The second trimester brings many milestones during your pregnancy. In addition to your belly growing and feeling baby’s first kicks, this is the time when your little one develops their sense of hearing and begins to respond to sounds from the outside world. From around 20 weeks forward, you are encouraged to talk, sing and play music and voices to your belly. These passages are meant for you and your baby to listen to together as you deepen the bond and prepare for the new chapter in both your lives.

- “Meditation itself is a state that has been explored, described, taught and defined both in depth and eloquently by many different people and schools of thought. At its core, it is a practice in which an individual trains the mind to induce a state of consciousness that aids in the development of awareness, space, concentration, clarity, attention and insight. This series of internal exercises draws on my experience with many different teachers from particular lineages steeped in meditation, visualization and sensory techniques. The intention of this series of recordings is to offer a hybrid of these very specific and respected techniques that speaks directly to the needs of a pregnant woman and her family.” - Stacey
