Relax, Breathe and Birth

The ‘Relax, Breathe and Birth’ session is a 2 hour class designed to provide relaxation tools for birth. It is run online via Zoom, so that you can access it from the comfort of your home; or as a group session in Hope.

The session has been written as an introduction to the full Wise Hippo Birthing Programme, but if you only feel able to commit to this shorter session for whatever reason, it will provide some very useful breathing techniques, to help keep you calm and relaxed during your labour.

During this class you will learn why it is so important to focus positively on birth and how practising two simple breathing techniques can support your body in working at its most effective during labour.
