Smiling Mind and beyondblue have teamed up to create a Mindfulness Meditation tool to help individuals and couples mentally and emotionally prepare for having a baby and becoming a new parent.
What is Mindfulness:
Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment. Mindfulness gives you the choice to see more clearly and deal more skillfully with the pressures of being a new or expecting parent.
This program is for mothers, fathers, single parents and same sex couples.
The Science of Mindfulness:
Written by psychologists and psychiatrists, this program is based on extensive international literature surrounding the benefits of Mindfulness Meditation to reduce stress, manage change and build connection.
Mind the Bump provides tailored exercises to mentally and emotionally support you from day one of pregnancy through to 24 months after birth.
Minor update and bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Such a valuable tool
I used this app from about halfway through my pregnancy and still use it now 18months post partum. It helped me get to sleep when I was super uncomfortable, it helped my quite my mind when it was racing with all of the what if’s and what’s that’s that pregnancy can bring and most importantly it helped me refocus my energy in the birth suite when things started getting a bit tricky. Cannot recommend this app highly enough to pregnant women, new mums & dads or just busy people! Thank-you so much for making it!!
Wonderful app for pregnant and new mothers
I loved using this app for mindfulness meditation sessions during my pregnancy. The sessions are short enough to make sure you can actually fit them in before work or before bed. Now with my baby here, I have to try harder to keep doing them, but whenever I do it is worthwhile! The Australian accents are nice. I have kept coming back to repeat a few sessions that I found particularly helpful and relevant to me. I've recommended it to many other mums.
Can't recommend this highly enough
Thank you so much beyond blue. Such a great choice using Carrie Bickmore for most of the meditations, she has a beautiful calming voice. I first downloaded this app because I found it difficult to relax and get back to sleep after getting up to my baby during the night. It helped so much and to be honest I often still use it to help me go to sleep at night (I know that's not the intention, but whatever works hey?!) thanks again
