Anyone using Hypnobirthing/birth affirmations as a technique? Thought it would be nice to have a thread of nice positive things so feel free to add your affirmations below!

Also, seeing as grown up 'colouring' has become a bit of a trend for relaxation etc, I came across a birth affirmations colouring book (!) you can check it out here: the-art-of-birth.zibbet.com/

Here's my first:

I trust that my body knows exactly what it’s doing.

Each contraction brings me closer to my baby smile

I did but on the third cycle of the cd in labor I did threaten to decapitate dh with it if he put it on again blush Mind you still not sure if it was the cd or his mithering that tipped me over the edge.

You can do anything for 2 minutes
I rotate to dilate
Relax the jaw to relax the pelvic floor
Inhale, exhale
I trust birth

Mine was each contraction brings me closer to meeting my DD
I can do this
My body knows what it is doing
Stay calm, the calmer I am the quicker this will progress
