I am very excited to offer to the Sacramento Valley area The Mindfulness-Based Childbirth & Parenting course as developed by Nancy Bardacke, CNM. This course offers an opportunity to explore the practice of mindfulness and how it applies to the profound changes that occur during pregnancy, childbirth and parenting.
Mindfulness provides a gateway to fully experience your life and relationships and the potential to provide deep relaxation during the childbirth experience. Most importantly, the practice of mindfulness can help one accept, whole-heartedly, whatever birth experience occurs.
Through mindfulness meditation, yoga and group sharing, you will develop skills to use during the laboring process and the role of parenting that lies ahead. Not only will you gain an understanding of how mindfulness can enrich all aspects of your life you will have an opportunity to meet new friends and build a support system which can be so critical in the first few weeks and months postpartum.
Please see the classes and events section for more information about the class.
