When you’re wanting to get pregnant, trying every month and waiting can feel like torture. But the stress of waiting can actually have detrimental effects on our body’s ability to conceive. Use these fertility affirmations to get your mind into the parasympathetic nervous system, which allows your body to thrive and create the perfect conditions for making a baby.
How Fertility Affirmations Work on a Physical Level
Stress affects our hormones and bodies to a greater level that we frequently acknowledge. According to several studies,
women whose saliva had high levels of alpha-amylase, an enzyme that marks stress, took 29% longer to get pregnant compared to those who had less.WebMD
Basically, your body knows that periods of high stress are a bad time to be pregnant and it suppresses the reproductive system.
When you practice things like meditation, affirmations, self-hypnosis, self-care, exercise, or journaling, you’re putting your body into what’s called the parasympathetic nervous system, which is all about rest and digestion.
States of Stress versus States of Rest
In states of stress, your blood is directed toward your muscles instead of your internal organs. (This is also part of the reason we can put on weight easier in times of stress, because our digestion is not working efficiently.)
In states of rest, your blood is directed toward your internal organs, healing, digestion, and reproduction. That means that, as much as it may make you mad, the advice: “Just relax and you’ll get pregnant” isn’t actually wrong.
So whether you’re dealing with miscarriages, difficulty getting pregnant, or you’re just impatient, put yourself into a state of calm and peace and allow yourself to actually feel how amazing it will be to see that second line!
Choose the ones that resonate with you the best and make sure to practice them. Write them down, repeat them in meditation, or tape them to your bathroom mirror. Just make sure you’re releasing the stress regularly!
