Today I was looking at various cool things on Etsy and came across a neat “birth warrior” bracelet. She also gives the following affirmation and I LOVE it:
Birth Warrior’s Affirmation
I am a birth warrior
I embrace my strength
I embrace my power
I surrender to my body’s wisdom
and bring forth life in joy…
I’m going to a mother blessing this weekend and would like to add this to the affirmation poster we are making for the mother (I hope she doesn’t read this blog first!). I know that there are some people who not identify with the “birth warrior” mindset/coping practices, but for me personally, it is very apt and is what felt true and right for me—power and strength instead of calmness, relaxation, and control.
