This App can greatly help the expectant mother relax and actually bond with her unborn child. The results can be incredible! A positive attitude about the pregnancy is important to a successful and relaxed delivery and reduces the chances of postpartum depression.
Great for those wanting a natural child birth ( lamaze, Bradley method, Hypnobabies) or in conjunction with any birthing program.
If you have a good friend or relative who is in the mid to late stages of pregnancy this App is one of the greatest gifts you can give her!
A pregnancy can involve a lot of fears and stress, this App can help naturally reduce both using proven techniques. Before, during and after the delivery of that precious baby boy or girl.

Example of underlying vocal:
Dear Little Baby, This baby inside me.
I'm here to let you know that I want you. That you're loved, you're wanted.
That as I feel the changes as they take place in my body, I know that it's because of the changes that I'll make with you. Letting you know that you are wanted and you'll be cared for.
That in order to care for you I am caring for myself. I'm eating properly. I'm nourishing my body with love for you and love for all of those that have to do with you.
I have confidence that you'll grow strong. To be a peaceful, tranquil, loving baby. And as my body swells with pride, I know that inside there's that beautiful, beautiful you.
I love the way you feel. I love your touch from inside. I love your heart beating beside mine.
I love what you're going to look like.
What you are going to be like. I practice relaxation. I practice patience. I allow my mind to be calm and peaceful.
I allow my body to be tranquil and mellow.
I allow my thoughts to be positive, and comforting for I know you'll be coming to me through me. And that your birth will be easily acceptable, loving, and kind.
