Mindfulness in Pregnancy

Studies have shown that practicing mindfulness during pregnancy can help to…

Reduce the fear of labour, Decrease the use of pain relief. Lower the risk of prenatal & post-natal depression and promote a strong bond with baby. 

Being able to relax rather than tense up during a contraction helps your body manage labour better. Many antenatal classes cover relaxation and breathing techniques and it’s good to find out about these, whatever you decide to do when you go into labour.

Mindfulness is low cost, low-risk, and easy to learn. 

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is defined as paying attention to the present moment and being aware of any thoughts, feelings and sensations that arise without judging them or trying to change them. This type of moment-to-moment awareness can counteract our tendency to live life on autopilot. Becoming more aware of the present moment can help us enjoy the world around us more, help understand ourselves better and help our brains to think about things differently.
