I did this last night and it was really good. it enabled me to re frame the narrative.
Louise Jenkins
30:01
I have begun adding my own to the ones I have from reading....'I am stronger than I think' has been a focus I have used in running and now saying in this to reframe how I see my mind and body.
Lucy Lobo
30:17
Should the affirmations just be in response to our fears or can they also be for what out positive thoughts are
Ellie Smith

Emily Williams

good question. I just did stuff I needed reminding of. 2 strength ones and 1 think I’m less confident of it I’m nit sure if that’s right
Monica

sry by mistake
Hayden Branson
36:33
does that include mental health?
Ana Penalver
50:52
I've got my 4 affirmations ready ;) When would you recommend I say those to myself? I thought while I'm breathing out (they are the perfect length!), but I wonder if my mind is gonna be too busy focusing on breathing out and "managing pain" at that time. Thanks!

hello mush,
Ramya Barry
57:25
its a lovely session
Chiara & Stewart K
58:22
other than Lavender what aromatherapy oils would you recommend in labour? Thanks
Catherine
58:37
Very sorry I joined late, very quick one: what is a good start to find affirmations that I might like, I have never really used affirmations in my life.

Totally agree on getting your partner to record a Hypnobirthing relaxation and affirmations track. My husband did this this week and I love listening to it to sleep—haven’t sleep this good in weeks! I know it will relax me if he can’t be there.
Lucy Lobo
59:25
My friend had her affirmations written out and put around the room
Ramya Barry
01:00:10
could you please tell what all precautions do we need to take during the stay in hospital,
hannahray
01:00:10
Thank you so much this has been amazing!! How do you suggest dealing with very well-meaning family giving negative responses towards your birth preferences. I have two older sisters and my mother with strong opinions about birth venue etc. I was feeling really positive about preparing for our home birth but I feel like they are putting their fears on me. How do you recommend dealing with this?
Amy Milner
01:00:34
my internet died sorry please could you tell me how I can get access to this after so I can see the bits I missed
Chiara & Stewart K
01:01:18
I heard an affirmation I loved : my contractions can not be bigger than me because they are FROM me ❣️
Louise Jenkins
01:06:29
Thank you so much for this calming and safe space. I love having the opportunity to be among strong women going through similar journeys, even if virtually!
Reshma Hirani
01:07:04
what if you don't know if you have covid 19 systems but no symptoms?
