During the birth...

The affirmations tracks are designed for playing during your baby's birth. Some Mums listen on their MP3 player or phone, others play them out loud in the room (relaxing the whole team!) Whichever you choose, ensure birth partners are fully briefed and know how to play the tracks on repeat.
