Whether the pregnancy was long-awaited or a complete surprise, there is nothing quite like the anticipation and excitement of preparing to meet a new baby boy or girl! For some, pregnancy is an incredible time where a woman feels like she is blooming and beautiful. There is no right or wrong way to experience a pregnancy!
Whether you love it and feel your very best, or just see it as a race to the finish line, your feelings are completely normal and valid. I was inspired by my own experience to collect the best pregnancy quotes for expecting mothers. Whatever your experience of pregnancy looks like, I hope these beautiful quotes about pregnancy and birth will inspire you on your own journey to motherhood. There is no bigger gift. There is something very beautiful about being pregnant.
I think I enjoy being pregnant more than not being pregnant. I know it could go either way, and the next pregnancy could be the complete opposite. The first pregnancy is the most self-indulgent thing in the world because you get massages and prenatal yoga and hypnotherapy CDs. When I was pregnant, I was so huge and people on the bus would get up for me.
That made me feel so precious and valued and valuable. It means we were actually here, on Earth, for a time—like the Egyptians with their pyramids, only with children. A baby is a wishing well. Everyone puts their hopes, their fears, their pasts, their two cents in. Here it is, folks. Playtime is over. During my first pregnancy, the people I was around told me how great I looked, asked me how I was feeling, saved the comfiest chairs for me, and stocked the office with decaf tea.
Pregnancy can be a time when you take tremendous pleasure in eating, not only because you may enjoy food more but also because you know that it is nourishing both you and your baby. You could just watch your belly grow bigger, and no one would be allowed to ask you about it, and you would have your baby and a year later you would allow visitors to finally come and meet your little miracle. People always say that pregnant women have a glow.
Truthfully, being pregnant is changing me as a person. Each day is part of this amazing journey that has completely shifted the focus of my life and made me reevaluate my personal and professional goals. In pregnancy, there are two bodies, one inside the other. Two people live under one skin. When so much of life is dedicated to maintaining our integrity as distinct beings, this bodily tandem is an uncanny fact. Of course I can do this. Whether your pregnancy was meticulously planned, medically coaxed, or happened by surprise, one thing is certain — your life will never be the same.
To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched — along with body — making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings. Pregnancy and birth are a space between worlds — a liminal space — a place where you are no longer not a parent and not yet one either. This betwixt and between is sacred space within which powerful and profound events occur — often uninvited. You are pregnant and you are powerful. You are bold and you are beautiful. Go forward in your boldness, in your beauty and in your contentedness.
Trust your body to birth and know that the collective power of women worldwide will be with you. Though childbirth can seem scary and unknown, remember that your body was made for this very purpose. Lucky is the woman who knows the pangs of birth for she has held a star. Giving birth is not a matter of pushing, expelling the baby, but of yielding, surrendering to birth energy.
Life is a flame that is always burning itself out, but it catches fire again every time is born. A mother does not become pregnant in order to provide employment to medical people. Giving birth is an ecstatic jubilant adventure not available to males. Childbirth is more admirable than conquest, more amazing than self-defense, and as courageous as either one.
Birth is, without a doubt, one of the greatest self-expressive and creative processes we can embark upon in womanhood. Remember this, for it is as true and true gets: Your body is not a lemon. You are not a machine.
The Creator is not a careless mechanic. Human female bodies have the same potential to give birth well as aardvarks, lions, rhinoceri, elephants, moose, and water buffalo. Even if it has not been your habit throughout your life so far, I recommend that you learn to think positively about your body. Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.
Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers — strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength. The wisdom and compassion a woman can intuitively experience in childbirth can make her a source of healing and understanding for other women. Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom. They make a woman a mother, a man a father, and have a profound impact on the lives of our families and those around us.
These quotes are all about the process of becoming a parent, which begins the day you see that positive test. Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were here an hour old I would die for you. A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years, and in your heart until the day you die.
There are no words that can describe the euphoria you feel when your baby recognizes you for the first time and smiles. Motherhood is the biggest gamble in the world. It is the glorious life force.
A good way to prepare yourself for parenthood is to talk to rocks because they have similar listening habits. Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become.
Loving a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop. The more you give the more you get and the more you get the more you feel like giving. When your first baby drops her pacifier, you sterilize it. The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority.
Making the decision to have — it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.
What good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is usually best after all. Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck. This is the most extraordinary thing about motherhood — finding a piece of yourself separate and apart that all the same you could not live without.

A mother is something absolutely new.
