Mindful Mamas, a maternal wellness company that launched its mindfulness app in 2020, has announced that the app is now available for employers to offer as an employee benefit. In 2020, 9.8 million working mothers reported feeling burnout, proving the importance of nurturing women’s mental health.
Mindfulness and meditation have been shown to have a myriad of benefits including, but not limited to, increased focus, job satisfaction and a positive relationship to work. Mindful Mamas offers over 500 mindfulness, meditation and self-care practices that help mothers across the entire motherhood continuum from trying to conceive through empty nesting. Practices range from 30 seconds to 20 minutes and speak to the unique challenges and celebrations of motherhood in today’s times.
“We hear from working women daily who feel torn between and exhausted by the demands of work and motherhood,” said Terra LaRock, Founder and CEO of Mindful Mamas. “We understand the harm of portraying mothers as superheroes that ‘can do it all’ and have made it our mission to not only normalise the hidden experiences of mothers but give them coping tools to help navigate everyday challenges.”
Recent feedback from those who have used the app indicates that more than 80% of mothers reported feeling better or much better after completing a practice in the app.Click below to share this article
