“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.” – Marcie Macari

What is a birth affirmation?
A birth affirmation is basically something a birthing mother can use to focus on during labor. They can give reassurance and comfort, be a reminder of personal goals, or give encouragement. It can be a tool to keep your head in a good place during labor. Many mamas hang their affirmations on the wall in their birthing space.
Why are birth affirmations helpful?
It’s a helpful point of mental focus or visualization during the challenging parts of labor. A lot of labor requires you to pull deep from within yourself. Reminders of your strength, the task at hand, can help your refocus when things get tough.
Beautiful imagery and encouraging words is something all women should be surrounded with during the labor and birth of their child.
