This double CD offers you a comprehensive package which supports you in the amazing, life-changing transition to parenthood.
Covering pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period, these five tracks can give you skills, confidence and special 'time out' just for YOU (something parents too often neglect to give to themselves).
Created by Lina Clerke, an experienced Childbirth Educator, midwife and mother. You can now enjoy the benefits of Lina's 25 years experience in teaching positive birth preparation and pre-natal relaxation, all in the comfort of your own home.
Set to a background of beautiful music, Lina's soothing voice creates a feeling of peace and tranquility while you learn valuable skills for a joyful birth experience and positive parenting (four different tracks).
The fifth track is the music on its own, without voice-over. After using the guided relaxations in pregnancy, this calming music will have strong associations with deep states of relaxation, making it ideal for use during labour, breastfeeding, night time parenting and general relaxation. The new baby will also be soothed as she recognises the music.
Pregnancy is a time when both mother and unborn baby benefit from and need love and support in order to prepare for life after birth. It is also invaluable to practice relaxing and letting go in preparation for birth. These CDs are especially created so they can be used by mother on her own, or with a partner. Tracks 4 and 5 can even be used by family and friends - even your children. Everyone needs to relax!
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN ENJOY AND EXPERIENCE PERFECT RELAXATION FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY.
Here is a treasure that you can use for many years to come. A real gem!

What Parents Have Said
HOW TO PURCHASE:
From Tania, a new mother:
I would just like to tell everyone how totally fantastic and thoroughly useful I have found Linas CDs to be.
The prenatal relaxation helped me immensely throughout my pregnancy, particularly in my second trimester when I was diagnosed with mild anxiety attacks and became very easily stressed over what would seem to be quite minor issues.
By listening to Linas CDs every night, I was able to sleep better and focus more clearly at work and above all remain positively focused.
The baby meditation was a beautiful time in which my partner and I could relax and share and send our love to our baby. It was a special way my partner could feel connected with the baby and feel more involved in the pregnancy.
With Linas voice in my head and the breath work I had practiced every day, I was able to breathe my way through my labour with no nasty drugs.
I was so totally focused on my breath. By using voice release and opening, releasing, letting go and then relaxing in between contractions I was able to cope well with my contractions and help conserve my precious energy during my very long and tiring labour.
As Lina says it really is your anchor in the stormy seas of labour.
I always say to people that Linas breath work really did get me through my labour and certainly helped me achieve the beautiful natural birth we so wanted and had worked towards.
I cannot recommend these tapes enough to my expectant friends.
The postnatal relaxation tape has also been very useful in helping me deal with what I found at times to be a very stressful transition into parenthood.
It gave me precious time to relax and nurture myself whilst having time out from baby and I found it benefited my overall physical and emotional health at the same time.
Recently when I supported a close friend in labour Linas words came rushing back into my head, lovely loose lips, relax and release with each breath, big breath for baby".
I took every breath with my dear friend during her second stage and thanks to Lina I felt equipped to help and support her in the best possible way. I was even privileged enough to be able to hand her newborn son to his mothers breast straight after his birth.
Again thank you Lina, not only for your amazing workshop in which we learnt everything my husband and I needed to know to prepare for our daughters birth but for your fantastic set of CDs which enabled me to keep practicing and preparing regularly at home with your voice to guide me.
