About this deal
Overall, results of the above models support the hypothesized benefit of prenatal mindfulness training through MIL for child-bearers’ perinatal distress through the first to second year postpartum, with the most marked benefit expected for pregnant people higher in anxiety and/or lower in mindfulness. In particular, further investigation is required to establish whether mindfulness training predicts lasting differences in trajectories of often comorbid manifestations of perinatal distress, as well as to identify baseline characteristics that moderate these effects. Antenatal screening and early intervention for “perinatal” distress, depression and anxiety: where to from here?
e., factors that predict differential responses to the intervention) to determine who may optimally benefit from such programs and inform personalized medicine [ 40].

All of those deliberate actions where you are focusing on specific things are what it's like to put mindfulness into practice. While you sit with your eyes closed and focus on your breathing, imagine yourself going through the various stages of labor in a calm and relaxed state.Staying well during pregnancy and the postpartum: a pilot randomized trial of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for the prevention of depressive relapse/recurrence. In addition to main effects, we were interested in baseline individual difference characteristics that might blunt or boost effects of antenatal mindfulness training. g., [ 10]) and that trajectories of distress (as opposed to levels at a single time) matter for mother/infant outcomes [ 11], it is further critical to identify effective preventive intervention strategies that durably reduce distress across the perinatal period.
