This guide will relax you deeply, so please use precautions. Do not listen when driving or operating machinery, or during a time when you cannot safely relax.
This relaxation guide will guide you through releasing the tension within your body. Practice this as often as you can, so that it comes naturally to you when you are in labor. You can use this MP3 each time, you can ask you partner to read it to you, or you can learn to release the tension completely on your own.
Another option, is to ask you partner to join you for this relaxation. As I mention each body part, have your partner touch or massage that part of you. Over time, you will learn to relax with just his or her touch. It’s okay if this makes you giggle at first, that’s totally normal. You’ll get more comfortable with time.
