Jennifer had an epiphany in the moments following her son’s natural birth with a midwife in 2004. She said, “I want her job!” Jennifer became certified as a doula, and then a childbirth educator, and finally obtained her Certified Professional Midwife credential in 2011. She has operated her solo practice, Moxie Midwifery, in Chandler, AZ, since that time, and has gone on to obtain certification as a Hypnotherapist and Meditation Teacher. She also cofounded a mother’s empowerment group, Magical Mama Retreat, in 2013. She now spends her time serving midwifery clients, leading women’s circles and mama meditation classes, and enjoying her family, especially her 15-month-old daughter.

A simple and effective mindfulness and meditation program, designed for midwives to use for themselves and teach to their clients, is presented. Stress can contribute to and certainly exacerbates nearly all pregnancy, labor, and postpartum health issues and complications. Yet, there is little regarding stress management included in midwifery texts. Midwives may feel ill equipped to assist clients in dealing with generalized stress. Further, midwives themselves may lack the tools to moderate their own stress levels that naturally result from the demands of midwifery. Studies show that mindfulness and meditation both have the effect of reducing stress, and, in some cases, have improved clinical outcomes in patients. Both mindfulness and meditation will be discussed, and participants will leave with a downloadable, small-scale daily mindfulness and meditation PDF program, utilizing proven stress-management techniques, designed to be easily implemented, both by midwife and client. Participants will be invited to engage in practice of these techniques, throughout the presentation.

"Bringing the practices of mindfulness to our patients and ourselves can significantly impact our patients' relationship to pain and fear in labor, birth, and life. In this hour long presentation, participants will have an opportunity to experience a mindfulness practice and learn ways to implement mindfulness in childbirth and parenting. Participants will be exposed to how mindfulness meditation can decrease stress during pregnancy and beyond and hear about mindfulness skills for working through pain and fear in childbirth. Further, participants will learn how to encourage mindfulness life skills for parenting with wisdom, kindness, and connection from the moments of birth, as well as how mindfulness skills may be implemented as a way to disrupt intergenerational patterns of suffering. In particular, this presentation will offer concrete ways to bring mindfulness to the contractions of labor, and to the space in between the contractions of labor. The potential for separating ""pain"" from ""suffering"" using mindfulness practices will be explored, which can be applied to labor, and of course, to life. We will examine the research around mindfulness based interventions, the relationship between perinatal stress and outcomes, and the potential that mindfulness strategies have for reducing health disparities.
