My only responsibility is to control my mind. My body will birth my baby safely and effectively.
My son's birth paved the way. My body has a wide open space for my baby to descend. There is nothing in the way.
My iron level is high. My hemoglobin is high. My plasma is in proportion to the number of red blood cells.
My body will give birth in it's own time.
I have a pleasurable and orgasmic birthing.
Giving birth is a highly creative act full of orgasmic feeling . . . a moment of ecstatic pleasure.

Birth is a supremely easy and natural occurrence for which my body has been perfectly designed.

There will be no complications.
Total serenity is my back-drop.
I believe in myself and I have nothing to fear.
I give birth in safety and solitude.
I do not fight the birth in any way. My body is totally relaxed. I am not afraid.
My body is meant to give birth efficiently, naturally, painlessly and without complications. Birth is a joyful event.
Mind is everything. We become what we believe.
Believing makes it happen.
Contractions are easy, relax.
I follow my instincts and give birth in the way I desire.
I am ready and prepared for this.
My job is to simply relax and allow the birth to happen.
I see myself handling everything beautifully.
I deserve this birth!
