Many studies have proven that a daily meditation practice during pregnancy has many beneficial effects for the pregnant mother and her developing baby.
Meditation during pregnancy has been proven to:
Improve birth weight
Reduce premature births
Lessen overall medical complications for newborns
Everything a pregnant mother eats, drinks and thinks affects her unborn child in some way. Long-term, ongoing stress during pregnancy may affect the emotional and mental wellbeing of the mother, and affect the health of her baby both before and after birth.
A balanced and calm mental and emotional state is important to maintain during pregnancy. Meditation and mindfulness help to reduce the stress levels an expectant mum may be experiencing.
