Relaxation for a Better Birth and Beyond


with Francesca Naish

To help you prepare for the rhythms of labour, using breath awareness and imagery – to be practiced during the last weeks of pregnancy. Also nurturing visualisations for use as you breastfeed your baby.

Warning: do not listen to the relaxation on track 2 if you are doing anything that could be dangerous if you get drowsy – for example, if you are driving, operating machinery or using sharp implements. Also make sure there is no one within earshot who is doing any of these things, as they could be affected subconsciously.
