Having a baby is a time of celebration but it can also be a time of adjustment, with an enormous learning curve. New parents can also experience exhaustion and discomfort, as well as anxiety and feelings of being overwhelmed.
Using your breathing is a simple and effective way of feeling calmer and more comfortable and an easier way of settling your baby.
The key to using Relax & Breathe is to keep it simple:
- slow your breathing
- relax your muscles – your jaw, your shoulders, your hands, your pelvic floor and your legs and feet
- allow yourself to de-stress and slow down
These small steps can mean you and your baby are calmer.
