Are you experiencing increased levels of stress and anxiety during your pregnancy?
Are you looking for ways to cope with the fear and pain that often accompanies childbirth?

Mind in Labor Online (MIL Online) is an intensive online course designed for expectant parents who are curious how practicing mindfulness meditation can make a difference in their labor and delivery experiences.
 
This course trains participants in mindfulness skills in addition to covering childbirth education basics. All content is delivered live and participants will have the opportunity to interact with the instructors and other expectant parents. Additionally, participants will engage in guided meditation practices and receive materials to continue at home after the course. 
 
Participants will:

  • Practice mindfulness for working with pain and fear during labor

  • Understand the mind/body connection in childbirth for maintaining the optimal physiology for childbirth

  • Learn how to be fully present to give comfort and support as a birth partner

This course is a good fit for first-time parents OR those with previous birth experience who need a refresher or want to approach their births in a different way.
 
This course is rooted in evidence-based research. Published research on the benefits of taking a Mind in Labor course during pregnancy show lower rates of maternal depression during pregnancy, immediately following childbirth, and postpartum.
