Affirmations

God designed my body for birth, all I need to do is trust and it will happen.

My baby knows when to come into the world.

Pressure I feel at my incision is not a reason to worry, just a reminder that I am a mother.

I can birth my baby.

I can breastfeed my baby.

I am strong and powerful, I can do this.

Right now my body is getting ready for birth, I will trust and listen to it.

I believe you can. I firmly believe that putting your mind to it and learning how to work with your body are all you need to do to achieve the natural birth you want. You are right, your body is capable of doing this! It already knows what yo do. All you have to do is keep your determination stong. I believe in you, Steph. And I believe in the power of a woman's body.

Have you ever thought about trying hyponobirth stuff? I've had a few friends do it after really rough previous deliveries and it worked great for them the next time around when they used it. Just a thought...?
