Mindfulness for Mums

“Mindfulness decreases depression and anxiety during pregnancy and boosts positive emotions”.

This was reported in Mindful and highlighted the need for rest and relaxation for mums-to-be. The article also featured the importance of sleep, although during pregnancy (and for a while afterwards) this may seem like a challenge.  There is also evidence which highlights that one in three women can experience poor maternal mental health.   This is where Mindfulness can help.

Mindfulness is a technique which gives you permission to rest and relax your mind. (There is a free factsheet and more information here). It has been proven to improve sleep, reduce stress and provide increased resilience – i.e. Our capacity to cope.  Whether you’re a new mum or a mum-to-be, Mindfulness is a wonderful way to carve “you-time” into your busy life, and boost your sense of wellbeing.
