Birth affirmations can help you physically, mentally, and emotionally prepare for birth, even if you have birthed before. They can also help you through your birth and even assist you in the days immediately following the process.
As a doula, I’m here to let you know what we are here to support you during this. We are here to hold space/actively listen, find resources for you to help you prepare, & answer any questions you may have about procedure.
For folks who had their birth plans down to a science and moved from a vaginal birth to a c-section, I’ll offer some affirmations for you:
My body and baby are doing exactly what they are supposed to do.
My baby may be doing somersaults upside down & they are healthy.
I go with the flow even as my plans shift.
My c-section will be a positive experience.
My body will heal beautifully after this surgery.
My womb is perfect & divine.
My womb will heal beautifully after this surgery.
Let me know what you think about these affirmations. Do you have any of your own? Share your c-section experience with us below. Be blessed!
