Are affirmations really useful in pregnancy?
Affirmations are a powerful way to influence your subconscious and bring about the desired results. The subconscious mind is a powerful tool that can work both ways if not properly trained. Once you decide on a path of action, the subconscious mind will guide you through it to achieve your end goal, manifested by the communication between the conscious and the subconscious mind. The following methods of use are suggested.

Repeating affirmations
This can be done in your mind or spoken aloud, but it is essential to repeat the positive affirmations everyday. This can be done ideally in the morning or right before bedtime, as it allows the subconscious to continue working on it even whilst you are sleeping.
Writing down your affirmations
By writing down your affirmations, it is a reinforcement process that forces your mind to focus on it. By imprinting the importance of these affirmations in your subconscious, you are allowing it to be accepted and acted upon. It is also useful to leave the list in prominent areas such as your work space so that you are constantly reminded of the positive thoughts.
. Listening to a self-recorded tape
Over time, you will find that it is more than sufficient to listen to your voice repeating the affirmations. It will then be less important to consciously think of your positive affirmations.
The following affirmations have been found to be uplifting, relaxing and enhancing well being during pregnancy.  They help you to develop a loving bond and a trusting relationship with your baby even before birth. You may use any of the above methods.
