Birth is a safe and wonderful experience..
I know my baby feels our calmness and confidence.
I trust in my ability to give birth.
My body knows exactly what it is doing.
I am confident in my ability to birth naturally, painlessly and easily.
During labour and birth, I am completely relaxed and comfortable.
I will have an uncomplicated, peaceful, joyous and pleasurable birth.
My baby is healthy.
I am completely cooperating with my body.
I will breathe deeply and slowly to relax my muscles making it easier for my uterus to work.
My body is made to give birth, nice and easy.
I believe my baby’s birth will come quickly and easily.
My body is completely relaxed.
All I need to do is relax and breathe – nothing else.
Everything is going right.
I feel the strong waves of labour and know that everything is normal and progressing.
I relax my mind and muscles.
My body knows how to have this baby just as my body knew how to grow this baby.
Keep breathing slow and even. Inhale peace, exhale tension.
Keep my mind on acceptance and surrender.
I surrender my birthing over to my baby and my body.
My body has a wide-open space for my baby to descend.
My body will give birth in its own time.
I love my baby and I am doing all that is necessary to bring about a healthy birth.
Birth is an easy and natural occurrence for which my body has been perfectly designed.
The strength of my uterine contractions is a sign of my feminine strength.
I surrender to the contractions and relinquish control of the forces within my body.
I allow my body’s natural anaesthesia to flow through my body.
The power and intensity of my contractions cannot be stronger than me, because it is me.
I am ready and prepared for childbirth.
My job is to simply relax and allow the birth to happen.
Just let my body do it; let it happen.
I see myself handling everything beautifully.
Each contraction produces a healthy, positive pain that I can handle.
Birth will go exactly as it should.
“It is not only that we want to bring about an easy labor, without risking injury to the mother or the child; we must go further. We must understand that childbirth is fundamentally a spiritual, as well as a physical, achievement. The birth of a child is the ultimate perfection of human love.”
