Labor is both a beautiful and powerful experience for women. Whether it’s a natural birth, c-section, medicated birth, etc. They are all beautiful and powerful.
I have had the wonderful experience of birthing two little boys – James and Jaxson.
My Experience with Labor
Both pregnancies had to be induced but they differed in so many ways.
My first born’s pregnancy was very uneventful, I had zero pregnancy symptoms (which scared me daily). I went in for my 38 (almost 39 weeks) week appointment and the doctor did a membrane sweep to get things moving.
I ended up having to grab my hospital bag and quickly make my way to the labor and delivery room – I was leaking amniotic fluid.
With JJ I opted in for an epidural right away despite only being 3 cm dilated, I didn’t have a doctor to tell me that it was much too soon. Nor did they help me prepare to push a baby out.
I ended up pushing for 2.5 hours, almost 3! Needless to say, postpartum recovery was very difficult with him, I could not walk or close my legs.
It was definitely a difficult postpartum.

Jaxson’s pregnancy and birth were very scary, at 20 weeks I had to be followed by a Perinatal Specialist. I was considered high-risk due to baby only having a two-vessel umbilical cord.
His induction was scheduled for 39 weeks due to measuring up to four weeks behind, they felt that he would thrive much better outside. This time I did my homework and wanted to wait as long as I could for my epidural.
But, I ended up waiting much too long! The anesthesiologist administered my epidural TWICE but I still felt EVERYTHING.
Apparently, when he came in to administer my epidural I was already too far gone – 8 centimeters. After four hard pushes, Jaxson came into this world.
How Positive Affirmations Can Help
Positive affirmations can help women through birth because of how powerful words are to the subconscious. When you find yourself thinking negatively, what happens? Negative things will end up happening.
With my first birth, I kept thinking negatively, that I wasn’t strong.
During my second birth experience, I was a warrior. I told myself that I could do it and whatever path my birth took me, I would take on with strength and grace.
That is why it is so imperative for us to think positive thoughts, use positive affirmations.
Self-affirmation may also help to mitigate the effects of stress.Mind Tools
