MINDFULNESS-BASED CHILDBIRTH AND PARENTING TEACHER TRAINING
The Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) course offers parents-to-be the opportunity to use the remarkably transformative time of pregnancy and childbirth to learn mindfulness skills for working with the stress, pain and fear that are often a normal part of this profound journey into the unknown. Through the learning offered in the MBCP course, the expectant parents will also have these skills in place for parenting mindfully from the moments of birth. Expectant parents find that as they practice being in the present moment, they are able to live through this ordinary—and extraordinary—life transition with greater confidence, wisdom and joy. The practice of mindfulness becomes not only a way of birthing but a lifelong resource for parenting and living with greater awareness, kindness, connectedness and care.
While MBCP is certainly not the only way to teach mindfulness to the childbearing population, the MBCP course is well-grounded in a methodology and approach that is evidence-based and that has been proven extraordinarily effective in reducing stress and increasing the mental and physical health and well-being of tens of thousands of people worldwide. We are delighted to now share this work through the online MBCP Teacher Training (MBCPTT) program so that others might be able to bring the profound benefits of mindfulness practice to those who are birthing and parenting the next generation.
