With small groups, this is an exclusive way to gain professional birth preparation, simple & effective birth breathing skills and to access ongoing support.

This is a specialised session to focus on relaxation and breathing skills, combined with positions for labour & birth to enable you to stay calm and comfortable, to manage any panic, to work with your contractions and to manage inductions and epidurals.

Booking onto this session also includes:

  • The Labour & Birth Handbooks
  • 10% discount on a baby massage course
  • Relaxation music and ongoing email support after the session

This session is based on first-hand experience, up-to-date research and proven relaxation & breathing skills – it has been designed to prepare you well for the -reality of labour & birth.

 The benefits of relax & breathe include being able to…

  • Breathe through your contractions to stay calm and focused
  • Handle stress, anxiety or panic
  • Make decisions in labour if you need to
  • Stay calm during an induction or a caesarean
  • Adjust to changes to your birth-plan
  • Keep going if labour becomes tough
  • Be able to relax and rest in-between contractions
  • 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.
