9: Using Meditation to Overcome the Trauma of Pregnancy


“The midwives wanted to send me home with some Panadol, giving me the instructions to return in two days when the contractions were more serious - the baby was out in six hours” - Maria Phillips.

In this episode Maria Phillips joins the podcast and discusses how guided meditation, mindfulness and education helps with having a 'Calm Birth' . These lessons are then applied to the wider context of every day life and other traumatic events.

The episode ends with a Q&A session with listener questions for Zachary.
