You might be wondering: what the hell are ‘affirmations’ and how on earth will they help me give birth to my baby?!
Allow me to enlighten you….
Put simply, affirmations are POSITIVE STATEMENTS used to EMPOWER you.
The power of positive thinking is well known in the sporting world. Most athletes and sports people use affirmations, along with visualisations, as part of their regular training routine. Likewise, in Hypnobirthing, positive statements, or affirmations, are a really powerful training tool.
Affirmations are always POSITIVE and PRESENT: we say them as if they are already true. Used in this way, they work by flooding our subconscious mind with positive and empowering statements about pregnancy, labour and birth, to help foster a ‘can do’ mindset and fill you with confidence: where my mind leads, my body follows.
I have carefully selected the affirmations in this pack for maximum impact. They may seem simple, but they are remarkably effective.
You can use them in any way that suits you. You don’t have to read or display all of the affirmations at once, but you can. If there is one affirmation you particularly like, you might choose to write it in your journal or diary so you notice it throughout the day, or pick one at random each morning.
In preparation for my recent home birth, I pegged a whole set along some string and hung them up in my living room.
