthere #babybump #fitpregnancy #fitmum #dreamteam @lionelsteinberg @sharnyandjulius @socialdancetv @gwepa

8 months pregnant and spinning!

8 months pregnant, multiple spins. Take 2, because the rubber soled shoes the other night were crap to spin in. Tonight we got up to 43 spins. Here's an excerpt! verdict? It's a lot harder to spin now at speed because my core isn't what it used to be and counterbalance is hard. But it still feels glorious to be moving and dancing!! this baby had better come out spinning and dancing up a storm! #dancelife #dancer #dancemoms #dancecoach #dancingwithbaby #pregnantlife #pregfit #pregnancy #salsa #mambo #spinning #spincitydance #gwepaaa #melbourne #mummytobe #pregnancyfitness #lululemon #fitmum #latindance #weloveit Sharny & Julius - I'll keep spinning as long as Sharny keeps running! Deal? :)lululemon athletica Australia and New Zealand - the ladies at Highpoint were so helpful picking these high waisted wunder unders for me for my pregnancy, and they've taken me almost all the way to the end of it! So in love, thanks!
