How to use birth affirmations
Alright, so you have chosen a few of the affirmations above, now what?
A clear, concise mind is where any great thing begins. Release any tension, resentment, or anger you have continued to cling to from experiencing a peaceful mind. Affirmations work when you are willing to put your side of the work into anything. You can start by repeating these birth affirmations in your child’s nursery, out on a walk, while nesting, before bed, at your doctor appointments, and of course, during childbirth. This day will come with a lot of emotions from so many parties.
These affirmations are needed to hold onto during any pain or stress that begins to rise within you. Nobody can know for sure how this day will go from the moment you begin to feel contractions or a trickle of water alerting you that it’s baby time.
Begin this process during the early stages of pregnancy. Place this within your routines throughout the day. You can start with as small as 3 minutes of repeating your customized affirmations. Do this within any free time while managing miscellaneous tasks to showering in the morning. If you need to remember to do this daily, set the alarm when you know you will be free. You must be consistent with something essential to receive great beliefs behind them.
Use correct verbiage to speak life into what you want to believe and come to fruition. Such as “I am,” “I will,” “My body is,” and “I trust,” all are statements of what you will release to come back to take place. And even when thinking about all the what-ifs that come with having your firstborn to your lastborn. Below are some affirmation quotes to speak over yourself in the delivery room.
Your affirmations will work since they are customized to your feelings and needs. These affirmations are even more for the days when you feel lost and confused about the new stage of life you are entering. Encouraging words you have set aside to repeat to yourself about this coming season can uplift you out of any funk. Positive thoughts don’t come naturally for all of us. However, affirmations that we have intentionally included can change this.
