Relaxation and Visualisation
Baby Bond Relaxation
This is a lovely guided relaxation (yoga nidra) for any stage of pregnancy. It is written and recorded by Lucy’s teacher Uma.
Birth Rehearsal Visualisation
Perfect from 32 weeks when planning a vaginal birth – a reassuring birth rehearsal written by Dr Gowri Motha and recorded by Lucy. Can be listened to while having a rest or as you drift off to sleep.
