All About Birth Affirmations

You’ve got this.  Your body was made to do this.  Every contraction is bringing your baby closer to your arms.

Affirmations may seem silly or embarrassing when you don’t need them, but when you are in the heat of the moment and feel like you can’t go on they can be the most powerful words in the world.

Many Doulas will recommend that you find birth affirmations that resonate with you to give you strength and encouragement during labour.  They may be on papers taped to the wall for you to look at during contractions or they may be given to your Doula and birth partner to be said to you when they think you need the help.

As Doulas we have seen first hand how incredibly helpful birth affirmations can be but we also know how hard it can be to add something else to your To-Do list before baby comes.  So we wanted to make it easy for you and compile some of our favourites to post as a gift to you.
