I made a compilation of scripture verses for my upcoming birth. While I respect not everyone will be interested in this post due to the topic of this blog, I felt for those who can benefit, I would share.
Scriptures for Birth
They shall not labor in vain,
Nor bring forth children for trouble;
For they shall be the descendants of the blessed of the Lord,
And their offspring with them." ~ Isaiah 65:23
"Shall I bring to the time of birth, and not cause delivery?” says the Lord.
“Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb?” says your God." ~ Isaiah 66:9
"A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world." ~ John 16:21
"Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control." ~ 1 Timothy 2:15
"Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me." ~ Ps 54:4
"So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power" ~ Eph 6:10
"I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry." ~ Ps 40:1
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." ~ Isaiah 40:30-31
"But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me." ~ 2 Cor 12:9
So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up.

Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him; Psalm 37:7a
