Relax And Breathe For Pregnancy, Birth & Baby

This online Relax & Breathe course is about simple and effective techniques for pregnancy, birth and when your baby is here.

Through practice you will have skills to deal with pain & discomfort or feelings of anxiety, stress or panic. By bringing this into your day, just for a few minutes, you can make some time for you and boost your general wellbeing.

There isn’t anything complicated about developing your relax and breathe skills. It’s just about slowing your breathing, letting it be your focus and letting go of tension. But practice is crucial, so you can become familiar with relaxing your breathing and your body and to find what works for you.

Knowing how to use your breathing, means you have robust skills to help you…

  • relax & de-stress
  • head off any panic
  • work with your contractions
  • manage your energy in labour
  • manage any aches and discomfort
  • be calm if you feel overwhelmed
  • stay calm if your birth plan changes

This is a simple introduction to using online Relax & Breathe

*Sit comfortably, where you won’t be disturbed and give yourself a few minutes to focus on your breathing.
*The key to learning Relax & Breathe is to make time for it, to practise it and to develop it so it works for you.

And you can use this if you are feeling stressed, anxious and overwhelmed.

The Online Relax & Breathe Course is made up of three guides:
1. for your pregnancy and birth preparation
2. to use during your labour and birth
3. for when your baby is here

You can use all three guides to gain knowledge, to make notes and write your strategies for labour and birth. You can also download the information and audio files to use during your pregnancy, throughout labour and during those early days and weeks with your new baby.

Relax & Breathe provides an opportunity for birth partners to know how to stay calm and to provide effective support.

I have been working with parents since 2002.

I developed Relax & Breathe in 2009 because I know how vital breathing skills can be to stay focused, to manage pain, to boost energy and to help with any anxiety or panic.
