Birth Affirmations Help Reduce Stress and Build Confidence
Your mind is your most powerful organ. By feeding it with positive reinforcements, so-called birth affirmations, you will guide your body into doing amazing things.
For many women, giving birth will most likely be the most amazing experience and yet, it brings about many fears and anxiety. In reality though, it is a natural and even simple process as long as you prepare and train for it.
Why the fear? Because we tend to focus on the negative even though we are fully aware that this is not healthy.
Negative thinking produces stress which is unhealthy for both you and your baby. Studies of stress in the womb has been connected to an increased risk of pre-term labor, low birth weight, intrauterine infections as well as have negative effects on the baby’s temperament, depression and neurobehavioral development later in life. And that’s just a few examples, but it’s enough, right?
Since you want a healthy and stress-free pregnancy and birth, I highly suggest to only concentrate on the positive from now on. Ready? Go!
