You are growing your beautiful baby and it’s tough.
Those 9 months, 40 weeks counting down till you meet your gorgeous baby.
You’ll be given so much advice and people will tell you their stories, some will be negative and some positive.
It’s important to remind yourself that you don’t have to hear the negative.
Birth can be a beautiful empowering experience. Birth can take a route which you didn’t plan for.
What you need to remember though is that you are strong, you are capable and you can birth your baby is whatever direction birth takes.
Your body is strong and you can do it.
The calmer, more positive and more focused you are the more you will relax during birth.
Remember to breathe, how you breathe will help you too. Focus on positive birth stories, focus on what will keep you calm and focus on how you would like your birth to be.
Mama, remember you are strong, you have got this and you can do it! Your body is amazing and it will help you birth your baby if you let it.
