At Expectful, we see the tremendous impact that mental health and well being have on the journey to parenthood.
To us, the mind-body connection isn’t just an idea — it’s the key to navigating the physical, mental and emotional aspects of every stage of parenthood from the moment you decide to conceive.
With our evidence based meditation toolkit, we’re making it easier than ever to create health and well being through the power of mindfulness, and creating a world in which meditation is as common as prenatal vitamins.
My journey to Expectful started when I was pregnant with my son, Everett. After sailing through my first trimester, I was told at my 20-week ultrasound that I was high-risk for preterm labor and that if I wasn’t careful, my baby could be born at any time. After leaving that appointment and for the rest of my pregnancy, I was desperate for a way to navigate the stress and lack of control so that Everett and I could make it to our due date.
In my quest for inner strength, I discovered a breadth of evidence-based wellness tools: meditation, acupuncture, nutrition, yoga, hypnobirthing, and holotropic breathwork (to name a few). I found a weekly mother’s group that supported me through sleepless nights and never-ending days. I also joined Expectful. Expectful’s meditations, in combination with various wellness resources, helped me adopt a warrior’s mentality and cope with my harrowing journey.
Expectul’s meditation and sleep platform has already transformed the lives of tens of thousands of expectant and new families. My vision is to build on this success by broadening Expectful’s offerings and growing it into the go-to wellness resource for anyone in their motherhood journey.
The road to becoming a parent is challenging, joyous, and life-affirming. Expectful will be here for you every step of the journey.
Sending you love, light, and hope on your path to parenthood.
