16 Positive Affirmations For Mums & Expectant Mums

As mothers, we often find ourselves meeting the needs of everyone around us before ourselves. We’re guilty of not taking the time to think about ourselves, and our mental health & confidence can take a hit because of this. For International Kindness Day, we’re encouraging our community to send our kindness inwards, with a collection of positive affirmations for mums and mums-to-be. 

Positive affirmations help disrupt the negative thinking habits, self-doubt and criticism that comes with motherhood, by building a new route in your brain for positive thoughts. Repeating affirmations in front of a mirror or writing them down can be a great tool in taking back control of your emotions, and going about your day more intentionally.
