More Pregnancy Questions – Deep Breathing

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 21-11-2006

I heard deep breathing could help her de-stress. How do I help my partner do it?



Deep breathing is a good way to relax. Try it a couple of times every day.
Here’s how you can teach her to do it:



  1. Get her to lie down or sit in a chair

  2. Make her rest her hands on her stomach

  3. Let her slowly count to four and then inhale through her nose. Feel her stomach rise. Hold it for a second

  4. Slowly count to four while she exhales through her mouth. To control how fast she exhales, tell her to purse her lips like she’s going to whistle. Her stomach will slowly fall

  5. Repeat five to 10 times.
