I just started my hypnobabies home study, and some of the affirmations are actually bringing up guilt and fear in me. The ones about trusting my body to grow a perfectly healthy baby and trusting myself to eat perfectly healthy for my baby. I'm a stress eater, and I have not had the greatest eating habits at times during this pregnancy. Also, I've had to take my fair share of medicine during this pregnancy due to a car wreck, nausea, pneumonia, etc. I think I have a deep fear that some of my choices could have hurt the baby or made the environment for a healthy baby less than optimal. When these affirmation come up, they make me feel guilty and worried as opposed to relaxed and comfortable. Do you think this will fade over time? Do you think these feelings will cause the program to be less successful or effective for me?
It's fairly easy for me to accept the affirmation about birthing, it's just the others that are brining up guilt and fear.
