Millions of families have been using fertility meditation scripts to help to cure infertility so they can start a family.

Giving birth is always a sacred moment and we all know the excitement of expecting a baby, but it can be even more so when we have a  mindful pregnancy. Mindfulness can help create positive feels about childbirth and positive relationships with your partner, your family, and yourself. Not only do meditative exercises create emotional soothing for mother and baby, but meditation helps with fertility in the first place. It is the safest and most effective non-pharmaceutical aid for pregnancy.

Of course mindfulness is only one part of having a healthy baby, prenatal nutrition, regular exercise, and substance withdrawal are all vital too. But there are many unique ways in which mindfulness meditation can help with fertility and pregnancy.

The research shows that it is indeed possible to use meditation for fertility. It helps because it reduces stress and boosts overall wellbeing, which is essential when it comes to conception.

There are so many different meditations though; knowing which are the best meditations for fertility can be a challenge. Thankfully, we can turn to scientific research and ancient wisdom to determine what are the best meditations for fertility.

Let’s take a look.

Best Types of Meditation for Fertility, Pregnancy, And Labor

*For scripts to all these meditation techniques, refer to our homepage.

1: Breathing To Relieve The Stress Of Infertility And To Reduce Pregnancy Pains

The best type of meditation for fertility is breathing meditation (or, at least, this is the best technique for beginners).

Breathing techniques are always the best place to start any kind of practice. Why? Because they are safe and easy, and they have a profound effect on both the body and the mind.

Breathing is the central energy of the body and mind. Proper breathing meditation helps with fertility because it corrects many issues with the body and will also balances the mind. This helps to create chemical balance which improves the chances of fertility.

One good way to do this is to imagine you are cradling your baby. Observe the sensations in this area. Now meditate on your breath moving around that space.

32 weeks into term, the placenta begins to carry hormones from the mother’s blood into the fetal environment. The stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol and can send negative signals to the fetal environment, but breathing meditation reduces both adrenalin and cortisol to create a more protective and nurturing fetal environment. Meditation also increases endorphins which are pain relieving and help produce a positive fetal environment.

The father-to-be can also use meditation for couvade, which is when the expectant father exhibits symptoms related to pregnancy. Breathing meditation helps fathers-to-be to relax and stay healthy too.

Breathing meditation is especially important in the third trimester of pregnancy, when stress and anxiety can set in. Just remember to breathe mindfully.

2: Labor Meditation Technique

Research suggests that you can reduce the pain of labor with meditation techniques and especial visualization. During labor, meditate on your breath. Imagine that your breath is a wave of the ocean coming and going. Visualize a relaxing beach and watch the wave of your breath coming and going.

Another labor meditation technique is to visualize your cervix as a lotus flower that is blossoming, while thinking, “Opening. Opening…”

3: Loving Kindness

Stress significantly affects your chemical balance and is a leading cause of infertility. [1]

One of the best ways to cure chemical imbalance is to create the right mental attitude.

Feelings of love, gratitude, kindness and compassion help your body to find balance and thereby help to cure infertility.

Buddhist Loving Kindness is one of the best meditations for fertility because it creates warm feelings of compassion and emotional support, which reduces the impact of stress on the body.

In Buddhist Loving Kindness you create feelings of love and compassion. This in turn balances your body and mind and helps you to get pregnant.

The basic loving kindness meditation script for fertility is “May [I] have love and kindness. May I be free from suffering. May I have the strength to overcome any obstacles in my life.”

You can also use loving kindness as a daily affirmation for pregnancy, by saying, “I am loving and caring for my baby.”

 

3: Guided Meditations For Fertility 

Sometimes the most relaxing thing in the world is just to sit back and have someone else lead you through the meditation.

When you use guided meditations for fertility you simply listen to someone else’s words and allow them to relax you. This is definitely the most easiest kind of meditation for conception. And it’s a great place for beginners to get started.

I really like the following guided meditation script for fertility.  .

4: Yoga

While yoga is not technically a meditation technique, it is related. Both yoga and meditation are spiritual practices that are immensely relaxing and help to restore balance to your body. And like meditation, we can also use yoga for fertility.

Yoga works both your body and mind at the same time. This creates complete body and mind relaxation and helps your body to prepare for fertility and, when pregnant, to have a healthy birth.

Yoga will help you to feel positive about childbirth, and your attitude will have a big affect on your chances of conceiving. It is also helpful when you are using reproduction technology.  [2]

5: Daily Mantras For Pregnancy

Mantra (or “japa”) is the recitation of specific words, phrases or sounds.

Many religions believe that reciting mantras helps with a variety of problems (there are mantras for everything ranging from money to love).

One wonderful daily mantra for pregnancy is “I am breathing strong breaths to support my baby”.

If you are interested in using mantras for pregnancy, there is one specific Kundalini Yoga mantra which could help you significantly. You can read about this in my article on mantras for conception.

You can also use daily affirmations for pregnancy, such as, “My baby is a healthy, happy, miracle.”

 

6: Music for conception

You don’t always need to use a meditation script for fertility. Music can help too.

If you’re not quite sure which conception-meditation to start using, try just listening to some relaxing music. Lie back and put some relaxing meditation music on to get you in the right state of mind.

It truly is important to relax as much as possible.

One easy way to relax is by lying back and listening to some meditation music.

Plus, this is by far the easiest method on this list. All you need do is put on some mellow tunes to help relieve stress.

Benefits of Meditation For Fertility

Science has revealed significant benefits of mindfulness meditation for fertility [3]. Methods like mindfulness and Buddhist practices such as Loving Kindness can all help when it comes to conception. And thank goodness, because infertility is a huge problem in relationships.

Many couples know how traumatic infertility can be.

WomensHealth.gov states that women who want to give birth and are unable, experience the following symptoms:

Infertility can be a significant cause of stress. In America alone, there are over ten million infertility cases. And this infertility leads to everything from low self-esteem to depression.

The good news is that we can use meditation for conception, and it will help with both fertility and with the mental health problems associated with infertility.

One of the most common causes of infertility is extreme stress, which affects the body’s chemical balance and prevents fertility from taking place.

Research conducted by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine revealed that extreme stress is the leading causes of infertility. (Read about how stress affects childbirth on CDC.gov).

Stress has a severe effect on the body, causing the body to cut out all nonessential bodily functions. When your body is stressed, it simply isn’t able to support another life.

If you have been unsuccessful trying to have a child, stress could be the reason. Reduce the stress in your life and you will significantly increase your chances of having a baby.

Considerable scientific research has shown that meditation reduces stress. Whether it’s Buddhist methods like Vipassana or modern methods like Mindfulness-Based Stress reduction, we can reduce the stress in life by meditating, and this will singnificantly boost overall wellbeing and increase the chances of conception.

Because of its huge effect on stress, meditation helps with fertlility. It gets the body back to normality and helps increase the chance of fertility. It also reduces cortisol and increases melatonin and oxytocin. This helps to balance the body and cure infertility.

Another benefits of meditation is for preeclampsia. Meditation balances blood pressure and heart rate to reduce the risk of preeclampsia, preterm labor, miscarriage and, placental abruption. It also increases the production of breast milk. Of course, meditation is only one part of the solution, and the best be is to attend educative courses on childbirth and breastfeeding.

The emotional aspect of mindfulness is also important. Fear creates pain that can lead to painful deliveries. Meditative exercises reduce negative emotions to make childbirth easier. As well as meditation, a compassionate doctor can help with the emotional aspects of childbirth and prepare your for different possible labor outcomes during pregnancy planning, like C-sections.

Mindfulness also helps us let go of plans. Some women plan everything, right down to the time of labor and the size of the baby’s head.

Proper breathing and proper posture during meditation can also help alleviate pregnancy pains like backache, stress, contractions, and loss of sleep.  A mindful birth also helps you to tolerate labor pain. When you’ve been in labor for hours only to have a few centimetres of dilation of can help to know how to calm yourself.

Overall, meditation can help you bring a healthy baby into the world and can soothe you through pregnancy and labor pain, as well as emotional challenges. The road to motherhood can be a challenging one. But mindfulness and meditation can ease the journey.
