RETHINK BIRTH CHALLENGE | WEEK 2 AND DAY 2 | This week Hypnobumps will be providing you with a positive affirmation, related to labour and surges.
Contractions usually last for about 1 minute when you are in active labour. Yes they can be incredibly intense and strong but it IS JUST ONE MINUTE. Then there will be a break before the next one starts. Break each minute down and take each 1 minute contraction at a time. YOU can do anything for a minute!
Feel free to print them or to put up around your home. In doing so, you’ll be creating a positive and inspirational environment for you to enjoy your pregnancy in.
The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, originally meaning “to make steady, strengthen.” Did you know that self-affirmation has been demonstrated to lower stress and rumination (Koole et al., 1999; Weisenfeld et al., 2001).
