Dear little baby inside me, I want you to know:
I am involved in a wonderful experience.
I am having a baby, and you are that wonderful baby.
I welcome this experience with such happiness.
I can feel the changes taking place in my body.
My womb has become a temple of joy because of you.
I can feel you grow within me, and my body swells with pride.
I take pleasure at the thought of your moving inside me.
My life combines with yours in love.
I’m preparing myself for the time you will be born.
I’m carrying you with such loving pride.
I feel the exciting bloom of being pregnant.
I have a beautiful glow about me because you’re in my life now.
I nourish you with love and take care of my body.
I’m learning to relax more everyday.
I look forward to your birth with such joy.
I am confident about your birth.
I’m practicing relaxation so that you can move easily and comfortably into his world.
When you’re born, little baby, I will give you love so that you may grow in love and trust in yourself and others.
I promise to talk to you in such a way that you will listen, and I promise to listen to you in such a way that you will talk.
I will respect your right to be yourself and I’ll try to help you learn to respect the rights of others.
I promise to encourage you to seek answers that will lead you to know and appreciate this wonderful world around you.
I promise to teach you with love and guidance, rather than anger and punishment.
I will teach you, and I will learn from you.
I will provide opportunities for you to help you grow in love and happiness.
I see you, little baby, coming from my womb, and I see you cradled in my arms.
I’m elated at the thought of your coming to me.
Dear little baby, I love you.
