I pray every day to have a healthy baby born vaginally at home. When I'm feeling a doubt creeping in, I say something along the lines of "I will push this baby out through my vagina" or something along those lines. I do a lot of visualization, too, in different rooms in my house since I'm planning a homebirth.

Women don't need doctors' permission to use their own vagina.

I told myself lots of affirmations last time:

I can do this
I am strong
My body was made for this
My body knows what to do
My birth will be wonderful
My uterus is strong

Stuff like that really helped me

I kept reminding myself that I was made to do this, my 2 previous cesareans were not my body failing me, but the doctors failing me.

"I birth easily and with joy" and I have the photos of myself grinning like an maniac at 7 cms dilated, waiting for the star of the party to arrive.

Because I worry I will try tto birth with my brain instead of my body, my mantra is SURRENDER. I need to surrender to this process and allow my body to do the work it knows how to do.

Vaginal birth is the default setting.
Even comatose women have vaginal births & so can I.
Relax and surrender to the process.
90% of the time everything goes just fine & I'm annoyingly normal

"my body knows what to do, my baby knows what to do"

I had a client who repeated this mantra for hours! And she was right, of course!

You can do this and you will! best wishes for a powerful and strong birth!
