About Us

We understand that growing your family and having a healthy and happy pregnancy and baby is probably a top priority for you right now.

In fact, you may have already started nourishing your body by skipping out on sushi and taking prenatal vitamins instead.

So we created Expectful to help you nourish your mind.

Research shows that your mind and body are connected. During every phase of the reproductive journey your mind and baby are connected, too.

That’s why we believe that for soon-to-be and new parents, self-care is selfless. It’s the reason we recorded the world’s largest library of guided meditations for your fertility, pregnancy, and parenthood journey.

Expectful is structured around a series of guided meditations that are available in 5, 10, and 20-minute formats. You’ll also find short stories to help you sleep at night.

Each guided meditation focuses on a different moment or milestone in your reproductive journey, and is designed to help you through your unique challenges.

All of the content we create is based on interviews with many soon-to-be and new parents just like you, and with the help of licensed psychologists, hypnotherapists, and meditation experts.

We are thrilled to be your place of calm during one of life’s most wacky, weird, and wonderful transformations.

Our Story

Hi, I’m Mark, an unmarried man with no children, and Expectful’s unlikely founder.

I discovered the life-changing benefits of meditation in my mid-twenties. I was able to navigate life’s challenges with greater ease, watched my mental capacity skyrocket, and started seeing marked differences in almost every area of my life.

As my health, happiness, relationships, and professional life improved significantly, I recalled my mother’s struggles with anxiety and depression when she was raising me, and I wondered if meditation might be an especially great tool for new moms.

I dove into the research and found studies that show the negative effects anxiety and depression can have on a baby, along with studies highlighting meditation’s ability to improve fertility, pregnancy, and motherhood outcomes.

A lightbulb went off.

I saw the power of this simple, easy, and completely accessible tool to transform the lives of parents and the next generation.

I teamed up with a meditation teacher and hypnotherapist to create a few guided meditations for pregnant women, and we offered them to our expectant friends in exchange for feedback. We listened closely, created more meditations, shared them with more women, and Expectful was born.

Today, I’m surrounded by a team of strong women, including some of our first team members Anna and Yukie, who came onboard after using the app during their pregnancies.

Every audio we produce is informed by the generous feedback our users share.

We envision a world in which mothers and fathers are emotionally supported and uplifted throughout their journey.

We hope you’ll join us.


With love,

Mark Krassner
