Let’s Learn How to Do It!

The goal of this breathing technique for labor is to bring you through your surges (contractions) as calmly and relaxed as possible. With that in mind, you’ll begin your Destressor Breath as you start to feel your contraction build and continue using it through the entire duration of the surge.
Start by breathing calm deep breaths through your nose for four seconds. As deeply as you are capable of breathing, this breath should enter your body. Additionally, as air fills your tummy, it will grow larger. Your baby and muscles take in each breath that is brimming with calm and relaxation.
Just a brief pause should occur at the peak of your inhalation. Next, exhale through your mouth for a total of six seconds while doing so slowly. You are releasing any stress from your body when you exhale. Every muscle in your body is therefore calm, with the exception of your uterus, which is actively working to bring your baby down and out.
Throughout the entire surge, keep employing this breathing method for labor. For four seconds, breathe in deeply with your nose, and for six seconds, slowly and deliberately, expel through your mouth. Five breaths at a time, repeat this pattern. If you’re breathing properly, you should be able to get through a contraction—or at the very least, the peak of the pain—in around five breaths. Through the surge, continue with the Destressor Breath until you are  do not need it. 
Take a deep breath in through your nose for as long as it feels comfortable after the surge has passed, followed by a deliberate, wholly relaxed exhalation through your mouth. With this purifying breath, you might make a faint vocalization as you exhale your tension and welcome complete rest.
