Relax & Breathe for Birth



With Janine Rudin – an experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting

I developed Relax & Breathe in 2009 and I have held sessions with expectant parents every month since then. I love this session because I know how vital breathing skills can be to stay focused, to manage pain, to boost energy and to help with any anxiety or panic. This is a relaxing and practical session to help you focus on using your breathing and to give you something to practise as you prepare for the birth of your baby.

Simple but brilliant breathing skills so you can…

Breathe through your contractions to stay calm

Handle any 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 birthplan

Keep going if labour becomes tough

Be able to relax and rest in-between contractions

Feel better prepared for labour and birth 

An affordable and effective alternative to hypnotherapy for birth, it includes birth booklets, relaxation music and ongoing support if you need it

£25 | Sundays | 6.30-8pm

Held at the Birth & Baby Family Centre – for info, support, tea and cake

Client Feedback

“I attended the Relax and Breath sessions while I was pregnant and they were extremely helpful to help me prepare for labour. I am a health professional myself so I appreciate the importance of finding a specialist who has the expert knowledge required.”

“For me, Relax and Breathe was an opportunity to take time out from family life, the demands of a toddler, and the frantic rush of balancing working and other children – from modern life really! With subsequent pregnancies, it’s sometimes hard to remember that there will be a baby at the end of it. Relax and Breathe gave me the opportunity to focus on me and my new baby: to think about labour and birth and to connect with the new life growing inside me. It was a precious hour a week that was all about me and my baby.”

“It definitely gave me some valuable time to relax which is hard when you’ve already got a lively toddler at home! I found it helped to refocus my mind on the breathing techniques that make labour easier. This time round I was able to manage with only a tiny bit of gas and air at the very end! I had a water birth and it was all much more relaxed. Your classes really helped to remind me about breathing properly and just trying to go with the flow. I also met some great new friends!”
