When Amy prayed about her upcoming birth, she heard the Lord say “It’s going to be a good birth.”
She clung to those words even when things didn’t all go as planned or hoped. And His word proved true! It truly was a really good birth!
I love how her story encourages us that hospital births can be good births! That long births can be good births! And so much more!

I’m so excited to share our recent birth story with you! I had asked God for an easy, daytime, two-hour labor filled with laughter, and He answered every one of my prayers! Truly every part of this birth was such a gift from Him and I was in awe afterward of how He showed up.
I pray that my story encourages your heart to know that birth doesn’t have to be full of toil and labor, but that with God, it truly can be full of ease, joy, and peace. He is a good, good Father who will meet you in your own unique way during your own birth and give you exactly what you need!

His promises proved true for her as she experienced a wonderful, quick, VBAC filled with worship and God’s presence.

Natalie shares the fun details of her birth like picking up flowers and plant for their baby on the way to the hospital, but also the hard moments when the pain got to be more than she could bear. And then the glorious moment when God’s peace and presence filled her car on the way to the hospital and how He gave her a pain-free experience for the rest of the birth! Her story will inspire your heart, encourage your faith, and bring joy and laughter to your day. Be blessed!

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!
