My body was made to do this
I feel safe to give birth
I am strong
Each contraction/wave brings me closer to meeting my baby
I am confident in my body
I am releasing tension in every muscle, from my crown to my toes
I am calm
My baby knows the path
I am trusting the process
With every wave, I am more brave
I grew this baby, I will birth this baby
This is the day I’ve been waiting for
Why birth affirmations?
Hope and optimism have proven to have positive effects, and birth affirmations aid in this. They also can reduce birth fear and anxiety, help with focus, and lead to positive birth outcomes.
