Presented in Collaboration with ZaZen and the Steiner Therapy Group
In this workshop you will learn how to use mindfulness practices to overcome typical pregnancy discomfort. We will demonstrate how mindfulness tools can assist you in dealing with anxious thoughts and feelings regarding your baby and birth experience. Gain understanding about the fear-pain cycle and develop mindful pain reduction strategies. Learn how to connect with your baby in a meaningful way and envision the birthing experience you truly want. Mindfulness can nurture you and your baby in utero and can even result in a shorter, less painful birth!
