Pregnancy is one of the most exciting times of your life. However, it can also be quite stressful, as your body and mind are going through tremendous changes. Your mind is racing with questions, worries, doubts and excitement.
Questions such as: “Will I be a good mum?” “Will my baby be healthy and happy?” and “Will I be able to handle the pain of labour?” run through your mind.
However, there is a way to stay calm and centred, and keep your growing baby healthy during this time of rapid change: pregnancy meditation.
Why is prenatal meditation important?
It has been scientifically proven that your baby is the biology of your thoughts. By remaining calm and peaceful during your pregnancy, you ensure the optimal physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development of your baby in utero.
How will pregnancy meditation benefit you and your baby?
Prenatal meditation has countless benefits for yourself and your baby. These include:
- Reducing pregnancy stress
While some stress is normal during pregnancy, extended periods of stress will have a negative impact on your unborn baby. By taking part in regular prenatal meditation sessions, you will significantly reduce stress, and reduce the likelihood of long-term effects on your child (such as developmental problems).
- Reduce depression
Depression affects up to one in five women during pregnancy. By undertaking regular prenatal meditation, you will reduce the risk of depression, and boost feelings of connectedness you have with your baby.
- Promote healthy eating choices
Whether it’s junk food, caffeine or anything in between, it can be hard to resist poor lifestyle choices, especially when you’re pregnant. Prenatal and birth meditation will help you to focus on positive choices, and avoid things which may harm your baby.
