All mothers feel inundated at times, it's part of the job description, but for new moms experiencing a variety of feelings for the first time motherhood can be overwhelming.
For this reason, Mommy Meditations is likely to be a welcomed gift by any new mom. It provides techniques designed to help new moms ease their mental and physical transition into motherhood. The CD contains inspiring insights, guided meditation, calming music, MOMtras (mommy affirmations) and more. As a new mother progresses through the system she learns how to make positive changes that allow her to be a calmer, happier and a more "balanced" mom. Even veteran mothers will enjoy the respite from a hectic day that Mommy Meditations offers.
The inspiration for creating Mommy Meditations came after a trip to the doctor when co-creator Devin Bailey and his wife learned that she was at high risk for postpartum depression. Upon this diagnosis, the Baileys conducted extensive research on the post-pregnancy "baby blues." They learned that outside of drugs and psychology there was little available to women experiencing the extreme hormonal changes that occur after childbirth.
The Baileys research lead them to Dr. Kerri Parks, Ob/Gyn, whose subsequent collaboration was driven by a special connection to the value Mommy Meditations held for new moms. As the mother of four children, she personally battled postpartum depression and the overwhelming loss of her husband to a fatal car crash just days before the birth of her last child. Using meditative practices she emerged a happy, successful parent who was able to provide the love, nurturing and patience her kids needed.
What makes Mommy Meditations a uniquely valuable resource is that it empowers all new moms to take control of their own well-being. New moms learn how to prevail over their own new feelings through the calming and healing benefits of meditation along with powerful insights from Dr. Kerri Parks, Ob/Gyn.
With nearly 12,000 women giving birth each day, Dr. Parks believes, "Mommy Meditations targeted meditation system provides women with a better chance of maintaining their emotional balance and fully appreciating the joys of motherhood."
Mommy Meditations should not be considered a cure for postpartum depression, nor a substitute for medical and / or psychological consultation. However, it can help new moms recognize, understand and better manage related feelings that may not yet be clear.
Narrated by Dr. Parks, Mommy Meditations can also be a beneficial addition to a therapeutic program overseen by a doctor or therapist. The CD retails for $19.99 or .99 for individual downloadable tracks and is available at http://www.MommyMeditations.com/ .
