Giving birth can be one of the most beautiful and holy moments that a mother goes through. When she is focused on trusting God throughout her labor, it can help her to relax and enjoy the process. As a believer, you can invite God into your birth with Biblical Birth Affirmations and Bible Verses.
With my first pregnancy, I read through some generic birthing affirmations and didn’t really get around to using them during labor. But with my second, I had my husband read them to me and post them around the birthing room.
I can’t tell you what a difference these biblical birth affirmations made! They helped to remind me that God created me to birth and to trust His plans.
