"With every day that goes by I feel more and more confidant about my pregnancy....more and more comfortable about my body and my baby. More and more ready for my baby's wonderful birthing."
“I get to have a voice. It is safe for me to verbalize my feelings and desires. I am willing to allow others to give me what I want. I can say "no" and still be respected. I take full ownership of my pregnancy and the birth of my baby.”
“Other people's negative feelings belong only to them and I keep them away from me at all times. I easily stop negativity and protect myself and my baby. It's good for me to take care of myself.”

As my pregnancy progresses I find myself coming up on 7 months. I have been lucky in that I have had a relatively easy pregnancy and I hope to have as easy a birth as I did with Chico. Something I am doing to ensure this is delving into my Hypnobabies curriculum. I used Hypnobabies with Chico and It was incredibly helpful and empowering. I know without question that it helped me give birth quickly (active labor was only a few hours - pushed for 20 min) and med-free. Hypnobabies is a very successful, complete childbirth education course that was adapted with permission from Gerald Kein’s “Painless Childbirth Program” techniques rather than using simple relaxation, breathing or guided imagery.
I am in a few online pregnancy groups and hear so many women sharing how scared they are to labor and give birth. I feel badly for anyone who feels this way because the worry and fear is so unnecessary! I listen to positive pregnancy affirmations every day and thought I would start sharing a positive affirmation daily in hopes that it might help someone who is scared and feeling unsure about their pregnancy and impending birth.
Nothing crazy, nothing fancy - just words that reassure me every single day that my body is made to do this! I hope it helps you in your beautiful pregnancy journey! 📷: AlightArt
