Preparing for a new baby brings up so many emotions. Everything from excitement to omg what did I get myself into? What’s happening to my body? I can barely be an adult myself, how can I take care of someone else?
We all want to be great moms and give our future kids the absolute best start in life. We really really don't want to screw them up! However, knowing exactly how to do that can get very confusing. It's easy to get overwhelmed by the fear of failure, parenting expert's advice, our own relationship with our mom, and society's idea of what a good mom is.
I know motherhood can be an amazing, fun experience, and I've seen it in action.
I know the best person to guide and advise you throughout your life as a mom is you!
So how can we prepare for a motherhood like that?
It does take prep work to get to a place where you can rely on your internal compass, but it is worth it. Books and classes on breastfeeding, birth plans, and parenting philosophies have their place, but the key to being a good mom really is as simple and as hard as finding yourself and being true to who you are.
You can start preparing for a happy motherhood now with these meditations.
These meditations put you on the path to modern motherhood that will leave you feeling competent, empowered, and successful in the next stage of life. Imagine going into motherhood excited, and confident you can be a great mom with a fun, amazing family.
Why is meditating is a great way to prepare for a baby?
Having a baby brings up all sorts of insecurities, situations that are of your control, and pressures from others and yourself. Suddenly you’re faced with dealing with twice your usual stress load.
If you don’t already have strong coping mechanism and a solid self-care routine in place, motherhood might send you over the edge. :)
As a pre-parenting coach who has spent countless hours in homes with moms, I know that taking care of yourself as a mother is the best thing you can do for your family.
The mom’s energy sets the tone for the home.
If she doesn’t know how to take care of herself and keep herself happy and healthy most of the time, she gets drained quickly and it takes a toll on everyone. You are worthy of taking time for yourself and if you want to enjoy motherhood there is no way around learning to take care of and love yourself.

What is a guided meditation?
Many meditations ask you to just stop thought. However, I find that to be really challenging and confronting. The only way I have been able to keep a steady meditation practice is through guided meditations. Simply get comfortable and listen to my voice. Very easy!
If you have never meditated before, don’t worry this is the perfect way to start.
These meditations compliment my main course, Mom Class, a 6 week pre-parenting course, which can also be found on Udemy. These meditations help you practice the essential mom skills and other key components of Mom Class.
