  • The Benefits of a Mindful Pregnancy

    13 June at 09:33 from atlas

    Mindfulness is awareness that arises when paying attention in the present moment - it has been shown to aid depression, anxiety and manage chronic pain.  Mindfulness is an importnant tool in labour - it can help a birthing mother to remain calm and in the moment for each contraction, reducing fear of the unkown course of her labour.  A recent article published in the New York Times said;

    "Many expectant mothers worry about the physical pain that accompanies labor and childbirth. New research suggests that including mindfulness skills in childbirth education can help first-time mothers cope with their fears.

    The study, published in the journal BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth, also indicates that mindfulness may help decrease women's symptoms of prenatal and postpartum depression.

    Bring it on Baby birth workshops teach mindfulness through breath work and holding poses that cause strong sensations - teaching you to stay mindful and centred on your breath as you feel and become comfortable with sensation in your body.
