by Belleruth Naparstek

These hypnotic, immersive, guided meditations on how to prepare for pregnancy and childbirth provide critical, research proven help for discomfort, anxiety and unwanted symptoms that can accompany both experiences.

The pregnancy meditation imagery inspires confidence in the body and gratitude for it, while promoting relaxation and feelings of safety, protection and support. It also reframes symptoms such as nausea and fatigue; and sets the stage for labor and delivery by enhancing the sense of connection with the baby within and with all the caring, protective, well-wishing ancestors who have come before.

The guided imagery for preparing for childbirth offers breathing techniques for labor, by providing hypnotic tools for easing discomfort, focusing the breath, working with contractions, increasing trust in the body's wisdom and awe for the miraculous process of giving birth.

Each track has an accompanying set of positive affirmations, which offer brief versions of the same empowering images and ideas, ideal for those who prefer their mind-body tools for pregnancy and childbirth in smaller doses.

Scored by the inspiring, lyrical music of Steven Mark Kohn, these guided meditations accompany this powerful time of life with the gifts of mastery, reassurance and empowerment.

Listen to the samples and see for yourself why these pregnancy and childbirth meditations are such a popular, word-of-mouth favorite and so heartily recommended by OBGYNs, obstetrical and delivery room nurses, childbirth educators, midwives and dulas nationwide.

Recommended for both mothers- and fathers-to-be when preparing for pregnancy and childbirth, with the suggestion to sometimes listen together. Not generally recommended for those who have previously experienced a traumatic loss in pregnancy or childbirth.

    :

    I've just listened to the pregnancy part (not the childbirth par). It gets weird towards the end and mentions "guardian angels" and "animal helpers". I found that part disturbing and NOT relaxing. I have 3 other cds/mp3s from Health Journeys in the past. I was particularly happy with the IVF mp3, but this one is just weird.

    This meditation was INVALUABLE to me during my pregnancy. I credit it with facilitating the healthy and successful childbirth of my first child.

    :

    I am 19 weeks pregnant and get up every few hours at night, except when I listen to the Healthy Pregnancy Guided Imagery before I go to bed. I usually fall asleep during it but still I sleep right through to the morning. Thank you so much for this invaluable tool.

    :

    I loved this! I also had a history of miscarriages, and this really helped relieve my anxiety and help me prepare for birth. I ended up with pre-eclampsia, and these cds helped me to stay calm during labor. I even managed to have a pain med-free birth despite being confined to my bed (notice I did not say pain-free!). Not the natural birth I had envisioned, but beautiful. And the nurses asked me what I was listening to I was so calm.

    I recommend to everyone i know! i loved it! and I even brought it with me to the hospital to put me at ease... the nurse commented that it was nice and she enjoyed it while she took my vitals.

    I highly recomend this CD. I had anxiety about my pregnancy and the health of my baby. However after using this CD daily I quickly became confident and excited. I was able to relax and enjoy my pregnancy and gave birth to a happy, relaxed, and healthy baby girl!

    These CDs made a HUGE difference in my pregnancy, my empowerment and my confidence. I strongly recommend them. I was never a believer in meditation prior to these CDs.

    :

    I can't recommend this set enough! I had a history of miscarriages, and this CD really helped relieve my anxiety about maintaining a healthy pregnancy. Also, I listened to these CDs during labor, and they were instrumental in allowing me to relax and allowing my labor to progress, thereby helping me to avoid a c-section. Well done!

    :

    I purchased this cd set for use in my childbirth classes I teach and I absolutely love them. I wish I had them for my deliveries. Everyone always asks where can they get them from. You, Belleruth are highly recommended by me.
