No time for lamaze classes...due in 8 weeks

User - posted on 03/13/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




Hi...I only have 8 weeks left to go and I have been working at the same job for 10 years. I am the only woman in my job here. I sell cars so I get to sit some of the time. I do not have time to go to lamaze classes and I never went with my first child but I landed up having a emergency C section. Does anyone have any online sites that may help me with breathing?

The best breathing trick I ever used was called "relax" so how it works is you inhale through your nose while thinking 're' and you exhale through your mouth while thinking 'lax'. I still use it now in stressful situations also found using the hot water was a great help good luck with it all!!!

Establish a baseline by measuring your normal breathing pattern for 1 minute. Next, slowly exhale through your nose to a count of five, then slowly inhale through your nose to a count of five. Continue to do the blowing exercise: inhale through your nose and exhale, forcing the air out as you exhale.

Perform the classic "he he hoo" breathing technique associated with Lamaze by exhaling with two short breaths, making the "he" sound, followed by longer exhaling motion, making the "hoo" sound. After the "he he hoo" exercise, take a deep breath through your nose and exhale slowly through your mouth. This exercise performs a cleansing function.
