Labor is hard work, but it doesn't have to be intolerable. We can shift the framing of our experience so that not only is labor bearable but actually empowering-for both mother and child. As an artist and healer, I want to share this unique combination of tools-affirmation cards and guided meditation.
Each card models the stages of cervical dilation with concentric circles. On one side of the cards, I included artwork and an affirming mantra for inspiration to instill confidence for your birthing experience. On the other side of the cards, you'll find the stages of cervical dilation indicated both visually and numerically (in centimeters). I left this side of the cards blank for you to add your own affirmations or to use as a way to track and recall your birth story. The guided meditation that accompanies these cards provides both relaxation and connection to maternal wisdom.
