Is belly breathing ever appropriate?

IS BELLY BREATHING EVER APPROPRIATE?

Belly breathing is oftentimes used in association with relaxation, because it helps the diaphragm relax

When babies breathe themselves, they do so using a belly breath, but this is when they’re lying down on their back.

When dealing with the postnatal client, whose breathing mechanics are already non-optimal attributing to their diastasis and built-up intra-abdominal pressure, belly breathing is not recommended, unless supine when the spine does not need support from the transversalis muscles at the front.
