The birth culture currently in the United States is one of fear and anxiety. Women’s power has been taken from them by the “technocratic” birth model. Birthwell Los Angeles seeks to change this paradigm into one where women feel confident and trust their bodies to grow healthy babies and discover that gentle birth is possible.Using these daily affirmation cards will encourage the pregnant mama to foster a fearless attitude about her pregnancy and birth. She will learn to trust her body and the natural process of childbirth.A sampling of the affirmations:
My baby is born in pure pleasure.
What if something goes right?
My body is nourishing my baby perfectly.
So many women before me have given birth and in that energy I trust
myself in body & spirit to birth.
My belly is full of light and love.
I am deserving of an easy, uncomplicated birth.
My baby senses the peace I feel.
I am surrounded by those who love and support me.
