Mindfulness Based Childbirth and Parenting

MBCP-short-course
The Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting Program (MBCP) is an adaptation of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

In this shortened version of the MBCP program, expectant parents practice mindfulness meditation, yoga and mindfulness in daily life. As we actively cultivate mindfulness together we may find that we are able to more fully live the joys and more gracefully navigate the inevitable challenges of this life transforming time while building a foundation and a lifelong resource for healthy living and wise parenting.
In this class we will:

• Access deep physical and mental relaxation
• Learn to engage the mind to work with pain during labor
• Increase confidence and courage for the experience of labor and delivery
• Practice prenatal yoga for strength and flexibility
• Develop skills for managing stress in pregnancy, parenting and daily life
• Enhance partner communication skills
• Become more aware of our own approach to parenting

Cost for 4 weeks: €100 per person (partners are very welcome)
