If your fingers don’t separate is because you are taking all the air on
your “chest/lungs” instead of your diaphragm.. Is like trying to inflate
your belly instead of thinking of breathing .. I know this as I learned
this when I took vocal lessons .
So try to inflate your belly :) good luck

Love this video!!! I live in a very small town and they only offer labor
and breastfeeding coaching classes 3 months out of the year, and the next
one doesn’t start until after my due date (go figure, my luck). So this has
been extremely helpful!!!
Thank you so much for making this so simple!!!

lol, @2:43- she was patting her stomach and making drawing circles on her
head when she was saying “it’s very difficult like patting your head and
drawing circles on your stomach.” Just shows how annoying that little
riddle is!
