Do You Have Any Questions?
Here are some FAQ’s about meditation and pregnancy.
CAN MEDITATION HARM MY BABY?
No, the meditations we teach are non-intrusive practices that don’t harm either you or your baby. They are gentle, relaxing guided meditations.
There are many meditation techniques, but those that encourage detachment from the world were probably intended only for monks and nuns. You should not strive for quick results, nor try to reach the higher states without proper training. You need a teacher to do this and these techniques are beyond the scope of our website offerings. We strongly urge the use of common sense.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama is reported to have stated that meditation will not cure mental and physical illnesses, and we need to know ourselves enough to understand when we need to get outside help.
WHAT ORGANISATION IS BEHIND THE PRACTICES TAUGHT ON THIS WEBSITE?
There isn’t one. Everything you will see and learn on this website comes through our personal experiences.
HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT TO MEDITATE AFTER A MEAL?
It’s not great to meditate immediately after eating. Try to wait an hour or so after eating, or meditate before the meal. If you are diabetic, this does not apply to you; you should consult your doctor.
IS MEDITATION RELIGIOUS?
There are many traditions in which meditation is practiced, but meditation in itself is not a religious practice.
WHEN SHOULD I START?
MANY PEOPLE THAT MEDITATE ARE VEGETARIAN - SHOULD I BE?
There are no dietary requirements. Although given that you are likely to be pregnant, we encourage you to seek medical advice regarding the best diet for your personal circumstances.
