Affirmations for Pregnancy, Labour and Birth

Affirmations work well if we already, in this moment “feel” the truth of what we want to happen or achieve.

When you create your own “mantra”, make sure it is phrased as a positive statement and in the present tense.

Repeat often, especially upon waking and just as dropping off to sleep.

Here are some examples you could use or you can make up your own that resonate with your needs and are easy for you to remember. Try to stick with the same one and repeat often to make it stick in your subconscious mind.

I currently sell packs of beautifully illustrated Pregnancy Affirmation Cards below retail price for £15. Each pack consists of 52 cards. Please ask me in class if you’d like to purchase one.
