In honor of International Women’s Day, I put together a list of some of my favorite quotes that celebrate and empower women. As someone who supports women as they add to their families, as well as a mother, daughter, and friend, I believe we should celebrate and empower women everyday. I am thankful to know many incredible, strong, brave women who strive everyday to create equality for all. We have accomplished a lot but there is still much to be done.
Birth is a time of intense feelings, both physical and emotional. There are big changes happening in your body as you prepare to welcome your baby into the world. It can feel overwhelming and scary, but having some positive sayings or mantras can help you to feel more prepared and confident. There are so many birth affirmations on Google and Pinterest, and I used Canva to create some of my own. Some women print them to display in the room while in labor, others read them as inspiration and motivation during their pregnancy. Having positive phrases that remind you of your strength and power will definitely help you stay positive!
