Bible Verses for Labour and Delivery



With my first pregnancy, I made some inspirational cards with bible verses which I felt would be comforting to me while in labour.  I didn't actually end up reading them then, but as I had spent so much time reading, re-reading and meditating on them before I went into labour, the truths they held had sunk in and I do believe were a comfort to me during labour.



I made them using markers and some large index cards, as they were just for myself.  But to share them with you all, I redid them digitally - and you're welcome to print them out and use them as you think they might be a comfort to you - for labour, or just for life! :)  Below are the images of each individual one - and by clicking here you can download the PDF with them all on one page.









Are there any particular bible verses you found helpful to meditate on before or during the time when you gave birth?

    2. Thank you so much! I am due the end of April and have been collecting verses. During my last labor, I found Psalm 20 very comforting.
