As a doula and Mom of two sweet littles I love positive birth affirmations! There is something powerful when you take out the fear, anxiety, negative thoughts and dark emotions about birth and begin to speak TRUTH to yourself.
During my second pregnancy I wrote down positive affirmations on sticky notes and stuck them around the house. Maybe I'm a bit crazy.
But my house began to look something like this... I should have taken a picture but the lovely Meggan from The Birth of a Mother shared her awesome photo.
"My body was made for this!"
"Every wave of pressure brings me closer to my baby"
"God brings me peace"
"I trust in my ability to birth my baby"
"My baby will come into the world when she is ready"
"You are strong enough"
"God will give me strength"
These are also beautiful from Mother Rising
Grab some paper and start writing. Put these affirmations in a place you will see everyday. Make a birth affirmations banner. Put sticky notes around your house or in your car. Involve your partner. Have fun.
