Birth affirmations are positive statements designed to inspire your mind or change your way of thinking to help you maintain a positive attitude or mood regarding your pregnancy and birth process. Affirmations are easy to use throughout pregnancy and birth. The sooner you start the better as repetition is the key!

Birth affirmations can help reduce anxiety, increase confidence, and promote relaxation. They are used to help women stay positive and focused during labor and delivery. By repeating positive statements, women can change their mindset and create a more empowering and fulfilling birth experience.

Birth affirmations are a positive coping mechanism used during childbirth to help women stay focused and calm. Some examples of birth affirmations include "my body knows how to birth my baby" or "I trust my instincts and my ability to give birth." These affirmations can be repeated out loud or silently to oneself during labor and delivery.
