Would you like some FREE printable birth affirmations? Well, I have good news!

My wonderful friend Sashi is a graphic designer and has created some beautiful birth affirmations for her upcoming birth… and she thought it would be lovely to share them all with all the other Mum’s out there who are looking for birth affirmations for their upcoming births too! How wonderful is this lady?! 🙂

Just scroll down and click the “download” button to download them and print them out however you like!

If you’re wondering why somebody would want birth affirmations, let me answer that question for you too…

It’s so important to be in the right frame of mind when labouring and birthing.

Thinking positively, rather than doubting yourself has such a huge impact, as your body reacts to what your mind is thinking.

If you think that you can’t do it, your body will tense up and you will be working against tense muscles, which isn’t what you want to be doing while contractions are trying to gently move those muscles and open your cervix to allow baby out.

But if you’re relaxed and thinking positively, it will help your body work as it should… gently pulling those muscles on your uterus up, moving baby into a good position, opening your cervix and allowing space for baby to come out.

That’s birth 🙂

Something that you can do to help keep your mind in this beautiful, happy, positive place as you labour, is have birth affirmations up around the room for you to look at while you labour and birth. You can even put them around your home in the leadup to your birth so you see them every day! You’ll get to know them by heart, so that you don’t necessarily need to look at them while in labour to remember them. By the time you’ve walked past them or looked at them 100 times in your daily routine, it will become second nature to think these thoughts… making one less thing you have to think about on the big day.

So without further ado… here’s 23 FREE printable birth affirmations which you are welcome to download, save, print, share with friends… whatever you like! (These affirmations have been created as a gift to pregnant mothers, so please only use them for personal use).

I would LOVE to see how these are used in births around the world! If you’re on social media, please consider taking a pic of your affirmations all set up in your home or birth space and share it on my Facebook page, or hashtag #trustbreathebirth on Instagram! It would seriously make my day 🙂

The file is 10.8mb, so if it doesn’t download straight away, just give it a minute 😉

If the download button isn’t showing up, click here to download the affirmations.

Enjoy!

  • Gretchen

    I’m printing and gifting your printables to a friend tomorrow – they’re sooooo beautiful!

    • Janelle

      What a thoughtful gift! <3

  • Teresa

    I LOVE these and plan to use them for my VBAC this spring. Is there anyway that you could offer them in a 5×7 size? It would be much easier for me to print, if at all possible.

    • Janelle

      Hi Teresa! You should be able to save them and print them out whatever size you like. There might be a slight border around the edges for some sizes if you’re printing on a different shaped paper, but you can cut the edges off if needed 🙂 Let me know if you have any problems 🙂 xx

  • Kimberly Perry Roeder

    Thank you so much for these! Exactly what I was looking for:)

    • Janelle

      No problem at all! I’m so glad you like them Kimberly! xx

  • Rosa MIller

    Not sure what is going wrong but I’ve tried printing these 4 times and they aren’t printing right. Is there any way you can email the pictures to me. I’ve tried saving them then printing, I’ve tried just printing directly for your download link. They print part of the background but the words aremissing or vise versa. rosa_layne_miller@yahoo.com

    • Janelle

      Oh how weird! I’ve just tried printing them too and it’s coming up with an issue for me as well. I’ve just spent an hour trying to figure out what’s going on but I can’t work it out, so I’ve asked my website technician and he’s going to have a look and let me know asap. It must’ve happened overnight because it was working yesterday. How frustrating! I’ll comment here so you know when it’s fixed. Sorry for the hassle! xx

      • Rosa MIller

        No worries. I finally got it to work by clicking on each idividual image and saving it to my desk top. A few extra steps but well worth it. Thank you for making these.

  • Lexyopo

    Thank you so much, I printed these and will TOTALLY be using them for my birth in California! 🙂

  • Emily Thurston

    Thank you tons, these are such a beautiful inspiration!! Exactly what I was looking for 🙂

  • Liz Grant

    These are absolutely gorgeous! I’m a birth doula, and I’m thinking of compiling a blog post of birth affirmations – would it be alright if I linked to your site? (My site is http://JubileeDoula.com) These are just phenomenal! Thanks. 🙂

    • Janelle

      That would be wonderful Liz! What a great idea!

  • Greta Dromgool

    Thank you for sharing these. They were used for the home birth of my daughter last Monday.

    • Janelle

      Oh how special!!! That’s just made my day 🙂 If you have any photos, feel free to share them with me at janelle@trustbreathebirth.com.au – I’d love to see them! Congratulations on your baby girl! xxxxx

Did you know that you get 8 relaxation tracks to take home with you when you enrol in my HypnoMothering class that's on this Sunday?

The relaxation tracks are specifically designed to help Mum's with issues such as sleep and anxiety. I've been listening to them tonight. They are absolutely beautiful!

What is HypnoMothering?

HypnoMothering is a fun, practical, 2.5 hour class which teaches techniques to help deal with the challenges that new Mums face & help ease the transition into motherhood.

Rather than focusing on "parenting advice" for baby, this class instead discusses things that Mum's deal with themselves, and it offers resources and techniques to help you in those situations (Mum guilt, exhaustion, judgement, etc).

It's a class which is designed by Mum's, for Mums.

Some of the topics and techniques covered in HypnoMothering include:

- Hypnotherapy and other techniques for anxiousness & sleep issues.

- Tips and techniques to guide new mothers through a gentle transition into motherhood.

- Discussions and techniques to Empower new mothers to embrace their own unique journey free from outside expectations or judgment.

- How to make the most of limited sleep or broken sleep cycles

- How to stay calm and centred through stressful situations

- How to develop your maternal instincts

- A safe place for mothers to find focus and clarity amidst the myriad of feelings and challenges that come with motherhood

HypnoMothering is a stand alone class that meshes in well with the HypnoBirthing course, however it can be done by any pregnant Mum or new Mum, regardless of if you have done the HypnoBirthing course or not.

If you'd like to join me, you can enrol directly from my website here: www.trustbreathebirth.com.au/hypnobirthing/enrol-in-a-class/

Or if you would like to chat more about any of my classes, feel free to pm me. I'm always happy to answer questions! :)

I'll include links in the comments of this post, to the Facebook events I've made for each class. Feel free to share them with your friends if you know of anyone who you feel would benefit from this workshop! xx
