Q&A with SPB: Benefits of Meditation

Here is the video with the answer to today's question.  Keep scrolling for more of the information we learned in our Bonus Class with Jennifer, and for links to on-line meditation resources!



What is meditation?
The practice of concentrated focus to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.
(Adapted from the definition in the Farlex Medical Dictionary)

Different ways you can meditate:

Focus on:

  • Sound
  • Object
  • Visualization
  • Breath
  • Movement
  • Attention


Why do we want to reduce anxiety in pregnancy?

Anxiety during pregnancy may:

  • Lead to low birth weight
  • Increase the complications of labor
  • Increase the risk for miscarriage
  • Increase the risk of birth defects
  • Lead to premature delivery
  • Increase the use of prescription medications
  • Make pain worse during labor
  • Stress family members


What are the benefits of meditation?

There are three main benefits of meditation that you can access whether you are pregnant or even if you are not:

  • The more a person meditates, the higher their endorphin levels.  Endorphins are the pain-relieving and pleasure-enhancing hormones - we can always use a boost!
  • Increased levels of DHEA (dehydroepiandosterone) - it is an immune-boosting hormone that defends against disease, improves mood, balances brain chemistry, benefits vision, hearing, muscles, bones, and regulates blood pressure.
  • Increases levels of melatonin - it is a hormone that improves sleep, assists with a general sense of well-being, and it crosses the placenta! Your baby benefits from that sense of well-being, receiving the assurance that all is well. Good levels of melatonin have been shown to lead to an improvement in relationships with others.


In addition, clinical evidence illustrates that meditation is highly effective in the treatment of panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, substance dependence and abuse, ulcers, colitis, chronic pain, psoriasis, and dysthymic disorder.

Three main kinds of meditation that have been scientifically studied:

Mindfulness Meditation
This type of meditation comes out ot the traditional Buddhist meditation practices.  In formal mindfulness practice, the meditator sits with eyes closed, focusing the attention on the sensations and movement of the breath fro approximately 45-60 minutes at a time, at least once a day.  The essence of mindfulness meditation is not what one focuses on, but rather the quality of awareness the meditator brings to each moment.  "The goal of mindfulness is for you to be more aware, more in touch with life and whatever is happening in your own body and mind at the time it is happening - that is, the present moment." (Jon Kabat-Zinn)

Relaxation Response
This is another kind of mental focusing.  Meditators are taught to focus upon the repetition of a word, sound, prayer, phrase or movement activity (including swimming, jogging, yoga, and even knitting) for 10-20 minutes at a time, twice a day.  They are taught no to pay attention to distracting thoughts and to return their focus to the original repetition.  

Transcendental Meditation
This has its origins in the Vedic tradition of India.  The meditator sits with eyes closed and concentrates on a single syllable or word (mantra) for 20 minutes at a time, twice a day.  When thoughts or feelings arise, the attention is brought back to the mantra.  Jennifer mentioned one of her favorite types of focus music are the kirtans by Govind Das & Radha.  

How to work it into your daily routine:
Jennifer mentioned that it takes 14 days to get into the habit of a daily meditation practice.  The really amazing difference it can make is that not only will it improve your pregnancy experience and quite probably enhance your labor and birth, you can also reap the benefits during postpartum, and beyond!  All the hormones that are created (endorphins, DHEA, melatonin) are a HUGE plus for sleepy, tired parents of newborns. 

I hope you are now inspired to find a way to work even a minute of mindfulness and meditation into your daily routine.  Our attending students received a handout that Jennifer shares with all her clients with three simple meditations that can be done in under five minutes; plus they got a nifty magnet with over a dozen affirmations that can be used as focus points.  

These are some online resources for free recordings that you can play if you want some guided meditations to get you started, or if you just need fresh ideas to work into your daily routine if you are already meditating:

Inside Look: Moon Dreams Music

Posted on March 3, 2014 at 5:12 PM Comments comments ()
One of the beautiful things about the internet is making connections with other individuals who love supporting families.  I had the pleasure of meeting Susan Moss through LinkedIn.  I am so honored to bring you our virtual interview and to share her amazing music with our Sweet Pea students and readers through our blog and our newsletter.  I hope you will be as touched by her music as I have been! 

Tell us a little about your company.
MoonDreams Music Recording Group is an independent Record Label specializing in lullaby music for babies and their parents.  Each song has an instrumental version to sing along to.  Some of our lullaby music is interwoven with the soothing sounds of the night and the ocean.  Our multi award winning lullaby cd, "Carousel Dreams" has helped many babies fall asleep, and parents relax. 
  
How did you know that music was your calling?
I knew that music was my calling at around age 5 or 6.  I would always sing to songs on the radio, tape myself singing as a kid, and always knew I wanted to be a singer.  I started writing poems at age 11, and songs in my late teens.

What ages do you have in mind when you create music?
The lullabies we wrote are perfect for babies and toddlers, and also relaxing for parents to listen to.  The instrumental versions of our songs are great to sing along to as well.  We are currently working on new projects, which include a children's holiday song, summer themes, and relaxation music for all ages.
 
What advice do you have for parents that want to share the love of music with their children?
My advice to parents is to start always playing soft music when babies are in the womb, and then always introduce different kinds of music as babies and toddlers.  Of course, our lullabies are very soothing for bedtime. 
 
What inspired Carousel Dreams?
Carousel Dreams was created by a friend, and myself and we were both inspired by our children.  My friend had some lyrics she wrote for her daughter, that she asked me to put music to.  We then had a repertoire of songs, including lyrics she wrote, and songs I had wrote, and it turned into, Carousel Dreams - a Collection of Lullabies
 
What is your dream for the families that listen to your music?
My dream for the families that listen to my music is to create a relaxing and soothing atmosphere for bedtime, naptime, and a loving family experience.
 
Do you have a favorite song from that album?
It's hard to pick a favorite song from that album, but some of my favorites are Night Song, Angel Blue Eyes and Little Sleeping Angel.
 
Rumor has it that you are in the studio again...do you have an “EDD” for your new album?
Yes, we have started recording new music, including a holiday-themed children's song, summer themed lullabies, and relaxation music for everyone.  It has been a long time in the making, and we will be releasing YouTube videos of the making of it, and updates as we go along.
 
We have already produced some YouTube Videos of our lullabies.  To hear our current music and to get the latest news, you can subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
 
In addition to our cd, we also offer a Product Line of MoonDreams Music Merchandise, including collections of t-shirts, baby gifts, fashion accessories, etc. with our original designs, logos, and Carousel Dreams cd cover art.  These products are available HERE and HERE.
 

Thank you for getting to know Susan Moss with me...Best wishes as she continues to write and record for her next album.  Enjoy this music collaboration with artist Laurie Shanholtzer, set to the music of "Night Song":

Dreams of the Sandman

Posted on November 13, 2012 at 11:00 AM Comments comments ()
Bradley Method® natural childbirth classes offered in Arizona: Chandler, Tempe, Ahwatukee, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Payson

Ahh – today’s blog post is inspired by the class on postpartum we just taught and two of our sweet students who are going through some sleepless nights with their daughters.  Warm thoughts and wishes for the sandman are being sent for them.


Instead of CIO, sleep with your baby - yes, that can be an option! A common suggestion when babies are sleepless is to let them cry it out, also known as CIO.  I cringe when I see those words.  I believe that babies are meant to be with their mamas for the first nine months of their lives – you can read more about why I believe that
HERE, and the babies that inspired this post are still under nine months of age.

As part of that MotherBaby dynamic, I believe babies cry because they want comfort - not to manipulate. Adults in relationships like to sleep next to their partners.  It is incredible to me that children and babies are expected to be okay sleeping alone. They are less emotionally mature and we ask them to do things that their adult parents (assuming they all live together), supposedly fully functioning and emotionally intact, do not do. 

I want to remind sleepless parents and readers of how amazing their infant child is.  When they are first born, literally EVERYTHING is new.

  • They have new sight...your child has never seen before without the filter from skin, muscle, fat and amniotic fluid.  They are truly experiencing the bright, white light for the first time.  All the sights they see are accosting their newborn, blurry vision.
  • They are hearing for the first time without the muting from skin, muscle, fat and amniotic fluid.  All the sounds they are hearing are bombarding their sensitive ears.
  • They smell and taste everything for the first time.  Literally, everything, for they have never smelled nor tasted anything except the amniotic solution they were floating in for their gestational period.
  • They are feeling everything for the first time.  They were protected from direct impact by mama’s wonderful protective design of skin, muscle, fat, uterine walls and amniotic fluid.  Their skin, covered with sensory receptors is electrified every time they are touched.

So this little person, who has so much change thrown at them in the split second that they are born, is in the process of learning about the world around them.  They crave the warmth of their mother’s body, or another comforting body, since they cannot regulate their body temperature on their own yet.  They are soothed by the rhythm of a beating heart, a sound that was a permanent part of their environment since the day they could hear in utero.

A baby who is crying is a baby who has a need that has not been met.  We are all familiar with the common ones: Are they wet? Hungry? Tired?

Then there are the reasons that we seem to have forgotten about as a culture…could they be lonely? Scared? Seeking reassurance? Craving safety in a parent’s arms? Growing?  Teething? These are no less important than the common reasons. 

It is easy to be seduced by all the toys, sleep aids and gadgets that promise a child will sleep through the night.  News flash:  babies are wired to cry when they need help…HERE are some great links to reasons from a developmental standpoint as to why babies *should not* sleep through the night.

So just how long does it take that little bundle of newness to be independent?  I am sure we will all have a different answer.  And along the path to independence, there is the discomfort of teething, growth spurts, psychological expansion from the mama as the center of the universe, to the rest of the family and then the realization that the world really is a very BIG place.

It works for some families to co-sleep, and for other families it is better to have the baby/child sleep in their crib/bed.  Or, you can do a little of both, which happens to be our choice.  Or...the list could go on and on.  There are always lots of options for a family to explore as they find the right path for them.

Here are my beliefs: 
1. Being a parent is not about you.  It is about the child.  Whether the child was planned or not, you brought the child into the world.  They are here now and plainly crying for your attention. I look at the current culture of parenting and wondering if the selfishness some people see and complain about in today’s youth might start in the early years when we expect them to fend for themselves instead of giving them the very best of us as parents, no matter what time of day or night they cry for help.

2. In addition, (again, assuming that a couple is raising the family), nighttime waking is not the exclusive territory of one parent over the other.  It is okay to wake your partner up so you can sleep.  Because our family's choice is to hold and interact with our children, even when they wake in the middle of the night, at one point, we had to figure out how to sleep in shifts.  This, too, passed, and for the most part, we all have the same bedtime *for now*! (Thanks to L.B. for that great phrase)

I implore you to examine your paradigm.  I suggest that our task as a parent is not to get our child to sleep through the night from the earliest moment possible.  Our task, our gift, is to respond to a child’s needs as they need to be met so that we create confident, loving and independent adults who are ready to meet the challenges they face in the world and leave their world a better place.

TO BE VERY CLEAR: I am not saying that all children who CIO cannot grow to be wonderful people.  To be wonderful is a choice that we can all make.  Andeach family has to choose what is RIGHT FOR THEM.

What I am suggesting is that we examine our parenting choices and make the best choice putting our child’s developmental needs first.  You will sleep again.  This season shall pass and you will wonder where your baby went, and what that rambunctious (toddler)(child)(adolescent)(adult) did with your sweet baby.    

Dare I ask…
How did you make it through sleepless nights with your baby?

Bedtime Routines

Posted on October 30, 2012 at 10:58 PM Comments comments ()
Every parent wonders when they are going to be able to sleep again.  It comes up on message boards everywhere:  When will I sleep again?  How do I train my baby to sleep?  Can’t I just let them cry it out (CIO)?

If you know me, you probably already what my answer is…your baby was designed a certain way.  Their cry is a signal that something is wrong and your attention is required to attend to your child and build that confidence between you and them.  Your babies are not supposed to sleep through the night – HERE is my favorite blog post on that topic.  

Will you be tired?  YES.  Will you need to nap?  YES.  Does it make sense to have a routine in some families?  YES.  Each family needs to make the choice that is right for them.

Here are some sage words from Dr. Sears:
“Nightwaking has survival benefits. In the first few months, babies' needs are the highest, but their ability to communicate their needs is the lowest. Suppose a baby slept deeply most of the night. Some basic needs would go unfulfilled. Tiny babies have tiny tummies, and mother's milk is digested very rapidly. If a baby's stimulus for hunger could not easily arouse her, this would not be good for baby's survival. If baby's nose was stuffed and she could not breathe, or was cold and needed warmth, and her sleep state was so deep that she could not communicate her needs, her survival would be jeopardized. 

 One thing we have learned during our years in pediatrics is that babies do what they do because they're designed that way. In the case of infant sleep, research suggests that active sleep protects babies. Suppose your baby sleeps like an adult, meaning predominantly deep sleep. Sounds wonderful! For you, perhaps, but not for baby. Suppose baby had a need for warmth, food, or even unobstructed air, but because he was sleeping so deeply he couldn't arouse to recognize and act on these needs. Baby's well being could be threatened. It appears that babies come wired with sleep patterns that enable them to awaken in response to circumstances that threaten their well being. We believe, and research supports, that frequent stages of active (REM) sleep serve the best physiologic interest of babies during the early months, when their well being is most threatened.”

I am not going to write anymore about sleep training today because you will see that there is already a lot of information out there from Dr. Sears and from some other mom-bloggers (see Link List below).

So if you are not going to subscribe to any of the sleep training methods, what can you do to help your child establish a healthy nighttime pattern?  I offer these ideas not because these are the methods to sleep train your child.  I offer them to get you thinking about the long term.  

Eventually, your child will outgrow the developmental need to wake at night.  You need to decide if it will be nice to already have a system in place to encourage them to get to bed easily, and stay in and fall asleep once they are in bed.   

IDEA #1
Set a bedtime that works for your family.  Here are the things to consider – what time does your little one start to act sleepy – rubbing their eyes, yawning, being silly, running around so that they stay awake…and if there is more than one child in your family, is there a collective bedtime or does everyone tire in shifts?  How much sleep do parents need?  What time does your family need to get going in the morning?  Once you know those numbers, start working backwards to figure out when you start to your bedtime routine.

IDEA #2
Make a routine that works for your family.  Include as many or as few of these components as works for you.  I found that when Bruss was traveling, a long, drawn out bedtime routine was a nice way to end the day by myself.  Now that we are all home together, we run around until we are exhausted and the parents fall into bed at night – the least tired one takes the shift with the Night Owl.
Snack – Dr. Sears recommends foods that are high in carbohydrates and calcium, and medium-to-low in protein.  You can also try foods that have tryptophan (helps the body make serotonin).  Here are some quick ideas: whole-grain cereal with milk, spinach omelette, turkey and cheese roll-ups.  Check the links list below for more sleep-friendly snack ideas.

Bath and Brush – water is a wonderful soothing tool.  It works just as well for children as it does for a laboring mother.  If your child likes to get rowdy in the bath, maybe you can do a timer for rowdy play, and then once the timer rings, clean up the toys, do some back floats to encourage all the muscles to relax and then do your cleaning/hygiene routine.  I read a neat idea as I was gathering thoughts for this post: you can dim the lights in the bathroom to start the winding down process.

Games – Bedtime games?  Of course there is always time for another game.  Here is a fun excerpt from Parenting.com:  Hide and Sleep  “This one is appreciated by those as young as 2: Hide all your child's getting-ready-for-bed props throughout the house, but in the general direction of his bedroom. Hang pajamas on the coatrack (when he finds them, he has to put them on right there); hide his toothbrush and paste in the refrigerator (he then goes to the bathroom and uses them); place a favorite doll or stuffed animal under a table, and his book on the stairs. Once your child has made it to the last item, he'll have gotten ready for bed almost without knowing it.”  For more ideas…you got it – check the link list or click HERE.

Books – We have found that books that reinforce the bedtime routine are helpful.  HERE is my nighttime reading list.  What are your favorite bedtime books?  My favorites are “Pelly and Mr. Harrison Go To The Moon” and “Harold and the Purple Crayon”.  I like these because there is a little journey, lots of whimsy, and children who are happily asleep at the end.  In the lovey-dovey genre, I like “Guess How Much I Love You” and “Love You Forever”, two books that capture the eternal love of a parent and/or caregiver for a child.

Songs and Music – This list is very unique to each parent, even!  It’s a fact that waltz music in ¾ time mimics the human heartbeat, so maybe think of ending your playlist with a couple of waltzes?  Besides the timeless Braham’s Lullaby, there are songs like Moon River, Hushabye Mountain and although they are not waltzes, I like the messages in songs like “The Impossible Dream” and “Climb Every Mountain”.  The songs I learned as a teenager to sing to my brothers and to the children I babysat were all Disney tunes: “Stay Awake” from Mary Poppins, “A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes” from Cinderella, “Once Upon A Dream” from Sleeping Beauty, “One Song” from Snow White…If you like to sing, you can learn these lullabies and sing them at your child’s bedside.  In the age of technology, even if you do not like or want to sing, you can create your own dreamtime playlist.

My last tip (or trick - depends how you look at it) is to mist each of the sleepers with some Lotus Wei "Inner Peace" and "Quiet Mind" flower essences.  You can read more about those products HERE.  I wish you all a good night and sweet dreams!

What do you and your family like to do at bedtime?

Bedtime Stories

Posted on September 19, 2012 at 8:34 AM Comments comments ()
Bradley Method® natural childbirth inatructor Krystyna Bowman, AAHCC offers a list of bedtime storiesWe have been getting back into our homeschooling schedule – loving our new curriculum!  I have a minute while everyone is asleep, which fits right into the theme for today – Bedtime Stories!
 
As the holiday seasons approach, I start to purge the house of all the extras.  I finally got to tackle our shelves of children’s books and did some sorting that was long overdue.  As stacks of books surrounded me, a pile of bedtime books we have for our children started growing higher and higher.  I had not realized how many books we have in this genre.
 
The books in the Bedtime Story pile got there because they are centered on the theme of going to bed or end with a sleeping character.  Some of them are repetitive and calming, which is great to settle and relax a child.   Some of them outline the routine, and some of the books are all about bedtime and nighttime adventures.  Since the goal is to get children to sleep, I like to start with one of the action or adventure books to interest and engage our older children, and then finish with a rhyming or repetitive word grouping book to calm everyone down.
 
Along with our book titles, I included books shared on a list of other bedtime stories to explore that was in “Goodnight Giant”.  I hope you find some new treasures on this list to share with your children, or maybe you can use this as a shopping guide for the next baby shower or birthday party you attend.  Some online booksellers offer previews before you buy – great tool for taking a peek at the titles from the comfort of your home!
