11 Positive Affirmations for New Mothers: When Mothering Gets Hard

It’s no secret that being a Momma can be hard AF! It can be especially hard for new mothers who are experiencing motherhood for the first time. New motherhood can come with a flood of emotions; stress, anxiety, and fear just to name a few. Juggling emotions while adapting to such a huge life change has the potential to negatively impact one’s confidence in their self and their ability to parent. A list of positive affirmations for new mothers may be able to help you maintain your confidence and sanity.

Mothering is truly a unique experience, one that is different for each individual. There is no “one size fit all” manual on how to effectively parent. Consequently, there may be moments of self-doubt. There will be times when you feel like everything you are doing is wrong, even when you are doing a superb job at taking care of your little one. Even with an amazing support system, there isn’t always going to be someone around to tell you how great you are doing. That is where you come in.

Incorporating positive affirmations into your motherhood journey:

Upon becoming a Momma, you will quickly learn that you are, and will always be, your biggest cheerleader. Yes, your partner will be on the side lines cheering you on, your family may be there to help when you need it and your little babe will make you feel like the most loved woman in the world. But when you are dealing with difficult feelings such as doubt, disappointment and maybe even depression, external motivation and encouragement may not be enough to get you through. You will have to get into the habit of nurturing yourself and your mental health to protect your experiences through motherhood.

Incorporating positive affirmations into your motherhood journey is an excellent method to boost self-confidence. It can be used as a quick fixed or to make permanent changes for the long run. This self-care method is great for new mommas since self-care is something we rarely get to do.  I put together a list of positive affirmations that can help your journey as new momma be less frightening, and more inspiring!
