Bible verses for labor and delivery will bring comfort during the end of pregnancy and throughout the intensity of any type of birth – natural or medicated birth.
If faith and spirituality is part of a woman’s normal life, it would make sense that it would be an important part of birth as well. Pregnancy and labor will bring joy. wonder. fear. anticipation.
Here are some Verses I used through my five deliveries:
