Getting Ready for Childbirth

I get it. The most overwhelming part about being a first-time mom and getting ready for childbirth is that there is SO much to learn. The most important thing to remember is that it’s okay to not know everything. You will never be FULLY prepared. You don’t have to be, but…your heart can be prepared. In fact, your heart should be prepared, and that is the most important thing to learn regarding childbirth. That might not mean you’re completely at rest, but it does mean that you’re working towards it. When you take the time to settle your heart in truth, get rid of anxiety and face your fears (which are most likely lies, fear is just a lie…), your heart will be prepared for childbirth. Then, your mind and body will follow. When I began the journey of preparing my heart, I had two vitally important resources that I want to share with you: First, Childbirth without Fear written by Grantly Dick Read.

The Birth of Eden

I have so much to say. Birth is such a gift. Like actual childbirth, is a gift. I knew this was true before I ever gave birth, but after Jonah’s birth, I experienced that it was true. I literally felt the presence of Jesus and had a revelation of childbirth as a praise offering to the God of all creation. I’ve experienced the presence of God many times in my life in different ways, but I’ve never felt such an extravagant worship offering as the labor of birth. Your body, your whole being, is creating, forming and birthing life through the power of Life Himself. When you think of it in that respect, no wonder birth gets a bad wrap. No wonder so many women experience trauma, pain, suffering and the curse of childbirth. I’m not going to get too deep in theology here, but I don’t believe that childbirth was ever supposed to be a curse of pain for women. It was intended to be a labor for women, just as men were to labor for food on the ground. Labor is simply work. But even beyond that, Jesus took the curse of it all in his labor of…

The Birth of Jonah

Introduction First, I have to ask myself: why am I sharing my natural birth story? I’m sharing my birth story because after the research I did, the current condition of our culture, and the experience I had, I thought it was necessary. Necessary first, for myself on a personal level. I will always be able to reflect on each detail, and if and when I prepare for birth again, I’ll have encouragement for myself from experience. Also, necessary for others on a personal level. So many women experience childbirth. The question is how? Under what circumstances? Not just emotionally, but also physically. In the past, there was only one way to physically birth a baby. The way women were designed, naturally and vaginally. Today, there are many variations on the how. Medications, inductions, c-sections, etc. Thank heavens for the advancements of science and the time and place to use them. But that’s not what I want to spend my time writing about in my natural birth story. Women need to know that birth is normal. Our bodies were made for this. In fact, it doesn’t have to be painful. Yeah, it can be painful, but it doesn’t have to be….
