Hypnobirthing/breathing - how to do it with a cough

I've had a cough for about two weeks and can't seem to shift it. I've been listening to a hypnobirthing cd but I'm finding that I can't do the breathing as I just end up coughing even more sad

Does anyone have any advice?

Are you using a HypnBirthing CD? That would just require relaxed calm breath.

Yes I'm using a CD. I keep finding that as I breath in and think about 'relaxing down through my body' that it just sets me off coughing. Having said that I think the cough is improving at last so I'm hopeful it'll be gone in a few days

I found when I had a cough having an extra pillow in bed stops me coughing quite so much.

Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks GN . I've got about 6 pillows! Spent half the night sitting up last night. Only managed about and 1 1/2 sleep but have caught up a bit this morning
