Pregnancy is a time of great change and growth- not just for the baby growing inside you, but also for the mother herself. As you journey through these nine months, it can be helpful to study bible verses about pregnancy.
These scriptures will offer encouragement and inspiration as you face the challenges of this unique time in your life. We hope that you find strength, peace, and joy in these verses as you carry your little one!
My Pregnancy Journey
I know that you may be feeling discouraged right now if you are trying to get pregnant and have not been successful. I want to encourage you with God’s word today.
Just like He guided me through my journey to motherhood, He will guide you as well.
It took us a year and a half of actively trying to get pregnant before we finally were successful. But along the way, I found encouragement through bible studies and scriptures. They gave me hope that God was guiding me on this journey, even when it was difficult.
Then after two miscarriages, we were finally blessed with our first child, then shortly after with our second.
Now as I write this blog post I am currently in my third trimester with our third child. I’m a fertility coach and stay-at-home mom who is pursuing her passion of continuing to inspire women of God on this journey to and through motherhood.
I relied on God throughout the entire process and knew that He was in control.

Bible Verses About Pregnancy
Here are Bible verses about pregnancy to study each month as you carry your baby:
“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.” Psalms 139:13-14
The book of Psalms reminds us to praise God through everything we are going through. He is the one who creates and knows us from conception. We should praise Him for the new journey we are about to embark on.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
This bible verse is a great reminder that God has a plan for our lives, even before we are born. He knows us intimately and knows the role we will play in His kingdom.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
This is my favorite scripture that I hold close to my heart, especially while pregnant. Although we don’t quite understand every symptom or change that is happening with our bodies we know that God is directing every step.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
During this month, you may start to feel anxious about the upcoming trimester. Remember that God has a plan and everything will work out for good in the end.
Study: 2 Corinthians
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
We need to be careful during this time to not let our thoughts run wild with worry. We should instead take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ.
“For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.” Luke 1:44
This bible verse is a great reminder that our baby is listening to us and knows our voice. This is the perfect time to start reading the bible out loud to your little one!
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” Ephesians 3:20
This bible verse is a great reminder that God is able to do more than we could ever ask or imagine. We should trust in Him during this time and know that He has everything under control.
“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:4
As your due date approaches you will need to lean on the guidance of the Holy Spirit more than ever before. If you have not yet, invite the free gift of the Holy Spirit into your life so that the spirit of God can help you in the different trials of motherhood.
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9
You’re almost there mama! You’ve made it to the final stretch and are so close to meeting your little one. This bible verse is a great reminder to not grow weary during this time. You are almost there!
Questions about Bible Verses About Pregnancy
How do you pray for pregnancy?
Pregnancy is a time to grow closer to God and to rely on Him for strength, wisdom, and guidance. Praying for pregnancy is as simple as any other prayer.
You just have to open up your heart to God and speak to him about your requests and concerns.
What does the Bible say about praying for a baby?
There are many bible verses about prayer, but a specific Bible story I always go to is the story of Hannah. In the story, Hannah was unable to have children and was very grieved about it. She went to the temple and prayed for a son. God answered her prayer and she had a baby boy named Samuel.
“And she made a vow, saying, “Lord of hosts, if You will indeed look on the affliction of Your maidservant and remember me, and not forget Your maidservant, but will give Your maidservant a male child, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall come upon his head.”
This story is such an encouragement to me that God hears our prayers and He is faithful to answer them.
What does the Bible say about trying to conceive?
The bible doesn’t specifically say anything about trying to conceive, but it does talk about children being a blessing from the Lord.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is His reward.” Psalms 127:13
This verse is such a reminder that children are a gift from God and not something we can earn or achieve on our own.
