Quotes have supported and inspired me all my life; from writing in my diaries and planners to viewing them on my computer and iPhone, they have really helped me make the biggest changes in my life. When I was in the last trimester of my first pregnancy I could definitely feel the life change coming and during that time birth quotes and pregnancy quotes were strewn all over my personal items as I got closer to my due date.
For me, quotes and affirmations are an act of self-care and mental well-being – especially in times of high stress and worries. I know I am not the only one telling you that if you have never given birth before and your due date is constantly coming your way, you are starting to stress your mind!
From worrying about your birth plan, the hospital, the family, the nursery, and your health … it can feel like it’s all coming at you and maybe, like me, you feel burned out! (Not to mention that a HUMAN is growing in you too!) That’s why I’ve put together a list of my favorite birth quotes that have personally helped me through this stressful time and I hope to be able to help you!
