Today I bring to you birth affirmations. These affirmations are for soon-to-be mothers to help support themselves during the birthing process.

Birth affirmations are useful in helping you face the emotions and experience of giving birth and keeping a positive mindset regarding the birth process.

How to Use Birth Affirmations

  1. Speak them to yourself. You can use our Gratitude app to write them down, record your voice to it, and play them.
  2. Ask someone close to repeat them to you during contractions.
  3. Print and paste them on the walls in the hospital room.
