Each part of pregnancy brings new experiences and new opportunities to connect with baby. Bellybuds has just launched Journey Into Pregnancy, a meditative series of intentional explorations for the expectant mother. Designed to complement an expectant mother’s journey as she progresses from conception through birth, this four-part series begins with meditations on balancing the chakras and continues through the 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimesters. For every album sold, Belly Buds will donate a portion of proceeds to Little Ripples, a Darfuri refugee preschool program tailored to a population exposed to severe trauma.
