What is an affirmation?
It is a form of emotional support or encouragement, with some referring to it as a daily prayer with the hope of a positive outcome.
Affirmations can be helpful in lessening anxiety and fears by shifting negative thoughts to positive ones.
The way you think about yourself and your developing pregnancy have a great impact on you, your relationships, and your baby.
Your baby can feel what you are feeling, so it is important to make positive affirmations a part of your day.
There are times when pregnancy fears will creep in. And when they do, take some time to calm yourself and repeat an affirmation up to 3 times. Let the words soak into your entire being and become the affirmation.
Reaffirm yourself that you are a wonderful person and that you are meant to be the mother of the child in your womb.
