The more you believe you will have a good birth experience, the better chance you have of it coming true, because not only will you then not fear birth, but you will have a positive mindset about it and welcome it. This allows the process to happen more quickly and easily, and the baby is then more likely to be born without any complications.
It is also important to check in with your baby, because, remember, they are part of the birth process too. It might be a good idea, for instance, to "explain" to your baby (I use mental pictures) the best and safest way for him or her to be born, and to tell them that you are there with them and will birth them peacefully. Above all, trust birth, trust your baby, and believe in yourself. One of the most important parts of your prenatal care besides diet will be mentally preparing yourself (and your baby) for labor and birth.
