Pregnancy is the time when a lot of women become more interested in self-care, inclined to try something new or strengthen their existing wellness habits. One great tool for overall wellbeing during pregnancy is meditation: it helps the mum-to-be feel more connected to her baby, revitalised, calm and more confident.
Whilst meditation is a hugely beneficial practice for everyone, it can sometimes seem daunting. To support women throughout the phases of pregnancy and empower them with a simple yet effective meditation practice, Silatha, a wellness lifestyle brand, has developed a dedicated Pregnancy Meditation Series coupled with the special jewellery edition.
This meditation program offers a progressive development whereby each practice has simple elements and is guided so that even beginners can easily find a state of relaxation. The series features a range of meditations to help women relax, connect with their baby and prepare for birth. What makes the Silatha Pregnancy Meditation Series unique is its connection to the pairing gem (Silatha necklace) which acts as both a reminder and amplifier of the meditation practice: every time you meditate you connect to the gem, infusing it with the positive qualities generated during the practice. Crucially in pregnancy, a gem can act for the mother as a talisman, reminding her of the qualities that she is bringing into her pregnancy.
All of us experience times of stress and challenge, and the great changes during pregnancy can heighten emotions for many soon to be mothers. A gem around the neck can remind a woman of all the positive qualities that she feels more aligned with, relaxed by and will help to bring her back to the positive range of emotions.
The necklace is long enough to sit close to the baby radiating positive vibrations for both mother and baby.
This meditation series is designed to be practiced throughout each phase of pregnancy. It was written by Tara Lee and Clare Daniell based on their experience as mothers and their work with thousands of pregnant women over the past decade. The meditations are designed to be accessible to all and to support women on the various stages of their pregnancy journey. It features meditations for deep relaxation (including yoga nidra), releasing any fear surrounding birth preparation, learning breathing techniques for birth and many more.
Tara Lee: “A woman in pregnancy is experiencing so much change, both in her body and life. Meditation can help women feel more connected to their baby and be more in tune with themselves, helping them make good choices in the food they eat, rest they take and movement that supports their body as it grows. It can help prepare women for birth, teaching them the skills they need to stay calm and present through the experience of birth”.
