In preparing for my homebirths, I started designing birth affirmation t-shirts, tank tops, and all sorts of products and apparel in order to give myself positive messages to focus on any moment a felt the weight of anxiety kick in.
I made them for myself, husband, and even my entire birth team to wear if they so desire. I wanted to not only write out birth affirmations and have Bible verses posted in my house, but I wanted positive quotes and an overall encouraging birth environment established and part of doing this was to have at least my husband and myself wear a birth affirmation t-shirt to keep us both focused during labor.
Since my husband was my coach in all 3 of my labors and I look at him the most, it was most important for him to have a shirt for me to meditate and focus on and just help me breathe, focus, and pray through every contraction during birth.
Please remember that if you are the laboring mom and not the birth team to size up one or two sizes in order to accommodate your baby bump belly!
Birth Affirmation T-Shirt Designs
I am always inspired by childbirth. It’s such a powerful, yet delicate moment in life. And these positive childbirth quotes are the perfect way to both prepare for and celebrate a recent birth.
If you know of an inspiring birth affirmation that you would like turned into a shirt, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note, I have designs on multiple platforms including Amazon affiliates, Redbubble, and more. The reason they’re not consolidated into one is because of certain limitations in product offerings and pricing on each, and I want to bring you the best products at the best price.
This shirt is inspired by my 2nd homebirth VBAC and because so many laboring mamas dig into their primal instincts and let out powerful growls and roars while pushing and going through contractions.
Pregnancy shirts on Amazon
I have a variety of pregnancy shirts both that are funny and that are inspiring
Shirts for Doulas and Midwives
On my Spreadshirt store, you can find shirts and tank tops that include titles like “doula”, “midwife”, or “coach”. As requested by my first midwifery team, they are in multiple colors and not just white to accommodate for the reality of a messy birth situation.
Buy one for mom, dad, doula, or anyone that might be in the room to give mom something positive to focus on!
There are several options currently including men’s and women’s tank tops and unisex/men’s and women’s American Apparel t-shirts. They can be purchased in a variety of colors with either black or white text. Some options even include wording on the back such as “coach”, “midwife”, and “doula”.
