Along with music and the support of my husband and our doula, birth affirmations were incredibly helpful during both of my labors. They’re a great way to infuse positive self-talk into your delivery journey. 

Below are 11 of our team’s favorite labor affirmations. Whisper them, scream them, sing them, repeat them over and over in your head -- every little bit of positivity helps.

Download these affirmations, share them, and print your favorites to bring with you to the hospital as a reminder that you can handle everything that comes your way, starting with that first contraction.
