RECOMMENDATIONS

“Expectful helped me feel confident and connected to my babies in the most amazing way.” -Amy G.
“Expectful has been a lifesaver for me.” -Sophia J.
“I want to share my secret to my amazing birth and postpartum time. I’ve been using a meditation platform called Expectful. While I was pregnant I would spend 10-20 minutes everyday meditating I found a whole new side to myself. I was happier and enjoying life more. I learned how to be fully in the moment. My birth was only 5 hours and I think it’s because I was fully present the whole time. I wasn’t thinking about the next contraction. I was just focusing on the current contraction then I was able to fully enjoy the breaks my body would give me. Now, being postpartum I have struggled with some postpartum anxiety. When I meditate it brings me back to the present moment and when you live in the present, anxiety cannot exist. Meditation is the best gift you can give yourself.” - Tayler G.
“I tried to conceive for 4-years and decided to try Expectful to see if it would help. I meditated every day, and it provided me with the time I needed to connect with myself. Four months later, I got pregnant, and their meditations are still the most important part of my day.”
- Diana C.

BENEFITS OF MEDITATION
Reduced Stress & Anxiety: Practicing regular meditation and mindfulness during pregnancy can significantly reduce stress and anxiety levels.
Improved Child Outcome: Mindfulness training during pregnancy has been associated with more optimal infant outcomes, including fewer problems with self-regulation and negative affectivity. It has also been related to better sound processing among babies.
Enhanced Fertility: When practiced regularly, meditation has the potential to promote fertility by stimulating the release of pregnancy hormones from your brain and ovaries, which can be inhibited by stress. By regularly engaging in mindfulness practices, you can better prepare your body for conception.
Healthy Pregnancy: A study that explored preterm birth found that women that participated in a mindfulness training program were 50% less likely to give birth early than women with no mindfulness education.
Enhanced Immunity: Meditation enhances the body’s immune function.
Reduced Risk of Postpartum Depression: At least 1 in 10 women experience postpartum depression, although the prevalence may actually be much higher. Mindfulness practices have been associated with reduced depression during and following pregnancy.

Love this app!!

kirmo

I’ve been struggling to get pregnant for 15 months now. I had one miscarriage and am now on to fertility treatments. This app has helped me tremendously, especially during the more stressful times of TTC. They have a whole section of fertility meditations for women who are TTC (probably 20 or so). I can relate in some way to each one of them and I choose the one that best fits my needs/struggles that day, whether it be trusting my journey, connecting with gratitude, or just preparing for sleep. The woman’s voice is very soothing, and you can choose between 10 and 20 minute meditations. I try to listen to one every night before bed, which is when I find I feel most anxious. It always helps me calm my mind and prepare for a great nights sleep. I want to thank you so much for this unique service! I love it and highly recommend it!!

Great app and great people!

During my pregnancy, my anxiety really kicked into gear. Combining that with a lack of sleep, I was not a very happy camper. I started trying to meditate and struggled through it.... until I found Expectful! The guided meditations are so calming and relaxing and it really takes the pressure off when you’re just learning! I feel less anxious and am sleeping better and there’s even a walking meditation for when I can’t quite sit still! Also, the people working behind the scenes are amazing. I had to email in and got a personal response within a few minutes. They went above and beyond to help me and really made me feel like they care about the people using the app and not just the app itself. I absolutely recommend Expectful!

Great meditations, bad technical experience with app

gingerobyn

I tried to download this app and it appears to be on my phone (iPhone 6) but when I open it it closes automatically. I started a free trial that expires in a day or two and I don't want to be charged for an app I can't use so I went to the website. I was able to test two meditations by logging in there. They were great meditations however I'd rather be able to use the downloaded app. I have tried to navigate the site to find out how to cancel my trial so I don't get charged for a subscription and I can't find anything that helps, I can't even find a link to a 'contact' form or frequently asked questions. If the app worked for me I'd have kept it and likely paid for it. Instead I'm just feeling anxious and still trying to figure out how to cancel it in time.
