Relax And Breathe For Birth

breathe for birth

simple | straight-forward | effective

With Relax & Breathe For Birth you can focus on using effective skills, combined with positions, during pregnancy, labour and birth.

Based on experience, research and proven techniques, you can relax during pregnancy and then rely on robust strategies during labour and birth.

These are also simple skills to use every day – for aches and pains as well as to manage any stress or anxiety and they can boost your wellbeing during pregnancy and when your baby is here.

Knowing how to use your breathing, means you can…

  • relax & de-stress
  • head off any panic
  • work with your contractions
  • manage your energy in labour
  • be more comfortable
  • be calm if you feel overwhelmed
  • encourage your contractions to work effectively
  • stay calm if your birth plan changes

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


“I found the breathing really helpful in labour. I trusted my body and focusing on my breathing kept me calm, focused and in control.”

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 stay focused, to manage pain, to boost energy and to help with any anxiety or panic.
