A 5-Minute Prenatal Meditation That’s Good for Mom AND Baby

September 16th, 2016

That mom-baby connection is one of the greatest forces on earth. Case in point: one study conducted in Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Hong Kong found that meditating during pregnancy has a positive effect on a newborn’s health and that same infant’s temperament five months later.

  • Reduced stress
  • Better mental health
  • Improved immunity
  • Tension and pain relief
  • Better sleep
  • Increased energy
