reality of labour & birth.
The benefits of relax & breathe include being able to…

- Feel better prepared for labour and birth
I developed Relax & Breathe in 2009 and I have held sessions with expectant parents almost monthly since then. I love this session because I know how vital breathing skills can be to clear my head, to stay focused, to manage pain, to boost energy and to help with any anxiety or panic. I don’t teach an artificial way to breathe, my method is all about focusing on knowing how to use your breathing for labour and birth, to relax your body and to slow your breathing. It is important to me to be able to support expectant parents in the best way possible so I don’t teach large groups, as such
spaces are limited.
