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.
