Mindfulness-Based Childbirth & Parenting is an evidence-based childbirth education and mindfulness curriculum developed by Nancy Bardacke, CNM and mindfulness teacher. It is a direct adaptation of the well-researched Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program (MBSR) created by Jon Kabat-Zinn out of UMass.
In the 9-week class (MBCP) you will learn to:
It is a comprehensive birth preparation class - we cover the anatomy & physiology of childbirth and breastfeeding, as well as newborn cycles and postpartum life - AND it is a class that builds skills to support your life as you are living right now and as parents.
The Mind in Labor weekend (MIL) is a taste of mindfulness alongside a comprehensive birth preparation. In the abbreviated time frame, we will cover the key elements of the birth curriculum, impactful on all birthing and parenting experiences that lie ahead.

"the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, with compassion and open-hearted curiosity.
