Whether prior to conceiving, during pregnancy or afterwards, the cultivation of our capacity to access the felt experience of relaxation and inner peace is essential to reduce levels of stress (particularly chronic stress) and promote a lived experience of feeling well. Although a certain amount of stress is unavoidable and part of life, chronic unrelenting stress is non-advantageous for both a mother/pregnant parent and her/their baby. Stress, particularly when it accumulates can result in shorter length of pregnancy and infant birth weight and contribute to higher rates of intervention during pregnancy, labour, and birth. Chronic levels of stress from the time of conception onwards, programs your little one to expect the world to be stressful and may contribute to greater challenges during transition, breastfeeding, attachment, and bonding.
There are many tools we can access, to support the cultivation of inner peace and relaxation. Deep Yin Restoration Sessions is an invitation to drop out of the everyday mind and conditioned mode of being, to access the deeper current of wellbeing that is at the heart of all life. The ‘lived experience of feeling well’ may be described as health, qui, prana, vital force, Reiki, intelligence, love, the Goddess or God, or simply healing energy. Whatever its’ name, in this deep state of relaxation, the body-mind begins to vibrate with a harmonious frequency, and like a pebble dropped in still water, the ripples of harmony and peace begin to flow.
