  In today's episode, I share MY first birth story with my husband as a special guest on the show! Even though this birth didn't go as planned and I had to be induced at the hospital, it still ended up being one of the BEST experiences of my life! I pray you are encouraged by the ways we experienced God even in the midst of a birth that didn't go as I had hoped.

15 Alexis             Alexis headed into her pregnancy believing God for a supernatural pain-free birth. She meditated on His promises and made declarations from Scripture daily. And she used those Scriptures and declarations as weapons when attack hit her throughout the pregnancy. And when labor started, she absolutely experienced the fulfillment of all the promises she had been standing on and believing for. She experienced a beautiful, pain-free, supernatural waterbirth filled with worship and God's presence.  And not only that, but the baby surprised them all at the end by coming out breech! Alexis didn't even know until after the birth that she had birthed her breech because the midwives didn't want to alarm her while she was pushing. God's goodness and faithfulness surround this birth story in so many ways! I pray you are blessed by it! You can connect with Alexis at mommylexi@outlook.com Tyson's Missionary Aviation Page And here are  the resources she recommends and that we talked about on the show: Supernatural Childbirth by Jackie Mize Kingdom Childbirth Class (this is my online birth class prepares you for a beautiful birth with God!)

14 Kaylan God met Kaylan in a profound way during her pregnancy and went before her each step of the way. She was living in a foreign country where she didn't speak the language, and while she debated flying home for the birth, she chose to trust God and stay instead of letting fear lead her decisions. He blessed her with a beautiful, heavenly birth, answering all the prayers and desires of her heart! Her birth was a testimony to the birth workers and doctor there. The midwives commented afterwards that they didn't all need to stay in the room during the birth, but no one wanted to leave because they all wanted to watch this heavenly birth. They weren't used to seeing births like this!  They got to witness the goodness of God and what His Kingdom is like through Kaylan's birth.  I pray you're so blessed by her story!  You can connect with Kaylan at kaylan_ssenfuma@hotmail.com  And here is the link to my Online Kingdom Birth Class that she took that helped prepare her for her heavenly birth. I'd love to welcome you to the class too! It's a birth class that partners the natural and supernatural to empower you for a beautiful birth with God! To your beautiful birth, Kierra

"Surrender" was the theme the Lord kept putting on Melissa's heart as she prepared for the birth of her first son. So throughout the pregnancy, she sought to bring to Him and surrender each situation that arose, all her plans, and the desires of her heart. As she leaned into Him and trusted Him each step of the way, He blessed her with a beautiful pain-free birth that exceeded her dreams. It was such a lavish love gift from Him that she says she's still not over it to this day. I pray you are encouraged and blessed by her story, knowing that God has a beautiful love gift to pour out on you as well during your own birth! You can connect with Melissa at melissa.d@me.com and here are the resources she recommended: Kingdom Childbirth Class - My online class that Melissa took that dives into God's heart for birth and how to partner with Him throughout the labor to enjoy the gift that He created birth to be! Redeeming Childbirth - A book filled with wonderful birth testimonies that Melissa gleaned a lot from even before getting pregnant. The Christian Childbirth Handbook - Another book Melissa read that has lots of great nuts and bolts for labor. The Business of Being Born - A great documentary on birth in different settings and the pros and cons of each (hospital, homebirth, birth center). It's a must-watch for all expecting mamas! More on the Business of Being Born - A sequel to the first documentary with even more great birth info! Mama Natural - Another believing mama who has great birth testimonies and whole site dedicated to helping women have a natural, healthy pregnancy and birth. She's awesome!

With her first birth, Becky leaned on more on the doctor's advice than the Holy Spirit. But in her following two births, she learned to rely more and more on Holy Spirit and to birth her children into God's peace and presence. And after her first newborn had a terrible vaccine reaction, Becky shares the beautiful testimony of God’s supernatural healing and faithfulness and the miracle that their little boy’s life is today. God is so mighty, so present with us, such a good Father and so faithful. I know that so many parts of Becky’s story will challenge and inspire your heart and faith. You can connect with Becky at shanebb19@hotmail.com and here are some of the resources we talked about in today’s episode: Supernatural Childbirth: Becky soaked in the Scriptures in this book during her third pregnancy and they made such an impact in her labor and birth! Holy Spirit Labor Relaxation Album: A powerful album to soak to as you prepare for your labor and birth. It’s full of Scriptures to renew your mind, birth affirmations, a Holy Spirit relaxation exercise, labor practice for you as a couple, and a powerful Jesus encounter. (This album is also included when you take my Online Kingdom Childbirth Class). Mommy Baby Soaking Album: And album full of life-giving Scriptures to peaceful background music. Soak to it as you nurse, sleep, and cuddle with your newborn. I know moms who played this album constantly in the room when their baby was sick or had a serious injury and watched their baby be miraculously healed! The Vaccine Friendly Plan: A great book to help you make informed decisions vaccinating your children and other newborn procedures the hospital will push on you. It’s extremely thorough and covers the risks and benefits of each vaccine and procedure and which ones he recommends at what age and which ones to avoid completely.

Alexis made most of the decisions for her first birth out of fear. But for her second birth, she determined to trust God through the whole process and to listen to Him instead of fear. She trained her body to abide in His peace and joy throughout the pregnancy and believed Him for a supernatural, wonderful birth in His presence. Enjoy listening to her share about her beautiful, almost completely pain-free homebirth with Him that changed her and her family’s life forever! He is so good and faithful! You can connect with Alexis on Facebook by looking up Alexis Fedor (she lives in Redding). And here are the resources she recommends: Holy Spirit Labor Relaxation Album – (you get this for free when you take my Kingdom Childbirth Class mentioned below) -  An album full of Scriptures to soak to and relaxation exercises with the Holy Spirit to prepare you for a beautiful birth with God. Use it to prepare during pregnancy, and then listen to it during labor as well! Kingdom Childbirth Class – This is my birth class that Alexis took that set her free from fear and transformed her thinking about birth and how to invite God into the whole process. It’s a birth class that empowers you naturally and spiritually to birth your baby in God’s joy and presence! The Bible – So important to get God’s words and truth for your birth into your mind and heart! The Scripture Alexis was standing on is 1 Timothy 2:15 “But women will be saved through childbearing.” The word “saved” here is “sozo” which means: to be kept safe and sound, rescued from injury, peril, and disease, and restored to health and made whole.” So powerful that this is God’s promise to us through childbearing! And that’s exactly what she experienced! For a whole list of Scriptures like this to stand on for your birth, join the Kingdom Birth Class or get the Holy Spirit Labor Relaxation Album! I pray you're so blessed by this episode! Much Love, Kierra
