Affirmation Monday #11

"Just as a woman's heart knows how & when to pump, her lungs to inhale, and her hand to pull back from fire, so she knows when & how to give birth"

 

Our bodies are incredible. That is one thing I'm certain of! Not only do our bodies do amazing things every day (like keep us alive) that we may take for granted, but they're capable of creating another entire person. 

We have the ability to make, grow, birth, and feed a baby (all while staying in bed if we want to!). Am I the only one who thinks this is bananas?! 

We can get pregnant and do absolutely nothing (though it always helps if we treat our bodies kindly), and a baby will grow and come out of it.

I've read before that if a woman somehow becomes unconscious while she is in labour, her body will still push the baby out. The uterus is THAT strong! It knows what to do, we just give it some help.

Your body knows exactly how to give birth, and it knows when as well. When things get overwhelming or scary, and you think you won't be able to do it, it's best to just trust in the process. You got this, mama.
