FREE Printable Birth Affirmations

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.

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

  2. teresa.leighton@hotmail.com' Teresa says:

    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 says:

      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

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

  4. rosa_layne_miller@yahoo.com' Rosa MIller says:

    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 says:

      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_layne_miller@yahoo.com' Rosa MIller says:

        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.

  5. alexis.opos@gmail.com' Lexyopo says:

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

  6. ethurston26@gmail.com' Emily Thurston says:

  7. elizabethcharlottegrant@gmail.com' Liz Grant says:

    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. 🙂

  8. gretadromgool@gmail.com' Greta Dromgool says:

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

  9. lolaburns@hotmail.co.uk' Fox 93 says:

    These are AWESOME. Thank you so much for sharing them. Will definitely be using them in these last few weeks x

  10. ebrowncanada.1@hotmail.com' Elizabeth Brown says:

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! These are wonderful. I was able to print these in 4×6 size, punch a hole in them and put them on a key ring. Now my daughter can read them with ease when she goes into labour! Again, thank you so very much!

If you're preparing for a positive birth experience, it's SO important to choose a wonderful, positive, informative birth education program to help you fully understand birth and mentally prepare yourself and your partner for labour, birth and parenthood.

HypnoBirthing is a full birth education program, which explains exactly what happens with your body and baby during labour and birth. Knowing this will allow you to work with your labour, and often love the experience, rather than just enduring it. HypnoBirthing is a full, holistic birth education program which runs as one 2.5 hour class a week for 5 weeks.


What is HypnoBirthing®?

HypnoBirthing® is a full childbirth education course and so much more.

Throughout the course, we discuss what your body will be doing during labour and birth and why. We talk about what your baby will be doing during labour and birth and why. The course explains how to work with your body’s birthing process and natural expulsive reflex, to allow your body to do what it was designed to do and does so well. It teaches anatomy, breathing techniques, how different positions, interventions and situations help or hinder the labour and birth process.

It teaches your partner about birth and gives them confidence and tips (and even a cheat sheet!) on how to best support you.

It teaches the history of birth and the medical system.

It explains how fear and stress affects your body’s ability to birth and also affects your baby’s oxygen supply. It’s important to face your fears and work through them and release them, so they don’t become an issue during your labour and birth. HypnoBirthing® helps you do this.

It discusses breastfeeding, care providers, water births, hospital births, home births, cord clamping, scans tests and your options… it goes over SO much over the space of 5 weeks.

But the biggest thing you’ll notice isn’t the specifics of what it teaches. The biggest thing that you’ll notice is what all this information changes your mindset about birth. HypnoBirthing® helps you get back to your instincts. By the end of the course, you will notice that you will be feeling SO much more confident. SO much more informed. And SO much more excited about your upcoming birth than you ever thought possible. It will really ignite a passion inside you, that you may have never realised you had.

And that’s something that you will take with you throughout the rest of your pregnancy, your birth, your post partum period, parenthood, and the rest of your life.


Private classes are also available to be booked any time and can also be booked by clicking the link above.
