Birth Affirmation Cards
Birth Affirmations are phrases or statements that are designed to help you maintain the mindset that you want during the birthing process.
I handwrote birth affirmations (different ones for each pregnancy) and posted them around my bathroom mirror. Each day, as I brushed my teeth, I would read them. There were 3-4 affirmations that anchored and held me through birth and labour (and they were different for each birth).
I've written these affirmations alternating between narratives e.g. "our baby" or "my baby", so that you can print the ones that most resonate with you. I have also used familiar hypnobirthing language like surge, rather than contraction.
These also make an amazing (and affordable) gift.
