Expecting Mindfully

Start: Thursday, February 13, 2020

Nourish your emotional well-being during pregnancy and post-partum

Expecting Mindfully is an eight-week mental health and wellness group program designed for birthing parents and new mamas. Expecting Mindfully is offered live online through web conferencing so you can attend the group from your home. Babies and young children, and the inevitable interruptions they create, are welcome and expected. Each session will be 2.5 hours long, including time for breaks and time to interact in small groups with other participants and with the facilitators.

Expecting Mindfully is adapted from the extensively researched, effective, and popular Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) program. The Expecting Mindfully workbook (authors and developers Dr. Sona Dimidjian and Dr Sherryl Goodman) is used in supporting this group. All participants are required to purchase an electronic or paper copy, with links provided below.

Who Should Attend
This program is for you if:

  • You are an individual who is pregnant, post-partum, or in early motherhood and you want to maintain the best possible mental health and well-being for both you and your baby
  • You are concerned about the effects of feeling down, stressed, tired, or anxious on your parenting and the well-being of your baby
  • You have a personal history of living with anxiety or depression and wish to take preventative steps to prevent recurrence

Participants Will Learn
The Expecting Mindfulness program uses mindfulness practices, cognitive exercises, and supportive discussion to help you develop the skills required to change your way of thinking and acting in a way that:

  • Helps you nurture your mental health during this important time in your life
  • Helps with managing the stress and anxiety around pregnancy and early parenthood
  • Helps prevent depression or the recurrence of depression
