Inspirational Pregnancy & Newborn Quotes

Feb 10, 2021

I’ve always had a soft spot for good quotes. Growing up I was the girl that wrote cheesy love poems and convinced myself that the lyrics of every Backstreet Boys song were pulled directly from my life.

A good quote can serve as motivation, inspiration or simply remind you that you’re not alone. Think about it… how many times have you been scrolling along on social media and a quote comes up that makes you stop in your (digital) tracks? Maybe it makes you smile, gives you a sense of being “seen,” or just makes you laugh when you need it. And I’m willing to bet you hit the like button or shared it to your own feed.

If you’ve had a chance to explore my website you’ve probably seen quite a few of these types of quotes scattered about. In this post we will focus on quotes that speak to the beginning of new life. Beginnings that happen in oh-so-many different ways, all worthy of being celebrated.

“A grand adventure is about to begin”

– Winnie The Pooh
