Using affirmations can be a powerful way of inviting a baby into your life. I believe that the more specific the affirmation is, the more helpful it is. One of the many things I did to help myself overcome infertility and get pregnancy successfully twice was to use affirmations.
There are many ways to use affirmations. You can:
- Write one and put it up on your mirror so you see it every day.
- Pick one and say it out loud over and over for five minutes each day.
- Read through all of them out loud each day.
- Pick one to be your mantra during a yoga or meditation practice.
- Write them in your journal when you wake up and before you go to sleep.
- Record your voice saying them over and over and listen to them. (I bought this one on Amazon since I haven’t recorded mine yet!)
This post includes 85 fertility affirmations that I have written to help myself on my journey- and I hope they help you! The first group are affirmations for general health, happiness, and fertility. These can be used anytime for anyone, no matter what path towards conception you are taking.
The next sections are affirmations grouped by cycle phase. There are affirmations for Menstruation, the Follicular Phase, Ovulation, and the Luteal Phase. All of these are appropriate for natural conception (i.e., plain old baby dancing/having sex!), and many of them are appropriate for different stages of an IUI or IVF cycle as well.
One day I hope to turn all of these into printables that you could either buy as a card deck or download and print in a card size. I also have big plans to record these so you can listen to them! But for now, I wanted to go ahead and share the list with you so you can use them as you see fit.
A word of warning: positive affirmations do not work for everyone. AND, if you are struggling with infertility and accompanying anxiety or depression, please do not use these affirmations without an associated self-care fertility mind-body practice. Don’t just say an affirmation in the morning, feel miserable all night, and say an affirmation in the evening and think you are changing things!
You might be familiar with the bible phrase, “Faith Without Works is Dead” (summarized from James 2:14-26). This is the same with affirmations.
You can’t just say “My ovaries are energized and fully nourished,” unless you are actually eating a robust fertility diet that nourishes your ovaries!
Similarly, if you say, “Oxygen, energy, and blood easily circulate through my body and nourish my ovaries, follicles, and my womb,” you’ll know its true if you are doing things like acupuncture, fertility yoga (this is the DVD I use), and Mayan Abdominal Massage, that actually do circulate oxygen, energy, and blood to your reproductive organs.
Not sure where to start? Check out my guide on how I overcame infertility or download my list of 79 Things I did to get Happy, Healthy, and Pregnant. It’s a three prong approach for me- reducing exposure to toxic chemicals; nourishing my body with an organic, whole-foods fertility diet; and practicing a daily mind body routine.
