Here are 18 beautiful bible verses for a pregnant mommy and her baby. These verses will encourage you to love God and your child and to find strength in the challenging times of pregnancy.
1. Isaiah 41:10
‘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; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.’
This verse reminds you that when you are scared of the unknown, or when you fear the changes that are about to enter your life, you can rely on the support of God to keep you strong.

2. Jeremiah 1:5
‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.’
This verse reminds us that God has been there for us before we even came into the world, and that he is still there for us now. It also serves to show us that God is there for your unborn child, and loves it even before it is born. God will protect us from the start of our lives until the end.
3. Philippians 4:13
‘I can do all this through him who gives me strength.’
God is there for you to draw strength from when you are struggling. Pregnancy can be extremely challenging, and can make you doubt your strength. Just remember, though, that you can do anything with God’s help.
4. Psalm 127:3-4
‘Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.’
Being pregnant is a blessing, but it is not always easy. When you are struggling to find the light during your pregnancy, be reminded that the growing child inside you is a gift given to you by God; a gift for you to enjoy, to love, and to cherish.
5. Psalm 22:9-10
‘Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast on you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God.’
God brought you out of your mother’s womb safely, and he will do the same for your baby when it is born. From birth, God has been your savior and light, and he will be the same to your baby from their birth.
God is with you and your baby at all times; both the beautiful and the challenging ones.
6. Corinthians 12:8-10
‘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. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.’
Pregnancy can be tiring and draining, but this verse serves to remind us that when we feel weak, we are actually strong. You are able to carry and grow a human being inside you. This may make you feel weak, but the fact that you are doing it in the first place is proof that you are strong.
Every hardship you go through during your pregnancy will be met with ten times the amount of happy moments as you share your life with your child.
7. Isaiah 43:25
‘The Lord says, “Who is a God like you, pardoning sin and passing over rebellion for the remnant of his inheritance?” He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in loyal love.’
When you are feeling down or worried about something, think about how much God cares for you. God is loving, kind, and forgiving towards those who repent.
He will give you the strength to deal with whatever comes your way, and he will never leave you alone. God will take care of you and your baby.
8. Jeremiah 29:11
‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’

You have so much to look forward to with God by your side.
9. John 7:37-38
‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.’

10. 1 Peter 5:10
‘God is faithful, and he makes you worthy of the calling you received.’
Faithful means that God will keep his promises to you. When you were created, God gave you an amazing gift called life, and by making you pregnant, he is showing you that you have been chosen to be a mother.
Motherhood is one of your callings, and one which God will support you through.
11. Jeremiah 11:16
‘I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.’

12. Isaiah 40:29
‘He gives power to the faint; and to them who have no might he increases strength.’
Strength is important when you’re carrying a baby. It’s hard work, and sometimes you don’t feel up to it. However, God will share with you his own power, and his own strength, which will be more than enough to help you through your wonderful journey of pregnancy.
13. Psalm 139:13-18
‘For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.’
This verse reminds us that God created you, and created the baby inside you. He is behind the miracle of life and procreation, and all his creations are wonderful.
This means that your baby will be beautiful and precious, and that it has been designed in God’s image. If you follow the light of God, your baby will be blessed with his goodness.
14. Psalm 34:18
‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those crushed in spirit.’
When you’re feeling down or sad, God will comfort you. He will lift you up and make you happy again. He cares about you, and is devoted to supporting you in your hard times.
If you are going through pregnancy alone, or if you feel drained by pregnancy, God will be close to you to save you, and to help you through it. All you need to do is ask for it.
15. Psalm 63:8
‘My soul cleaves to You; your right hand upholds me.’
When you’re feeling weak and tired, God will strengthen you. He will take care of you, and he will not let you go until you have regained your confidence and strength. Your baby is a part of you, so will receive the same support from God.
When you feel alone during your pregnancy, just remember that God is always there, supporting you, even if you do not see Him.

‘A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.”
God loves children, and he will defend their rights. He will provide for them, and will never leave them. No matter how many or how few people your baby has in their life, God will make sure that they are always provided for and loved.
He will love your child as if it were his own, because your child is partly a child of God’s.
17. Psalm 34.1
‘I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.’
God promises to bless you every day. He will give you joy, peace, and happiness. He will also keep you safe and protected. As long as you stay faithful to him, he will continue to bless you.
He will protect you, and he will watch over you and your baby. God will never abandon you or forsake you, no matter what happens.
18. Psalm 34 :6
‘The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.’
God will hear your cries, and deliver you from your problems. He will bring justice to your situation. If you are struggling during your pregnancy, simply ask for the lord and he will help you through your suffering. Brighter days are ahead, and all the hard times will be worth it.
Pregnancy can be a difficult time. It may seem like nothing but pain and discomfort, but it’s really an amazing experience. God created you, and he wants you to enjoy this time. He wants you to be healthy, and he wants you to have a healthy baby.
You and your baby are both children of God, which means that God will always be there to protect you both, whether that is during your pregnancy, or in the life that follows it.
