Hello future meditator.
No matter where you are on your reproductive journey (preconception, pregnancy, parenthood), you’re here.
That means you’re investigating ways to give your child the best start in life. You’re already doing a good job.
At Expectful, we’re investigators too. So we peered around at the wide world of parenting. And everywhere we looked, we bumped into advice.
We generally like advice, but everything we encountered was about taking care of our bodies - food vitamins, etc.
Yet we couldn’t find anything about something essential - the connection between your mind and your baby.
And when we couldn’t find what we were looking for, we decided to kick the investigating up a notch.
We knocked on many doors - of scientific researchers, fertility experts, meditation guides, and soon to be and new parents just like you (hi).
Turns out, meditation is scientifically proven to help you conceive and give your child the best start in life. Physically and psychologically.
This means that when you meditate, you don’t just calm yourself.
You actually create the brightest environment for your baby’s physical and emotional health.
A simple way to make happier, healthier children and healthier, happier parents? We couldn’t sit on this news.
That’s why we created Expectful. It’s a guided meditation app for your fertility, pregnancy, and parenthood journey.
We're also integrated with Apple Health Kit to help track your minutes meditated over time to help you set your own goals for a regular practice.

Love this app!!
I’ve been struggling to get pregnant for 15 months now. I had one miscarriage and am now on to fertility treatments. This app has helped me tremendously, especially during the more stressful times of TTC. They have a whole section of fertility meditations for women who are TTC (probably 20 or so). I can relate in some way to each one of them and I choose the one that best fits my needs/struggles that day, whether it be trusting my journey, connecting with gratitude, or just preparing for sleep. The woman’s voice is very soothing, and you can choose between 10 and 20 minute meditations. I try to listen to one every night before bed, which is when I find I feel most anxious. It always helps me calm my mind and prepare for a great nights sleep. I want to thank you so much for this unique service! I love it and highly recommend it!!

Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to share your review and we're so glad our meditations have helped you during your Preparing to Conceive journey. We really appreciate your support.
Great app and great people!
During my pregnancy, my anxiety really kicked into gear. Combining that with a lack of sleep, I was not a very happy camper. I started trying to meditate and struggled through it.... until I found Expectful! The guided meditations are so calming and relaxing and it really takes the pressure off when you’re just learning! I feel less anxious and am sleeping better and there’s even a walking meditation for when I can’t quite sit still! Also, the people working behind the scenes are amazing. I had to email in and got a personal response within a few minutes. They went above and beyond to help me and really made me feel like they care about the people using the app and not just the app itself. I absolutely recommend Expectful!

Hi there. Thank you for your review and support of Expectful. We're so glad you're enjoying the different varieties of our meditations.
Amazing diversity in content, but...
I love the Expectful app. The content is similar to Circle & Bloom’s offerings, but much more granular (week by week in pregnancy, and day by day in the 40 days postpartum) and the format allows users to choose by topic and need as well (reducing tension, getting to sleep). There’s even a module for postpartum depression, which feels important. However, there could be more diversity in terms of the images and voices used to deliver or support the app. At this point in time the images I see representing motherhood are all white and the two primary meditation teachers sound very similar to one another. The feeding related meditations also presume the user is breastfeeding. Adding more images, voices and topics to represent mothers of many different cultural backgrounds and parenting paths would make this app feel more inclusive and enjoyable.
