A lot of people told me positive affirmations helped to prepare them for childbirth. I’m going to try it. I think it’s great. I am all about the meditation, and doing everything I possibly can to prepare for this very important day.

I read the book HYPNOBIRTHING, to help me master meditation and affirmations for birth. That book is the best!

Here is the list of positive affirmations I made before and during labour.

  2. I radiate joy.
  3. I know what I am doing and where I am going.
  4. I can let go.
