Guided Meditations for Pregnancy & Parenthood

The meditations below offer an opportunity to direct always-needed compassion and love to yourself, to your baby, and to any other individual who has been a part of your journey.

If you’re new to loving-kindness meditation (also known as "metta meditation"), welcome.  The key to loving-kindness practice is to remember that not only are you completely deserving, worthy, and capable of receiving love and kindness, but are also capable of giving it.

As you repeat the phrases offered by the teacher, see if you can really mean each phrase.  Doing so will express a clear intention, planting the seeds of goodness and loving wishes over and over in your heart, and ultimately in the heart of your baby.

If you have questions about the whys and hows of loving-kindness meditation, review these brief FAQs or contact us.  We'll be happy to answer any questions you have.

Hugs,
The Nest Ink Meditation Team (Fern, Heidi, and Gary)
