Five Benefits of Meditation During Pregnancy

Ever Searched on YouTube for water birth videos?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

The most difficult part of my pregnancy didn’t have to do with the physical changes of my body, it had to do with the emotional ups and downs of my worried mind.

Each day of pregnancy brought up different challenges. One day I would feel anxious about making sure I was eating the right foods or exercising in the safest way possible, and the next day I would feel stressed about my upcoming prenatal scan or whether or not I would be able to handle the pain of labor.

Eventually all of this nervousness started to affect my mood, my sleep and my relationship with my partner. In effort to ease my worried mind, I looked into ways that I could naturally decrease my stress and anxiety while pregnant, and that’s when I came across the science behind meditation during pregnancy.

I had heard that meditation was good for people’s mental health but, I had no idea how beneficial it was for pregnant women and their growing babies. Below are the top 5 scientifically proven benefits of why women should meditate during pregnancy.
