Birth affirmations are sayings or statements designed to change your mindset and help you maintain a positive outlook or mood regarding the birth process. You can choose the phrases that resonate with you, with your beliefs and your history.
Birthing people all over the world are writing these affirmations, to then read and repeat them during pregnancy and labor like a mantra that would help them connect with the process in the most empowering way.
These statements are meant to be about how YOU manage the whole process. Focus on your strength, how your body works and your baby.
Some of my client's favorites are:
"I'm strong and capable"
"My body was made to do this"
"The pain is intense but I can handle it"
"Soon I'll meet my baby"
"I can do anything for a minute"
"I am safe and loved"
