Mindful Birth PDX offers a variety of ways for you to explore and experience the benefits mindfulness practices.
Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting is our signature course, covering the basics of childbirth education, labor preparation, breastfeeding and newborn care. The integration of mindfulness skills provides essential tools to navigate the uncertainties of pregnancy, birth and parenting.
Looking for a community of other parents trying to cultivate mindfulness into their family life? Join our regular online Mindful Parenting Circle, which meets weekly throughout the year. Each session will include a period of mindfulness practice, gentle mindful movement, and a chance to connect with other parents.
Perhaps you’re looking for something a bit more individualized, due to scheduling, a rapidly approaching due date, or a previous challenging or traumatic birth experience. We’ll work collaborate together to create a single session or a personalized series that will help you develop the mindfulness skills you seek for birth and parenting.
Mindfulness has the potential to penetrate past surface appearances and behaviors and allow us to see our children more clearly, to look both inwardly and outwardly and act with some degree of wisdom and compassion on the basis of what we see.Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn, Everyday Blessings: the inner work of mindful parenting
