Feeling positive in pregnancy is so important as it can have a huge impact on your hormones!
Here a few ways to increase positive vives and therefore all of the good hormones that we want during pregnancy and labour!
Cut out all TV and films and watch comedies and romance instead! (I took the opportunity to watch Ab Fab for the first time!)
Watch and read LOTS of positive births and tell people you don’t want to hear their negative ones! Spend your time looking at all different types of positive birth so that you can see how women and birth partners had a positive birth experience
Make sure that you take time out to relax and do something that you enjoy whether that’s having a hot bubble bath or reading a book
Go for a pregnancy massage! I went to lovely Massage Ewe based in Harrogate when I was pregnant and felt so much more calm and relaxed afterwards
Invest in hypnobirthing! You learn so much about relaxation whether that’s through hypnosis, positive affirmations and visualizations or just generally feeling more prepared for birth
Don’t tell everyone your due date! This immediately puts a timer on your pregnancy and the closer you get.. the more people tend to ask questions. Just say ‘around the month of..’
If you’ve got any more, let me know. I’d love to hear them. Positive vibes are the best!
