Day 15 - Breathing Techniques

Happy Friday everyone! - Day 15 - Breathing Techniques

Just 10 days counting down!

Are your little ones getting more and more excited for Christmas day?

Three magic breaths - and yes - they can really be magic!

I absolutly love these breathing techniques - especially because they were a life-line during all of my labours!

There are three different stages during your labour and each breathing technique is adapted to help you centre yourself and fuel your body with as much oxygen as it needs.

Labour is hard work - hence the word labour! And as your uterus contracts, it uses up a lot of energy.

Fueling that muscle with what it needs most during labour will help those muscle fibres to rise with more ease, help to reduce the build up of lactic acid - And it will also help you to feel calmer and more centred, more focused on your baby and contraction.

Magic right there!

Now moving on to another wonderful Christmas tradition I found:

This one takes us to Ukrain, Poland and parts of Germany.

"One of Ukraine's favourite festive traditions is not one for those with a fear of creepy crawlies! Where we would have baubles, tinsel and stars, Ukrainians use decorations that mimic the natural formation of spiders' webs shimmering with dew.

The tradition goes back to a folktale about a poor widow who could not afford to decorate a tree for her children. Legend has it that spiders in the house took pity on the family, and spun beautiful webs all over the tree, which the children awoke to find on Christmas morning. Spiders' webs are also considered to be lucky in Ukrainian culture."

Excerpt taken frrom: Holiday Extras, 'Unusual Christmas traditions from around the world'

I might not always love a spider surprise me, BUT - I do love to see the webs early in the morning when the due makes them look so magical!  

I must say I absolutly love learning about all these wonderful traditions! There is beauty

all around!
