Enormous changes happen during pregnancy, not just physically. A woman is often extra busy and it is too easy to become tired and stressed, so a little book like this, another in the mindfulness series from Leaping Hare Press, is essential to ward off anxiety and stress. Ideas and exercises help smooth this important life transition by developing acceptance, connecting with the inner self and honouring the state of pregnancy. As the birth approaches, a mindful birth meditation practice is offered. The gift of mindfulness during labour is the ability to defuse negative reactions to what is happening physically.
