The Science Behind Positive Birth Affirmations

What Are Positive Birth Affirmations?

An affirmation is a statement repeated mentally or out loud, which has the power to fully transform your mindset.

This is why Positive Birth Affirmations are such an incredible and effective way of creating a new belief system around childbirth, and a new found confidence in just how powerful your body really is.

The thing is though, you really have to feel into the affirmation as you say it, which is why it is so important for these positive birth affirmations to be repeated regularly.

You have to allow the truth behind each affirmation to manifest itself as a feeling, to really let yourself believe the message it’s portraying, and therefore rewrite any negative connotation of childbirth, which may be embedded deep into your subconscious mind.

The Conscious vs The Subconscious Mind

Picture your mind as an iceberg, our conscious mind is where our every day active thinking comes from, it is everything we are currently aware of, BUT this is actually just the very tip of the iceberg.

Our subconscious mind runs so much deeper and is a much more complex part of the brain. This is where our beliefs lie, it is where everything we learn is stored, a reservoir of thoughts, feelings and memories outside of our awareness.

Everything we have heard, seen or learnt about childbirth in the past is stored in our subconscious mind, which is where positive birth affirmations come into play. As we repeat, feel and believe these true statements, they begin to plant a new belief system into our subconscious mind, and create a whole new way of thinking.

This is why repetition is the key to positive birth affirmations, as this is how a new belief is formed.

Once we have these positive and empowering beliefs in our mind, we can cultivate a new, confident and calm approach to childbirth. Knowing just how incredible and powerful our bodies are.
