Childbirth Poetry

Nothing brings more joy to a family than the birth of a child. The new parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are all filled with joy and excitement at the thought of welcoming the newest member of their family to the world. The first little smile, the first tears shed, and the first baby laugh will surely capture the hearts of each family member and create the most beautiful and unforgettable memories for the baby's parents. Childbirth is not without its challenges, but it is surely one of life's most rewarding events.

9 Baby Boy Poems and Baby Girl Poems

  1. 1. Can't Wait To Be Your Mommy!

    • By Cindy Hawkins
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2009

    I was sitting in my room on a rainy night, September 6, 2008 to be exact, 3 days away from my due date to have my little girl. As the time got closer I got a little more nervous but also a little more excited every time I thought of the moment I got to meet my baby. I started writing these words down and came up with this beautiful poem, and it is now a part of her baby book. She was born right on her due date, 3 days later, and she is my whole world. The anticipation in waiting to be her mommy was worth the wait!!

    So I am sitting here thinking of the perfect words to say,
    to tell you how I feel about the arrival of your birthday.

    I am feeling a little nervous, with hopes I do everything right,
    but I can't wait to be your mommy, every waking day and every sleepy night.

    I have so many plans and things for us to do,
    So I sit here in anticipation just waiting to meet you.

    You already mean the world to me and so, so much more.
    I can't wait to be your mommy, that's all I'm waiting for.

    Mine and your bags are packed and waiting in the car,
    because the day that you will be here isn't very far.

    So here I sit thinking of the perfect words to say,
    But all that comes to mind is I can't wait to be your mommy every single day!!!!

  3. 2. My Perfect Gift

    My child is more precious than anything else on this earth. A new life, a true gift. The moment we met, a bond we will always have, a date we will always know, a time we will always share, a celebration...your birthday!

    The Gift Of Life

    To celebrate is to embrace an act of wonder and joy,
    To show the whole world you have a girl or a boy.

    A date that will be written forever in time,
    A life, a love, a child of mine.

    Tiny fingers and perfect toes,
    Rosy pink cheeks and a little button nose.

    A true miracle, you are born tonight.
    In my arms, I cannot stop staring as I hold you tight.

    Held close beside my heart, I gently sway.
    You're exactly 20 minutes old; you're here to stay.

    My precious gift, my child, my light,
    You are everything that's perfect; you are just right.

    So hello, my angel; I'd just like to say,
    Welcome my darling, and happy birthday!

  5. 3. An Angel From Heaven

    I wrote this poem for my daughter when she was about to deliver her first child.

    An angel from Heaven
    who'd been waiting for birth,
    is excited to be joining
    your family on Earth.

    An angel far envied
    up there in the blue,
    when learned its parents
    down here would be you.

    Baby angels need care
    leaving Father above.
    They hope for a family
    where there's lots of love.

    Where God's light shines brightly
    within welcome doors.
    A home filled with happiness.
    A home just like yours!

  6. 4. My Angel

    I wrote this poem when my daughter was 2 months old. She is now 22 and has a beautiful 4 month old daughter of her own. This poem is dedicated to my angel, Shayna Renae (LaCourse) Rockhold, born on September 7th, 1994.

    The Day My Daughter Entered This World

    In the wee hours of morn,
    A miracle took place when my daughter was born

    With coal black hair and rosy cheeks and eyes that sparkled blue.
    Washed away was all the pain that I had just been through.

    As you were placed into my arms, I looked down at your beautiful face.
    I drew you closer to my heart where forever you have a place.

    It's amazing how in an instant my life took on a new meaning.
    So overwhelming were my emotions. I felt as if I was dreaming.

    As I looked at my tiny angel that was sent to me from above,
    I closed my eyes and thanked the Lord for this baby girl to love!

  7. 5. Happy Birthday

    • By Lamanda K. Strong
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A mother writes a poem in honor of the birth of her son. She welcomes him to the world and thanks God for this "precious gift."

    Precious Gift Of Baby

    Did I ever tell you about the day you were born?
    When laid in my arms was such an angelic form
    With soft black hair, little fingers and toes
    The cutest of ears and a kiss on your nose
    A heart beating fast and deep, blue eyes
    Taking my breath with your very first cries
    You look up at me and the world melts away
    I never knew love until this day
    I've waited so long to see your face
    Welcome, my son, to this place
    Though it may come with pain and strife
    Here you earn your eternal life
    But don't worry, my baby, you are not alone
    He has chosen me to give you a home
    I did nothing to deserve such a blessing as this
    But I'll forever cherish this precious gift
    Wherever in this life you choose to go
    This one thing I want you to know
    Here in my heart my baby you'll be
    Because I love you and you matter to me

  8. 6. Baby Girl - A Father's Perspective

    • By Jim Mullen
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A father feels as if he is alive for the first time as he holds his newborn daughter in his arms.

    Poem About A Newborn

    Who would have thought,
    to my surprise,
    The day I looked in my daughter's eyes,
    That I would find my sunshine,
    my star,
    my pearl,
    All the thoughts in my head,
    of this little girl.
    You came to me late on the twentieth of November,
    That day in my life,
    I will always remember.
    I did not know who I was as a man,
    'till the moment you were placed inside my hands.
    And it was at that split moment,
    when you opened your eyes,
    your true identity was no longer disguised.
    As the lights glistened,
    in your beautiful eyes,
    Inside I slowly started to cry.
    I was given an angel, from heavens above,
    The final test as a man,
    A little girl to love.
    I believe by God,
    I must have been touched.
    I love you, Julianna,
    I love you so much.

    Your face lights up,
    whenever you smile,
    A glow that can last an endless mile.
    Your brothers,
    they love you,
    your mom and I the same,
    You are the completion to our circle,
    the caboose on our train.

  9. 7. Everything And Nothing

    • By Toni
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2009

    I'm 28 weeks pregnant, a first time mother, and scared to death... This poem goes through the various feelings rushing through me every day. From wonder and amazement, to excitement and terror... It expresses everything I would tell my unborn son if I could...

    Poem To Unborn Child

    There you are inside me, you're on your way,
    I'm more and more excited and scared every day.
    Everything is so different and changed,
    Life as I've known it - all rearranged.

    You stretch and wiggle and move as you grow,
    My belly gets bigger, my face stays aglow.
    You're a strong little guy - your big muscles show,
    You cracked mommy's rib just a few days ago!

    Daddy's changing too - he's as proud as can be,
    He's so attentive to mommy's every want and need.
    Rubbing my belly, he talks to you every night,
    He comes to every appointment to make sure you're alright,

    The doc said, "It's a girl" but didn't write it in ink,
    We assumed he was right and got lots and lots of pink.
    We went in for a 3-D, found a penis, "It's a boy!"
    Our faces in shock, but our hearts... full of joy.

    I've fallen in love with your handsome little face -
    I show off your pictures all over the place!
    On stamps, on invitations, to everyone I meet,
    You look just like your daddy with your chubby little cheeks!

    There's so much inside me and everything's new...
    New thoughts, new fears, new emotions, and you!
    I already love you like I've never felt before,
    I wonder how there could possibly be room for more.

    Can I teach you respect, show you love, make you strong?
    Will you know in an instant that this is where you belong?
    You'll teach me patience, show me strength, make me grow -
    I'll learn from you every day - you lead and I'll follow.

    I have so many worries as we prepare,
    Our pockets are empty but we'll make it - I swear.
    Can I be a good mother? Will you be okay?
    I promise you everything...
    ...and NOTHING will stand in my way.

  10. 8. An Ode To Ethan

    • By Joyce Baron Kerr
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    My name is Greg Kerr and my son has just been born. I have never written a poem before my boy was born. I live in Perth, Australia, and this poem is full of the emotion that I am experiencing since. More especially, as my wife and I are so far away from our families, this also is highlighted in the emotion. I never thought that my heart could feel this full; it's wonderful and sad that we can only share Ethan through photographs and videos with our loved ones.

    Poem From A Father On The Birth Of His Son

    Today it happened,
    it's finally done,
    the birth of my boy,
    the little man, my son.

    After a long, tiring wait,
    a sweet sound came,
    the point when our lives
    would never be the same.

    It was the sound of the cries,
    signaling the start of new life.
    I can't describe how proud I am,
    of my brave and beautiful wife.

    I'll admit that I, too,
    cried tears of joy.
    When for the very first time,
    I at last saw my boy.

    As I stood there in awe,
    and gazed down at his face,
    in an instant the world
    became a much better place.

    My heart was bursting
    with an intense sense of pride,
    as I pictured my life
    with my son at my side.

    I know it's early days,
    and we've only just met,
    but I promise I'll be
    the best father a boy can get.

    I'll love you forever,
    my son and my wife,
    keep you safe and protect you
    for all of my life.

  11. 9. The Beginning

    • By Kent L. Bijou
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    We each must make the journey into this world. It is a rite of passage.

    She looks at me with half closed eyes,
    As if to pierce my soul.
    The sounds she makes are strong and firm
    For one just moments old
    With skin still soft from life's ordeal
    She muscles up a whine
    Small fingers reach, yet never touch
    But sure they will in time
    For life's begun, and all is new
    So many things to learn
    She's not the first one nor the last
    We've each once had our turn.
