Relax Fully Often

In my HypnoBirthing classes for moms and dads I am often asked to provide a recording of a relaxation with my voice leading the relaxation. I also know many relaxation cds that are worth investing and listening to. Make your choices with this short introduction.

The importance of relaxation for pregnant women has been emphasized many times over many lectures.

Increasing the flow of oxygen to your baby, increasing the flow of oxygen to your own brain, improving your blood supply quality, improving the functioning of your entire body, strengthening your immune system are just a few of the benefits of the consistant daily relaxation.

Research shows that the brain of the person who relaxes daily in meditation with mindful focus on quieting her mind the pre-frontal insula is thickened.
