So much goes on in the minds, bodies, and lives of expecting parents as they reflect on their past and who they are, connect with their values in their new roles, and decide how they want to show up for life as parents. Expecting parents face rapid change in all aspects of life. They anticipate new normals both excitedly and wistfully as they think about letting go of some aspects of their lives. They look forward to their new roles, as well as wonder and worry about their capabilities as parents. Mindfulness allows you to move forward with clarity and confidence.
Mindfulness-based pregnancy, birth, and parenting preparation acknowledges and honors the full range of feelings, emotions, wants, and needs of the expecting family. It prepares pregnant women and partners for the experiences they and their families have during pregnancy, birth, and parenting with a greater sense of joy, love, comfort, acceptance, and ease. I addition to developing a foundation in mindfulness, mothers and partners learn techniques to alleviate pain, facilitate labor progress, and have a satisfying birth experience. Mindfulness skills are life and relationship skills that enrich your life and create balance. .
