Relaxation and birth visualization techniques

meet your baby!

Give yourself the right to hold that picture now...to see your baby in your arms now, looking down, down, down looking at those eyes looking up, up, up at you... little feet moving, little arms, moving in the air now. Can feel the baby against your skin. That's where it's headed, right next to your skin now. Can feel it right next to your breast. You can, _______, touch the baby's head with your hand now. Its little forehead relaxes under your fingertips...as you look down at your baby now... And when you're ready...see your baby in another's arms, perhaps your partner, your husband, or your friend or a dear relative holding that baby, holding that baby next to you now... And you can, _______, look at that person's eyes looking down and welcoming this little member of your family...

To personalize: Insert the person's name who will be holding your baby soon after birth, perhaps the father, a relative or close friend. Also include a sibling holding the new sister or brother in his or her lap, with help if necessary. Write your suggestion below.

And now, _______, your family is whole, complete for now. As if you have woven the basket full, and the pear has dropped down to the earth and the flowers have opened with time...all in good time. And as you hold your baby close, or see your husband lovingly greeting your new baby...the wonder of it all can enter your hearts now... And as you feel your heart full and waiting...you can let that scene slowly fade its way into your future, now. Feel the scene fade into the future, the near future where it belongs...surely awaiting you.
