Mindfulness for Childbirth | Westchester Newborn Photographer

March 11, 2020

This article asks the question "Can Mindfulness Ease Childbirth Pain?"  I'd like to answer with an affirmative 'Yes'.

Two little tidbits about me...

1) I attempted to learn hypnobirthing by CD (yes I'm dating myself) with my second pregnancy.  I never thought for a second that I would actually be able to hypnotize myself, but, the methods taught in the program was a lot of visualization and mindfulness techniques.  I 100% believe that aided me in my labor.

 

2) I recently attended a 3 day silent meditation retreat.  If you'd like to hear more about it, I'm happy to share - it was an amazing experience I highly recommend.  The 3 days was completely focused on mindfulness.  Not only the guided meditations, but every moment in between we were encouraged to be mindful - of the sensations while we walked, ate and breathed.  My practice wavers but I was at one point dedicated enough to know the benefits.  Again, I have no doubt that mindfulness would help during childbirth and labor.

 

I only glanced through the article as I don't have to be convinced, but maybe there are some good points in here for you!
