To help you enjoy those experiences, or let’s be more realistic, at least help you get through them more smoothly it’s crucial that you stay as “fit as possible mentally”. There are many ways to go about it and many tools that you can use. Positive affirmations are one of them.

What are affirmations?

Affirmations are simply positive, empowering statements or phrases that you can use to quiet your negative self-talk. They can help you with overthinking, self-sabotaging, and anxiety.

Why are affirmations powerful? Benefits of affirmations.

Hear me out. It’s not magic, it’s not wishful thinking. No one is asking you to stand in front of a mirror, unless you want to that is, and force yourself to say words you don’t believe in. However, fact is, that we’re constantly having thoughts in out minds. And For many people, that self-talk is rather negative. Affirmations can help you become more aware of the words you’re thinking and turn that limiting, negative self-talk into a more positive one. Which is so important during childbirth!

Why should you use birth affirmations?

You will have moments of doubt during labor and delivery, every woman does. It’s just such an intense experience and for many of us can take many hours.
The unknown, the pain, and the fatigue can all affect your mental well-being and your mindset. Yet, it’s crucial that you stay positive, hopeful, calm, mentally strong, and excited.
You have to keep going no matter what. To help you achieve that, it’s good to keep some positive phrases in mind that you can repeat to yourself in moments of doubt or fear.
Those can be about your body and its abilities, about your beauty and strength, or about the connection with your baby.
Below you’ll find a list of 50 birth affirmations that you can use during labor and delivery. Pick your favorite ones or customize them in a way that resonates with you the most. Good luck, mama, you got this!
