Here is a short Relax & Breathe exercise… It is really easy for tension to creep into your body when you are busy, rushing around or feeling stressed and under pressure. We often don’t know it is there and I find that when I do my relax & breathe sessions, so many expectant parents say they didn’t even realise they were tense.
