All tracks can be listened to throughout your first year. When you listen to them you may feel as though you are falling asleep; this is fine, go with it. Listening to the tracks will relax you and build your belief in your capability to support your baby and yourself. The more you listen to them, the easier you will find it to let go and fully relax.
