Invaluable help for your pregnancy, for calmer and more focused labour, and a easier and more natural approach to a wonderful journey like motherhood!

I found this book very helpful, with clear and detailed instructions.

It's definitely a must have for any pregnant woman who wants to explore the variety of breathing tecniques, sounds and awarness.... It helps in many ways, from the typical pregnancy anxiety and insomnia, stress to a better birth and motherhood.

I also like the fact that there are detailed information about pelvic floor exercises combined with the breathing...usually most of the pregnancy books tend to explain this topic with very little information and words...

Recommended!!

Uma Dinsmore-Tuli is an institution in the world of yoga for female well being. She wrote numerous books but this is by far my favourite one on pranayama (yogic breathing). Author's intention - I reckon- was to create a clear, readable, step-by-step guideline on various breathing techniques for mothers and mothers to be, alongside a very good chapter dedicated especially to yoga teachers and health practicioners, who may find these techinques helpful for their clients. The goal has been reached and exceeded - the result is, a great text on breathing and relaxation, that can be used not only be mothers or yoga practicioners but pretty much everyone who wants to introduce a new positive quality into their life: stress-free, deep, potent breathing.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I was attending pregnancy yoga classes with a teacher who had trained with the author. I also attended a birth rehearsal with Sitaram Yoga, the author's yoga studio. I wanted to be able to continue the breathing exercises at home. I also bought her paperback pregnancy yoga book which has a great CD guiding you through the breathing/relaxation practices.

The pregnancy breathing in the book is excellent for calm and deep relaxation in pregnancy and I found it very good during the period when I went long overdue my birth date. If I had only wanted to use the breaths in pregnancy I would have given the book 4 stars (not 5 because I think the CD should be included).

I practiced the breaths recommended for labour every day from around week 35/36 of my pregnancy, hoping to use them in labour. I had my (big!) baby using the birthing pool for pain relief and gas and air in the later stages. However, I didn't really use the breaths in the book in labour. In particular I had always practiced the full yogic breath includng abdominal breathing. I tried to do this full yogic breath in the early stages of labour and it actually made the pain worse because I was trying to breath deeply too close to where the contractions were happening! I personally found the contractions too painful to achieve the level of focus required to do golden thread breathing.
