Bible verses for strength during pregnancy and labor <3


Isaiah 40:11

Help break the fear

During the pregnancy I was scared and nervous about giving birth. I couldn’t get over the surprise factor, the baby could come at any time! Especially not knowing how it would feel! I would wonder, how do the contractions feel? How bad do they hurt? What does it feel like when the water breaks? What about when the baby actually starts coming!?! Will I tear? Will we be ok?

Sooo many questions and there’s no sure answer! It’s different for everyone so you’re still left in the unknown. This fear of the unkown helped me to lean more and more on God’s faithfulness.

Our Father is Faithful! Jasmin was born in one hour!

Of all things that are unsure, God is the one you can be sure. He will always be with us. When we pray, he hears us! The Lord proves His faithfulness over and over. He showed His faithfulness in answering our prayers for Jasmin’s birth without a doubt. I remember this truth over and over recalling Jasmin being born so quickly and safely, what a unique birth! PRAISE OUR HEAVENLY FATHER ! (Jasmin’s Birth Story )

Be constant in prayer, remember His words

During the pregnancy I got the idea to make little posters to hang around the house to remind me during labor. I never got the chance to make the posters but I read the verses often and memorized one in particular while pregnant. I know our Father was with us during the birth and I’m so grateful for His everlasting Word!

A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. (John 16:21 NIV)

John 16:21 is one of my favorites! It is very true! This verse reminded me during labor “this too shall pass, it will all be worth it!” And it was!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ . (Philippians 4:6, 7 NIV)

Along with,

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. (James 1:2-4, 6 NIV)

Love God’s word! There’s always love and hope in His promises. I prayed, and Rudy and I prayed together. I wrote down these verses and meditated on them. But without faith, even just the size of a mustard seed, we will get nowhere, and fast! That’s why I also prayed this prayer-

“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24 NIV)



The following is a list of more verses that I wrote down and helped me overcome my fear!

This is the one I memorized and the most important on our daily walk with Christ!

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1 KJV)

Remember this when you pray:

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. (Matthew 6:33, 34 KJV)


And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. (Romans 5:3-6 KJV)


Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. (James 1:17 KJV)


And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9, 10 KJV)


Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. (1 Peter 5:7 KJV)


Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Ahayah is everlasting strength: (Isaiah 26:3, 4 KJV)


Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord : and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. (Psalms 127:3, 4 KJV)


For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. (Psalms 139:13, 14 KJV)


Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. (Hebrews 10:35, 36 KJV)


I waited patiently for the Lord ; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. (Psalms 40:1, 2 KJV) *read the whole Psalm*


He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. (Isaiah 40:11 KJV)

Praying and meditating during the pregnancy helped me a lot. Meditate on these verses and BELIEVE God is making these promises to you. Pray specifically for what you wish to experience during the pregnancy and KNOW that God is already answering your prayers! Rudy and I also prayed during labor and I kept remembering that it would pass! As soon as Jasmin was born I forgot about the pain and just welcomed her to the world!

May these verses be forever a a blessing in your life! Remember we are fearfully and wonderfully made to be fruitful and multiply!!!
