Here’s a Sample of the “Connecting with Your Baby” Guided Meditation Script:

Take a moment and connect with your breath. ...

Feel your chest rise and fall as you breathe.

Become aware of the air passing gently through your nose, noticing the sensations of how the air feels.

Breathing a bit deeper now, filling your lungs until you are brimming with air, holding it for a moment, then allowing the air to release, your chest gently falls as the air escapes....

The next breath you take in, expand your belly like you are filling a balloon with air....and exhale by just letting go.

Don’t push the air out too much. Good....

Continue, fully concentrating on your breath,
and all of the sensations related to it.

And relax...allow for your breathing to return to normal,
not having to do anything at all.

Connecting with Your Baby, Connecting with Your Baby

During pregnancy, you and your baby were physically connected for a long time.

After birth, it is joyous to hold your baby and to see their beautiful face.

Welcoming this new life into the world is a celebration, but at times you could feel an emptiness after you no longer carry this life within you.

This is completely normal and is an expression of unconditional love.

This is why it is very important to hold your baby often and as close to your heart as possible, skin to skin, to feel how the connection between you continues to thrive.

Hold your baby close, and frequently, whenever you or the baby needs connection.

Feel their breath against yours, and breathe in unison with them at times.
