12 Calming Mantras For Mommas-to-Be and New Mommas Too

Pregnancy mantras and mantras for moms are relatively self-explanatory: they are mantras specifically for expecting mothers to help calm your pre-baby nerves, as well as mantras for new mommas once you’ve given birth to your baby.

We all have our moments as moms and moms-to-be. As mommas-to-be, at times we love our journey through pregnancy. Other times we feel stressed, anxious, or just plain exhausted.

As mommas, we stare lovingly into our child’s eyes and wonder how we got so lucky. Other times, we look down and realize with annoyance that our clothes have become expensive napkins.

Whether you’re a mom-to-be or a mom who needs a little more peace, we’ve compiled six pregnancy mantras as well as six mantras for new moms to soothe your jumbled mind.

  3. Breathing will soothe me and my baby.
