Learning that you are pregnant can be a time of great joy and excitement, and also a time of high anxiety and stress. Neurofeedback is a safe and non-invasive way to de-stress during pregnancy.

Why adding Neurofeedback Training to Your Healthy Pregnancy Regimen
Neurofeedback is a non-invasive, effective and safe process to optimize your health. Clients may notice the following after a set of session:
- Feeling calmer
- Increased mental clarity and focus
- Dropping away of fears
- More appropriate response to situations
- Feeling lighter and greater ease
- Increased motivation and ability to accomplish tasks
Neurofeedback works by training the brain to use the present moment to decide what to do next, rather than old, often maladaptive patterns. It does this by triggering what’s called the orienting response, which is the brain’s ability to sense change in the environment and take in new information about what is different. The system we use, the Advanced NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback System, trains your entire central nervous system to perform optimally. It gives your system feedback about its maladaptive patterns and your brain decides how to use that information to improve its overall functioning. Nothing is added to your brain, therefore, it is very safe.
