The 30 exercises include: mindful breathing, visualisations, journaling prompts, sensory awareness practices and lots of simple, easy-to-master tools to help you relax and connect with your baby while you are pregnant — and to help you prepare for the birth.

A practical and interesting look at ways to transform your emotional experience and wellbeing during pregnancy and birth. There are lots of useful exercises including breathing, visualisations, sensory awareness and journaling. I like how there are different exercises for each trimester and for after birth, meaning you can keep going back to the book at different stages of your pregnancy. A brilliant book to either read in one go or refer to continuously during your journey. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy of the book in return for my honest feedback.
