Expecting and nurturing a baby is a joyous experience, but also involves unique emotional challenges. Unlike other mindfulness resources for moms and moms-to-be, this compassionate book is grounded in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), a proven program. Guided meditations and gentle yoga practices are interwoven with expert strategies for preventing postpartum depression. Clear suggestions for how to follow the program day by day are accompanied by quotations and reflections from other women, guiding each reader to take the best care of herself--as well as her baby. In a convenient large-size format, the book features journaling exercises and other practical tools for breaking free of the mental habits that can cause distress, (purchasers can download and print additional copies as needed). The companion website also includes audio downloads narrated by renowned meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg, as well as video clips of prenatal yoga practices.
