If you have been wondering how breathing can be an effective form of pain management in labor 

Slow, deep breathing interrupts the transmission of pain signals to your brain by giving you something positive to focus on. At the same time, it  stimulates the release of endorphins, which are your bodies own natural pain relieving hormones  - 10 x more potent than morphine! 

 

Here's what you may not know

The key to using breathing for pain relief during labor is that breathing should be conscious, not automatic, so that you activate your Central Nervous System Control (CNSC).

This activates mental processes in your brain that make labor sensations seem less unpleasant.

INTRODUCING...

The Complete Course Bundle to Learn Breathing Techniques Specifically for Labor and Birth. 

WHAT YOU GET

Easy to use, step by step guide to learn the 5 essential breathing techniques (+ bonus partner tip) Immediate download. 

Video Tutorials

Step by step guidance through each of the 5 simple breathing techniques.  Each one builds on the one before so that you develop a deep breath awareness and notice how your breathing changes in response to different stimuli and at different times of the day. Each of these techniques have benefits at different stages of labor and I guide you to know when and how to use them effectively with exercises to practice during pregnancy.

 

 

Breathing App

The Breathing App allows you to set a timer for daily practice sessions. Even if you only practice for 5 minutes every day you will notice the benefits. The more you use the breathing techniques in different situations, the more you will learn about how to use them effectively during labor. You will be guided to use common pregnancy discomforts like backache, heartburn, nausea and Braxton Hicks as your practice ground. 

 

Journal 

In labor your aim is to conserve energy and keep your breathing slow and rhythmic during surges, and effortless between surges. The journal prompts and exercises will guide you to notice your natural breathing patterns and practice the different techniques in different scenarios. The bonus technique guides partners to be an active participant by pacing your breathing during surges so that you can go deeper within.  

 

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • How to practice using Belly Breathing during Braxton Hicks contractions so that you know what you are doing (and how it feels) when it's the real thing (in labor). 

    Electroencephalography (EEG) studies show that even just a few minutes of belly breathing alters your brainwaves in a positive way, increases your relaxation response, and your oxygen levels and decreases your stress hormones,  and blood pressure. 

  • How to use Deep Breathing during surges so that you can manage the intensity (pain) sensations. Deep breathing can be used to avoid medical pain relief options (if that is your preference) or to enhance the effect of pain relief options by increasing your relaxation response and decreasing stress hormone response. 

  • How to use Easy Breathing to effectively relax between surges so that you can conserve your energy and avoid exhaustion and unnecessary medical interventions. 

  • How to use the Birth Breath so that you can avoid purple pushing and protect your pelvic floor (plus avoid interventions like episiotomy and vacuum/ventouse)

5 REASONS BREATHING CORRECTLY WILL HELP YOU IN LABOR

  • AVOID THE FEAR/TENSION/PAIN CYCLE

     You will notice that as soon as you stop using the breathing technique and enter a state of tension or fear, the pain sensations will intensify accordingly. 

  • FEEL MORE IN CONTROL

    This is the difference between feeling that something is happening to you and being an active participant in the powerful journey of birthing your baby. Effective breathing used together with visualisation and hypnobirthing techniques is particularly effective.  

  • SUPPORT YOUR BABY

    Effective breathing will keep you feeling calm, centered and connected to your baby while ensuring the flow of oxytocin and endorphins to take your deeper into the "birth zone" and support your baby as he/she is being born. 

  • PREVENT PURPLE PUSHING 

    The urge to push or bear down is a natural and instinctive sensation, very similar to the feeling that you get every day when you go to the bathroom. This in itself can feel vulnerable and frightening. Learning to use the "BIRTH BREATH" during pregnancy will enable you to use your natural reflexes effectively. 

  • PREVENT EPISIOTOMY OR TEARING 

    Working with your breath to breathe your baby down and use "passive instinctive pushing" rather than valsava or purple pushing will help to prevent an unnecessary episiotomy and protect your pelvic floor.
