Mindfulness for Pregnancy is a wonderful tool for any pregnant woman and her partner who want to begin or deepen the practice of mindfulness for meeting the profound changes of body and mind during pregnancy and for the life-changing experience of childbirth ahead. Through the practice of mindfulness meditation, you can learn a way to more fully live the moments of joy and manage the inevitable stresses of this transformative time as well as cultivate lifelong skills for healthy living and wise parenting. Mindfulness for Pregnancy can help you with one of the most difficult aspect of mindfulness practice – namely, to remember to be mindful.
BRIEF ABOUT THE APP
Mindfulness for Pregnancy helps you begin or deepen a mindfulness practice during pregnancy by offering guided meditations as well as suggestions for bringing mindfulness into your everyday life.
A Guided Sitting Meditation gives instructions for using the breath as a focus of awareness for your meditation practice.
The Body Scan takes you on a journey of awareness through your body in which the various body sensations are the focus of attention.
Mindful Yoga includes a sequence of simple body stretches that can bring more ease to your pregnant body. They can be done anytime you can take a few minutes to practice.
Walking Meditation gives instructions for formal walking meditation as well as suggestions for how to use walking practice informally in daily life.
Guided Lovingkindness Meditation is a mind-body-heart practice for cultivating kindness, friendliness and well-wishing for your baby, yourself and others.
Being with Baby Meditation gives simple instructions for being with the sensations you experience when the baby moves during your day (and sometime night!), and how those movements can be a reminder to come back to the present moment.
Silent Meditations include several pre-set silent meditations of varying length with bells. The bells begin your practice, help you keep focused during your practice and ring when your practice time is over.
Personalized Meditations let you design your own meditations, including the length of time for practice, a guided beginning to your practice or bells at various intevals during your meditation.
Mindfulness Notices provide gentle reminders throughout your day to help you connect with your baby and become more present in your daily life.
You can also use the Mindful Pregnancy App at any time in your daily life, for example while waiting for a bus or riding on the subway.
We hope that you and your parther find the Mindful Pregnancy App helpful as you prepare for birth of your baby and for the remarkable life-long adventure of parenting that lies ahead!

Updated sharing function and minor improvements.
Great app for home practice
I got this app because I'm a doula and wanted to try it out. It has a wonderful variety of meditation practices. There are short practices, longer ones, guided and silent. You can even customize the length of your silent meditation. You can continue to use it after you have your baby too. I use it all the time and I'm not pregnant!
Great app, made with care
I took Nancy's Mind in Labor weekend class and use this app to help me remember and practice what she taught us in class.
The guided meditations are useful to learn and remember what she taught us, but I also really appreciate the option to do silent practice with bells.
Thoroughly recommended to those with babies on the way.
Very happy with these! I start out feeling silly in the meditations, but by the end am immersed and feel something's gained. Grateful I found this!
