Mindful : October 2017
Things that spark our minds, touch our hearts, make us smile— or roll our eyes. Keep up with the latest in mindfulness. Top of Mind Reducing the Fear of Giving Birth “Stress, anxiety, and depression before, during, and after having a baby can create long-lasting negative outcomes for all involved. We ought to do anything we can to reduce that stress and lessen those outcomes,” says Nancy Bardacke, founder of Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) and author of Mindful Birthing. In a recent study— overseen by lead researcher Larissa Duncan, associate professor of human development and family studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison— Bardacke taught an 18-hour intensive workshop, The Mind in Labor, to 30 first-time mothers, all of whom had reported fear of the pain of childbirth. The encouraging results: Participants had lower scores for prenatal & post- partum depression and a trend toward less opioid medication use during labor than those who participated in a traditional childbirth class. “This is a very promising result,” says Bardacke. “Now what we need is more robust research to demonstrate the long- term effectiveness of these methods and more trained MBCP instructors.” Talk, Don’t Type Some Canadian coffeehouses have decided to cut off or limit WiFi. “ Peo- ple have socially taken for g ranted that the coffee shop is a workplace. We don’t want to be an office. We wanted to do it old school and be a social hub,” Jimson Bienenstock, co-owner of Hot- Black Coffee in downtown Toronto, To read more about the study, and mindfulness and childbirth in general, go to mindful.org/mindfulbirth told the Globe & Mail. Shortly after opening in 2016, the café turned off its WiFi. Bienenstock admits that busi- ness suffered, but he’s sticking by the decision. Meanwhile another Toronto café has limited WiFi usage during the popular dinner and weekend brunch hours, while others don’t have it at all. what’s new PHOTOGRAPHSBYTAWNYVANBREDA/PIXABAY,ENGINAKYURT/PIXABAY
