RETHINK BIRTH | Here is day 1 of our RETHINK BIRTH challenge. This week Hypnobumps will be providing you with a positive affirmation, related to YOUR birth, YOUR body and YOUR mind.
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.
Each time you look at the affirmation, take a moment and connect with your body and your baby.
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).
If you have any questions or would like any further information, please drop us a message below or get in touch with Hypnobumps directly.
Hypnobirthing | What is it? Hypnobirthing involves using a mixture of visualisation, relaxation and deep breathing techniques during labour and birth.
This week we will be giving you several positive affirmations related to YOUR mindset, YOUR birth and YOUR body from Hypnobumps – a qualified practicing midwife and a KG Hypnobirthing Teacher.
Please use each positive affirmation as an extra tool to support YOUR visualisation of YOUR birth. Why?…because the best way to create detail and enhance the quality of your visualisation is to picture and describe the affirmation using all of your senses. Try to keep adding in more detail.
Each positive affirmation will help you by encouraging positive thinking and giving you a fresh start on how to RETHINK BIRTH.

I am passionate about all of my roles but especially excited to teach new and existing parents the path to a empowering, calm and confident birth journey whatever shape or form it may take.
I worked in the NHS for 15 years as a Clinical Scientist, specialising in microbiology, and have seen first-hand how important it is to seek medical advice when it is necessary, and knowing the right time to do this, and when a little bit of first aid goes a long way. As a mum to a teenage son who has not known the meaning of danger since he was born, plays rugby, and any other sport he can get involved in, and a daughter who is a keen gymnast and dancer, I have personal experience of a wide variety of first aid emergencies, from cuts and grazes to broken bones!
Daisy First Aid runs 2-hour classes which are fun and relaxed. They are aimed at parents, parents-to-be, grandparents, carers, or anyone spending time in the company of children. They are designed to give everyone the knowledge and confidence to deal with emergency situations quickly and calmly. The classes cover recovery positions, CPR and choking for adults, children and babies, as well as febrile seizures, bleeding, burns, anaphylaxis, meningitis, fractures, poisoning and head injuries.
