Why weeLove Headspace:

"Mommy Brain" is a common condition that makes it hard to remember your own name or properly put away a gallon of milk. It peaks following the birth of a child and usually persists until they attend college. 

Give your mommy (or daddy) brain a much-deserved break with Headspace. This iOS and Android app guides you through the practice of mindful meditation... in just ten minutes a day. Even the busiest new parent can and should treat themselves to that!

 

Sessions are led by Andy Puddicombe, a meditation and mindfulness expert. (Not only does he kind of sound like Jude Law, but we find his British accent to be instantly calming.) Science shows that this type of meditation leads to peace of mind in the moment and long-term stress management. 

The app and first 10 sessions are free, with monthly and yearly subscriptions available. So, toss the to-do list aside, and take a few minutes to just... breathe.

  • Downloaded Headspace and used it throughout my pregnancy to keep myself calm and present. Especially recommend it for long commutes! Also loved the “Sleep” playlists! Aug 15, 2019

  • Such a great app to use! When I was beginning with meditations this was a great place to start. May 30, 2019

  • After I put baby down and before I go to sleep, using this app helps me get (finally) relaxed and ready to get whatever hours I can have! Jun 26, 2018

    Helpful app to listen to before bed or when you need a break from the chaos of life with a toddler. You can choose the duration of the meditation, which is nice if you only have a few free minutes. Jun 08, 2018

    I haven't made time to use it more. But I won't dare delete the app because I know I should use it more. Jan 09, 2018

  • I started the pregnancy pack the day I found out I was pregnant and it has continued to help me with pregnancy related anxiety. Clear and easy to understand instructions and a very well designed app. Sep 10, 2017

  • Great meditation app! If you're a beginner, this is a perfect way to start Sep 09, 2017

  • Since I have read mindful birthing, this is a great app to complement the book. If you are planning a natural birth, this helps practice breathing techniques! Feb 27, 2017

    I have been using this app for 10 minutes daily for about 3 months and have noticed such a difference in my ability to pause before reacting to toddler tantrums and overall feel more grounded! Sep 20, 2016

    I would not be able to meditate without this app, and I would not be able to survive without meditating. Aug 25, 2015

  • A nice break! Nov 09, 2014

  • This is the fastest way I have found to quiet my mind when I go to bed. Used to lie there for 45 mins while the wheels turned. Now thanks to this guided med., I'm out by minute 6. Awesome app! Aug 28, 2014
