Hello beautiful mama, welcome to this 10 minute birth affirmation to help you feel joy! Pregnancy is hard – so hard! It can be so easy to get swept up in the feelings your hormones swings are bringing up, fear that comes with the newness of a baby (whether it’s your first or additional!), and the aches and pains of your body. But what of the joy!? Bring yourself into joy and bliss with this 10 minute meditation! Pregnancy may be challenging, but it is also a beautiful journey of creation! Your body is magical, building an entire body in your womb. Creating a new soul to come to this earth plane – a soul that will laugh and play and dance and sing! Let’s rejoice in the bliss that is childhood. The joyful feelings we have when we think of our baby. The happiness we feel deep within and the love that already exists between us. Listen to this meditation daily to enhance the JOY in your pregnancy!
