The discussion will be focused on “Managing Stress Through Difficult Times” and will include a Q&A session. Tickets are $40 per person. Proceeds will benefit My Brain & My Body, Miracle Babies newest program. The ticket price includes an entry to win a signed copy of Eger’s bestselling book and a link to the filmed discussion.

This virtual discussion, filmed live from Eger’s home, will be facilitated by Wendy Walker, former executive producer of CNN’s popular “Larry King Live” show, and will include an introduction by Dr. Sean Daneshmand, founder of Miracle Babies.

Eger is a sought-after clinical psychologist and lecturer, helping individuals discard their limitations, discover their powers of self-renewal, and achieve things they previously thought unattainable. Using her own past as a Holocaust survivor and thriver as a powerful analogy, she inspires people to tap into their full potential and shape their very best destinies.

My Brain & My Baby is Miracle Babies newest program inspired by Eger to provide mental health services for any mother with a complicated pregnancy. There are approximately 400,000 preterm deliveries in the United States and more than 130,000 babies born each year with congenital abnormalities requiring surgery. There is a great deal of stress with any pregnancy complication which can lead to increased risk for depression, anxiety and PTSD. My Brain & My Baby is designed to provide group and individual therapy, support and treatment to any individual experiencing prenatal or postpartum stress, depression or anxiety.

“We would like to remove any barriers for a mom with a complicated pregnancy facing increased stress, depression, or anxiety to be able to seek care with a therapist,” said Daneshmand. He added, “Some of these barriers include but are not limited to insurance, stigma associated with feeling sad, paucity of therapists, etc. We are raising $500,000 to be able to provide this service over three years.”
