We grow up hearing birth stories and so many of them are not positive. The moment you tell someone you are pregnant, they share a birth story. These stories shape our view of birth, often negatively. A big part of preparing for birth is redefining perceptions. Affirmations are one tool we can use to reset our perceptions around birth.
Most of us use affirmations in our daily life, though not always intentionally or positively. We often say or think negative or limiting thoughts, especially about birth. For instance, “I’m sure something is going to go wrong.”; “We don’t know what we are doing.”; “I’ll probably end up with a c-section.” etc.
The goal of setting intentional, positive affirmations is to reinforce your vision for your birth and mitigate negative thoughts. They are part of the internal work we can do to prepare for a powerful birth. They are an opportunity to build your internal connections and show yourself (and your baby) loving support.
Affirmations do not guarantee that you will have a specific type of birth, but they are helpful in shifting mindsets to ones of empowerment and love, instead of fear.

Good day to everyone reading this! I am Martha Stewart from Blue Ridge, Georgia, and I want to write a testimony on this website about how I was helped through infertility with spell casting. My journey was not an easy one being unable to get pregnant until I came across this email firstname.lastname@example.org about how it has saved most marriages from the brink of divorce due to infertility. My husband and I do engage in outdoor activities by the countryside and seeing other families enjoy and have fun with their kids wasn't an easy task for me and I felt lost. We did have therapy sections having to cope with endometriosis stage 4. Almost giving up hope as a woman of 54 years, I decided to give it a try and see if it can be good to be true and alas it is a wonderful experience. I am a mother of twins today, a boy and a girl and I write this with a bundle of joy in my heart. I believe there are many women looking for opportunities on how to get fertile with most infertility blogs but I came to see that only Dr. Odunga can solve any problem with his fast and reliable work.
