I have been sooooooo pumped to post this since I asked two amazing ladies to write me a guest post on childbirth.... seriously... waiting in anticipation!!!!! As many of you know... I am a little obsessive when it comes to the birth of my babies. I ABSOLUTELY ABSOLUTELY LOVED every moment of it!!! I loved the anticipation of it, the excitement of heading to the hospital and the labor and birth of each of the girls!!! Although I have to say they were not all "pain-free." I did have moments where I lost my focus and it was hard but for the majority of the experience the amount of peace, excitement and joy I had throughout the labor was amazing!!! In a previous post I said that even with my last one... Adam and I were still high fiving each other and laughing and joking around right up to the shocking moment of Shaylee being born (5hrs +, less then the previous babies) REALLY!!! I believe with all of my heart that we as women have been created to give birth naturally, and that when we claim the inheritance of our children, WITHOUT FEAR!!!! We are able to bring them into the world, with little to NO complications!!!
Now as a precursor, I do know that not everyone has had a great experience. My prayer is that you hear our hearts and not a judgement for your story. If you have had a previous hard labor and birth, my prayer is that you are encouraged with a renewed sense of strength that you can believe for a new experience, giving Him your fear and claiming an amazing experience for your next baby! I didn't even know that was something that I could believe for until my 5th. And for those who are pregnant for the first time!!! YES MY FRIENDS!!!! I am pointing at you!!! Believe for it girls!!!!
So here it is... aaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! (Don't know if you can tell that this topic hits a passion button in me!!!) Tiffany Baskaran recently finished a life group at our church teaching about supernatural Childbirth with another friend Cecile Turner (Who will be doing a part two of this topic!!!!) And It perked my interest soooo much that I desperately wanted to get them to write me a blog on it!! And they both jumped at the occasion!! Sooo woohooo!!! READ AND BELIEVE!!!!

"Supernatural childbirth" is simply a healthy mommy delivering a healthy baby. Supernatural childbirth also means having a wonderful, enjoyable pregnancy, a pain-free labor and a quick delivery without any complications. Yes, I said pain-free. You can’t simply snap your fingers or follow a three-step program to achieve this. If you could, then every woman would experience this. Rather, supernatural childbirth is a faith principle that’s founded on the Word of God.
I recommend a book by Jackie Mize entitled Supernatural Childbirth. Jackie shares her testimony and provides Bible scriptures and confession examples to help you from conception to delivery. Reading this book helped me to believe that I could have a quick, pain-free labor and delivery. I confessed the Word over my body and baby. I learned what my body was going through and what a contraction was – a tightening of the uterine muscle that helps push the baby out. If your body is tense and you are full of fear, anxiety or worry, then that counteracts with the contraction and causes what’s known as "labor pain". However, if your body is relaxed and you are full of peace, then you can experience the contraction without the pain.
Let me share my experience. The day before my baby was born, my body started having mild contractions. I felt pressure, but no pain. The next morning when I went to the hospital in active labor, my contractions were about 4 to 5 minutes apart. The pressure grew more intense. I couldn’t walk or talk during the contractions, but they weren’t painful. I could feel when a contraction was coming, then I would breathe through it, and then it would subside. It felt like you were lying down and a child sat on your back. It didn’t hurt, but there was a weighty pressure on you. When it was time for delivery, I still didn’t feel anything painful.
God created the female body to carry and deliver babies. When your body functions in the way it’s supposed to, everything comes easily and naturally. I never felt the "ring of fire" or anything. It was pain-free and I was surprised to find out I had two small tears. My baby girl was born March 13, 2010 at 8 pounds and 5 ounces!
