Buddha said "We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world."
This is very true and I think when we are pregnant we really need to train our brain to focus on the positive affirmations when we are pregnant.
Affirmations used before and during labor and birth can help build a woman’s confidence tremendously. Positive statements allow a woman to focus on what feels right for her, what is possible, and it kicks in the Law of Attraction in a huge way.
I see women who have so much self doubt arise because of ALL those discouraging words tossed around when it comes to birth experiences, personal opinions and sometimes even the well intentioned but misinformed suggestions of our caregivers, family, friends, and the media.
Here is a beautiful video with some lovely affirmations that you can focus on. I encourage you to create some affirmations of your own that you and your partner can refer to prenatally and during labor.
