As I approach the delivery of our fourth child, I would like to tell you that it gets easier. But honestly, I still deal with anxiety as I think about the impending unknown. Birth is amazing and incredible (here and here are my POSITIVE natural birth stories). I am excited beyond all measure to meet this fourth life God has been so gracious to bless us with. But I know that to get to that moment, there is pain that precedes it. That is why I created this FREE PRINTABLE of scripture verses for labor and delivery.
I think it is important to remember that the pain that surrounds birth and delivery is good pain. Contractions mean a baby is coming into the world. It means your body is working the way God created it to work. It is working for you and not against you. (For some great resources on having an unmedicated birth if that’s your jam–check this out!) As we focus on our body doing what God created it to do, here are scriptures that can remind us of God’s truths.
