Affirmations can be so empowering.
My body knows how to birth my baby.
My baby knows how to be born.
I relax and fully turn my birthing over to nature.
I am safe even though I may be scared.
I put all fear aside and welcome my baby with happiness and joy.
A woman’s body was designed to give birth. Our incredible womb and cervix have super powers to perform a seemingly impossible task. Thousands of babies are born every day without the use of interventions. And this has been going on since the beginning of time. If I could share only one bit of advice to a mother to be, it would be to trust your body.
Trust that when you are in labor your body will know what to do. Just know that if you are healthy and supported with love, nature will be your auto pilot. Set your fears aside.
I trust my body to know what it is to do. I am a wonderful mother.
One of my midwives wrote these affirmations down for me when I was expecting my third child. I was preparing for a VBAC at home and I too needed to be reminded of what we as women were made to accomplish. We create life.
Midwives support birthing naturally. If you are pregnant and would like to know more about choosing a midwife, here is a link for you. http://mana.org/memberlist.html
