COMBINING THE EXPERTISE OF A MIDWIFE WITH THE CALMING PRINCIPLES OF HYPNOBIRTHING
A mindful pregnancy support App with a hypnobirthing friendly wave (contraction) timer
My Mindful Midwife App
Created by practicing midwife, Anneke, from Komu and well-known hypnobirthing instructor, Emiliana, from The Mindful Birth Group®, My Mindful Midwife® is the ONLY pregnancy app that allows you to choose your birth preference (physiological or abdominal birth) and see information tailored to that preference and due time. If your birth preference changes at any time, just switch it over with the flick of a button.
Stay present in each week as you grow your baby and look forward to meeting them with this fully customisable app.
All births and routes to pregnancy are supported through the features, design and language used. We know pregnancy can feel overwhelming, so the simple interface is purposely free of clutter for a mindful and calming experience.
Weekly updates: Customise your updates with your baby’s nickname and then find out what’s happening week by week. How big is your baby this week? What do you need to know? Feeling anxious about the changes in your life/body or upcoming birth? We’ll support you with:
Key information and milestones about your baby’s and your body’s development
See what size your baby is in relation to our beautifully drawn sketches
Things to consider for expectant parents
Positive affirmations to support your mindset along the way.
Mindful Relaxation audios: Tailored to your birth preference, these have been created by The Mindful Birth Group to relieve any anxieties you may have around pregnancy and birth:
Positive affirmations: Proven to help the brain to reframe birth in a positive way, and therefore promotes relaxation and calm however you meet your baby
Deep relaxation for pregnancy and birth: Listen to this during pregnancy before you go to sleep, and then during the birth to help your mind and body relax
Birth partners relaxation: One for the partners as it’s important that they feel confident, calm and in control too! Perfect for taking a mindful moment throughout the pregnancy.
What to expect on the birth-day: Knowledge is power and taking the unknown out of a situation will help you to feel much calmer and in control (letting oxytocin in and keeping adrenaline at bay):
For physiological birthers: Learn from Anneke our midwife what the early signs of labour are and what to do when they happen
For abdominal birthers: Learn what happens during an abdominal birth right from the moment you arrive at hospital on the day
Birth bag packing lists, tailored to your birth preference: Where do you even start with knowing what to pack?! We’ve got you covered with our midwife approved, hypnobirthing friendly lists:
A list for you, including the oxytocin supporting items you could consider using
A list for birth partners
A list for baby
Space for your own list of other ‘to do’s’
A super helpful space for you to enter all of your pregnancy and birth related contacts e.g. hospital, midwife, reflexologist, family who may need to know you are going into labour etc.
