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 🙂
