The power of positive imagery

Last year this time I was giving birth to my son. My experience was more positive than anything; my body did a fantastic job delivering the baby. However the journey wasn’t easy. 
I had a slow progress long labor. In the delivery room there was a big beautiful picture of a mother holds her newborn. That picture became my focal point during delivery.

At the end I was happy actually when I was settled in room 14. On the wall there was a big beautiful picture of a mother holds her newborn, that picture was my focal point during delivery.

It helped me staying positive. I wanted to hold my baby just like the woman in that picture. So I focused on the picture during delivery.
It was as effective as having gas and air (laughing gass), birth partner, excellent midwife.

So I painted the same picture in my own expression
