When I was newly pregnant I found myself worrying all the time. Worrying about baby's development, worrying about what mysterious thing could happen to me during pregnancy and worrying about the birth. I had no idea what I worry I could be, but I sure found out. Between the knowledge I had coming into pregnancy and birth as a prenatal teacher, combined with reading and internet searches, I found worry could be an easy constant companion in my pregnancy. I also found very quickly that I needed a practice to help me navigate that. Below is a practice I used during my pregnancy to help with anxiety and worry (the great thing? we keep having those feelings as parents to so you can continue to use this practice postpartum).
This practice can be done seated or lying down, however you will feel most comfortable. Ensure that if you are lying down you have props to support you like pillows, blankets or bolsters. This can help you to be more comfortable, but will also remind the body that you are doing a practice and that its not time to fall asleep. Once you find a comfortable position to sit or lay in, let your eyes close and follow the steps of the practice.
Wisdom and insight with a dash of humor to help guide you on your journey through motherhood.
