Now. Onto the important stuff.

I really feel that positive visualizations and affirmations are going to be a tremendous asset during labor. I wanted to assemble a large list of affirmations to read while in labor (or to have Sam read them to me).

I trust my body

My body was made for this

I listen to my body and I respond accordingly

I wait on my body to direct my next breath, my next surge, my next release of breath, my next inhale.

I am connected to my infant; my baby knows my heart beat, my breathing, my voice, the feeling of my love.

My body is perfect for birthing, it grew my baby all the while I just went about my normal living.

I trust it’s wisdom and knowledge.

I trust it’s ancient structure, and I give birth easily and effortlessly as I trust my body to do the work.

I am celebrating myself, my life and my coming birthing day

I see myself in perfect health

I affirm myself as a good mother

I am meeting my daily energy needs, I exercise regularly, I sleep and rest, I take in good foods and plenty of water

I am accepting my birth, my body as it is, myself as a new mother

I take care with comments from others, and recognize even well wishers can inadvertently give me suggestions that might diminish my belief in myself. I take myself away from these people quickly and easily.

I learn the greatest “pattern interruption” that I have is my blessed need to use the ladies room, and I use it whenever a situation is not to my liking.

I lovingly accept my changing body

I easily recognize where stress is coming from and I learn to release that easily.

I use proper foods in good proportion that is just right for nurting this new life inside me.

I accpet that others may not be as focused as I am on the baby, and I release any concerns about what others are doing and I choose to take care of myself first.

I notice when I get tense, and I consciously relax those areas of my body.

I start with relaxing my shoulders, and breathing all the way down “to my toes”.

I remind myself to relax my whole body often.

When ever I feel tension in my back, I breathe into it, and relax.

I relax each muscle …one at a time.

My body is beautiful, I have a loving and caring team of professionals around me through my pregnancy and birth

My body is growing a new life inside

I am proud of my body and I  trust it.

I trust it to add all the toes and fingers and to choose the right eye colour and hair, and to make a strong heart, and lungs and body. All I have to do, is continue to breathe and my body will do all the rest!

I accept each stage of the pregancy as a new wonderful adventure.

I accept each stage of the birh as a new wonderful adventure

I accept all the states of motherhood as this same wonderful adventure

I love myself, I accept myself, just the way I am.

As I prepare for labour I remember I am in control

I trust my body, I love my body! It’s just amazing! I am an amazing being.

I wait on what is best for my baby and I let my baby set the pace

My mind and body are calm
