This retreat is designed for those interested in exploring teaching Mindfulness-Based Childbirth and Parenting (MBCP) and mindfulness in other settings and for medical and mental health professionals seeking an introduction to mindfulness meditation and understanding its complementary relationship to obstetrics, midwifery, nursing, pediatrics, medicine, particularly family medicine and clinical psychology. Obstetricians, pediatricians, family practice doctors, midwives, labor and delivery and postpartum nurses, doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, prenatal massage therapists, infant massage instructors, pre and postnatal yoga instructors, infant mental health professionals, early childhood educators, marriage and family therapists, clinical social workers, counselors, educators or anyone interested in the health and well-being of families may well find this program of value to their work–and their lives.
