Before I was blogging weekly I was a doula, I still am. I love being a doula very much. I love supporting women and their families and helping them achieve their goals and filling their lives with the support they want or need. I love my work so much. When I was thinking about an upcoming meeting I have it occurred to me that I have never taken the time to go through my Bible and write the verses that would have gotten me through the births of all my children (which I wrote about for Heavenly Treasures). So I hope you enjoy my top ten 10 bible birth affirmations and they help you achieve what you want to achieve. I have made a printable PDF version also.

I hope you seeing these during your labor and hearing these wonderful scriptures before, during, and after your birth help you along the way to achieve something so unbelievably wonderful. I pray for all you mothers, soon to be, expecting, and just trying to get through the day. Being a mother is absolutely wonderful. Hard, stressful, and can fill you with unneeded doubt but it really is one of the most rewarding roles.
