Many couples are very spiritual and religious and turn to Bible verses in pregnancy to help calm their fears and bolster their spirits. These are one type of pregnancy affirmation, but there are also affirmations for getting pregnant, pregnancy and even labor and childbirth. You can use these Bible verses by reading one each night or studying the meaning for your life. You can also have one verse last you for a whole week.

Often women will use them throughout their pregnancy and then bring them with them as a source of comfort at the time of birth. These are not bible quotes about pregnancy, but rather an inspiration for pregnancy. Mentions of pregnancy in the bible are few and far between.
