Positive Affirmations for Pregnancy and Birth

Spread the love

While pregnancy is a time of joy and excitement, there will be times that anxiety creeps in. Your thoughts will naturally go to some scary or dark places when feeling anxious. Rejecting these thoughts won’t make them go away. It’s similar to throwing dirt on a weed in your garden, you might not be able to see it anymore but it’s still there and most likely going to make it’s way back to the surface. So what do we do with these thoughts when they do come to the surface? You must first accept these thoughts and then replace them with positive affirmations for pregnancy and birth!

Anxious Thoughts are Normal

It’s normal to worry about whether or not your body is capable of growing this child or whether you will be a good mother. I can confidently say that most parents worry about whether or not they are ready for this baby or if their life can support this new addition. The scary thoughts are completely normal too, even worrying about losing your baby or dying during labor. You would be surprised to know how many women have the same thoughts while pregnant. Even so, having these darker thoughts creep into your mind can start to overwhelm you with fear.

It’s important to remember that just because you have a thought, that doesn’t mean it’s real or true. A lot of people, myself included, believe in manifestation. Manifestation is the belief that your thoughts can shape your reality. If you believe this, your negative thoughts about your pregnancy can become terrifying. You might believe you are bringing these worries into your reality. 

However, there is a difference between acknowledging your thoughts and believing them. The power of manifestation lies in the latter, believing these thoughts. You aren’t able to control where your thoughts go, so there is no point in trying to reject or ignore them. Accepting they exist is the first step in redirecting your thoughts. Once you can acknowledge the thought, try to find a powerful and positive thought to prevent you from feeding the negative thought. This is where positive affirmations for pregnancy and birth become beneficial.

How do Positive Affirmations Help?

Positive affirmations are statements or mantras that you repeat to help build confidence and positive thinking. Consider repeating these to yourself quietly, in your mind, or while looking into a mirror. Repeat these to yourself in any way that feels powerful to you. 

Consider telling your loved ones some of these positive affirmations as well so they can help remind you of them when you are in need. This can be especially helpful during labor and delivery. Make sure your support partner knows the language that will be the most empowering for you! 

Mindset is Everything

Repeating these positive affirmations daily can help push out the negative thoughts and worries that may come up in your mind. Whenever you feel your anxiety starting to creep in or catch yourself worrying, bring your mind back to your chosen affirmations. These statements will redirect your thoughts to a more empowering and healthy place!
