Most mums-to-be spend a lot of time worrying about their developing baby.
But remember, it’s just as important during the next nine months to tune in to someone else’s cues: your own.
Maybe you’re exceedingly tired. Or thirsty. Or hungry. Maybe you and your growing baby need some quiet time to connect.
Your doctor or midwife may say, “Listen to your body.” But for many of us, that’s followed by “how?”
Meditation can help you listen to your voice, your body, that small heartbeat — and help you feel refreshed and a bit more focused.
Why you’ll love it
Some of the benefits of practicing meditation include:
connecting to your changing body
peace of mind
positive labor preparation
lower risk of postpartum depression
Scientists have studied the benefits of meditation on pregnant women and they have shown that it can help mums-to-be throughout pregnancy and especially at birth.
Mothers who have high levels of stress or anxiety during pregnancy are more likely to deliver their babies at preterm or low birth weights.
Prenatal stress can also impact foetal development. Studies have shown that it can even affect cognitive, emotional, and physical development in infancy and childhood. All the more reason to squeeze in some meditation time!
How it works
Mothers-to-be don’t spend their entire 40 weeks of pregnancy glowing radiantly; there are also midnight worries, endless shopping lists, and swollen feet. Somewhere around 18 percent of women are depressed during pregnancy and 21 percent are struggling with heightened anxiety.
Research is starting to suggest that mindfulness could help. Not only does cultivating moment-to-moment awareness of thoughts and surroundings seem to help pregnant women keep their stress down and their spirits up - benefits that are well documented among other groups of people - it may also lead to healthier newborns with fewer developmental problems down the line.
The research is still in its infancy (pun intended), but researchers are hopeful that this low-cost, accessible, and positive practice could have transformational effects. It offers a pathway to inner tranquility, mental clarity, and heightened awareness. And by focusing the mind and reducing external distractions, meditation allows individuals to tap into a deep state of relaxation. This process not only calms the immediate chaos of our thoughts but has been shown to alter brainwave patterns, leading to enhanced well-being.

I was going through a time in my life where I was drinking daily and eating loads of junk food, it became difficult for me to go out in social situations. Clear Minds completely changed by habits and way of life.
I started smoking young, and didnt realise I was a “big” smoker. But it escalated into a habit. It started affecting my appearance and my confidence. No ‘medical’ treatments worked for me until I discovered Clear Mind’s and it completely changed my life.
I tried medication, I tried therapists but none of them worked, I found myself sliding deeper into loneliness and depression. I tried a few audio session with Clear Minds and something ‘clicked’, I started opening up to myself.
I’ve tried food packs, I’ve tried different diets, herbals slimming classes… the lot. I was unaware that my overeating was caused by stress, this is never covered in any diet programmes that I have seen before. I feel in control of my eating and in just three weeks can see the difference in my body and mind.
My Dad has had alcohol consumption issues his whole life and it crept into mine too. Seeing him overcome his difficulties by using Clear Minds inspired me to give it a try and the results are incredible, it has changed our lives!
