Giving birth is one of the most beautiful, magical, powerful and phenomenal experiences gifted to us women. Having positive birth affirmations for pregnancy, labour and birth is one of the simplest ways to prepare for a wonderful birth experience with your child.
Being a woman is a wonderful gift and I am truly blessed to have this opportunity of being a woman and a mummy to my beautiful children. When pregnant I like to fill my mind with positive affirmations to help with a healthy pregnancy, labour and homebirth.
Positive birth affirmations and bible verses are a great way to fill the mind for a calm pregnancy and natural home birth as it creates a mindset of positive thoughts which is truly one of the key components to creating a simple natural birth.

40 Positive Birth Affirmations & Bible Verses for a Calm Pregnancy and Natural Birth
When it comes to pregnancy and giving birth there is a whirlwind of advice available to us women that can lead to way too many questions on “how to” give birth. However, let me remind you that there is no secret hidden magic formula to giving birth, it’s what God, life, and nature created us to do.
If you’re a woman who is pregnant then you were created for this. It is a beautiful gift that has been intended for you. It is your purpose, your mission, and your calling. Well, one of them anyway, as you may have many callings in your beautiful life.
Being a mum is magnificent and allowing ourselves to step into that role is a wonderful gift to give to ourselves to help the wild journey. So, forget looking for “how to” give birth, and instead let yourself embrace being a woman. You have a female body, a womb, a vagina, and breasts filled with milk to nurture and nourish, there is life inside you bursting to thrive. Let your mind, body and spirit be what it is, a gloriously beautiful woman.
The so-called secret formula to giving birth is through the power of the mind. Let yourself think good thoughts and you will be amazed at what you can create. Positive birth affirmations are a fantastic tool to help in creating a healthy pregnancy, labour and birth. In fact, you might find that affirmations help you in all areas of your life.
Why are positive birth affirmations important?
Creating a positive birth experience is a wonderful gift to give to yourself and your baby. When you create a positive mindset it opens you up to a powerful energy that works wonders for labour and birth.
We always have a choice in how we think. We get to choose whether we think negative thoughts (fear, anger, rage, frustration etc) or positive thoughts (love, joy, excitement, hope etc). If our mind is filled with fear and frustration then our bodies will respond to that, if our minds are filled with hope and joy then our bodies will respond to that.
When it comes to giving birth we want our mind and body to work with positive thoughts so that our body and baby can work together in an environment of love, peace and joy.
When I was pregnant with my second child I loved listening to these positive affirmations for a calm pregnancy. I listened to them every week and they brought a great sense of peace, love, joy, courage, confidence, strength, trust and faith.
Here is the list of 40 positive birth affirmations and bible verses for a calm pregnancy and natural birth.
