Bible Verses for Preparing and Giving Birth

The hospital bags are packed, the nursery is finished, diapers are stocked up, and we are getting more excited as the due date approaches. I searched on Pinterest for scriptures to read for my labor, but didn't find anything that I connected with. So, I decided to put together my own collection for my husband and I to read at the hospital. I've also attached a link to a printable version for everyone. Feel free to leave a comment with any other verses you think would be a good fit.
