Mindfulness Program for New and Expecting Mothers
Motherhood is often overwhelming as you experience sleepless nights, worries about being a good parent, unhelpful advice from everyone and everywhere, adjusting to breastfeeding, dealing with going back to work and childcare and losing opportunities to take care of yourself and connections with others. You can end up feeling alone, depleted, and sometimes hopeless.
These feelings can be hard for others to understand and difficult to communicate to family and friends.
Mindful Mamas is a four-session program that teaches mindfulness techniques that can help you accept your thoughts and feelings without being overwhelmed by them. You will learn skills that will help you slow down, breathe, and be present to enjoy your pregnancy and children.
The life skills taught and practiced in this program are particularly helpful for dealing with anxiety and depression, both of which are common to pregnant and post-partum women.
This program is open to pregnant and postpartum moms. Non-Kaiser Permanente moms are welcome.
It is important for Mothers to have this time to focus solely on themselves. For this reason infants and children are not allowed to attend.
Payment and pre-registration is required for all attendees. $20 Call to enroll 858-616-5600
