Affirmations to Support a Natural Birth

Affirmations are just one small thing you can incorporate during your pregnancy, labor, and birth to support you mentally and energetically during this miraculous process. All things going in your favor count, so let’s take advantage of seeding our minds with beautiful words that remind us of our capabilities, power, and body intelligence.

I suggest you read through each one and go over them a second time (at least) more slowly to really integrate this wisdom into your being. Speak them aloud in a soft tone during your nightly bath ritual. Perhaps you’ll find that your energy will shift, be more uplifted, have more faith, and you’ll resonate with these truths you speak of.

Every single choice you make during pregnancy builds (or take away from) the confidence you have in yourself as a woman with the greatest job on earth. Do not take this on as pressure, but as seriously high levels of empowerment instead!

You wouldn’t have been given this opportunity if you weren’t able to do it! Your body is capable. You’ve been given a gift and can see it through naturally. TRUST THE UNIVERSE.
