Throughout her pregnancy, Emily shared with the Lord her desires for her birth, followed His leading, and then went into labor trusting in His goodness and with open hands. He met her in such a beautiful way and she experienced a beautiful, presence-filled, pain-free birth! Your heart and faith will be encouraged and inspired by her beautiful story!
You can connect with Emily at Emily.firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook or Instagram as Emily Koopman.
Here are the resources we talked about on the show:
Kingdom Childbirth Class: My online birth class that Emily took to prepare her mind and spirit for a beautiful birth with God!
Supernatural Childbirth Audiobook: An audiobook that Emily listened to as she prepared spiritually for her birth.
Mommy Baby Soaking Album: An album full of life-giving Scriptures to peaceful background music that you can soak to with baby during the postpartum time to stay connected to God's heart and truth!
I pray this episode and these resources encourage your heart and prepare you for your own beautiful birth with God!
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!
Here are the resources I talked about on the show:
Hope and God’s Goodness in the Midst of our Miscarriage
How to Create a Heavenly Atmosphere for your Birth – In this video, I give you a little tour of our bedroom to show you how I decorated the room to invite the presence and peace of God into our homebirth!
Whole Tones – This is the amazing healing instrumental music I used for my labor playlist. I also use their Life, Love, and Lullabies album to help my kids and baby fall asleep at night!
Shadow Step by Hillsong – This was my favorite worship song on my labor playlist!
Mommy Baby Soaking Album – A great album to soak to during the postpartum time to help you stay connected to God’s heart and Word!
Birth of Sloane – A great birth video to watch with your husband to prepare for labor together and give him ideas of how to support you through the labor! My husband and I watched this one a few times leading up to our birth.
To your beautiful birth,
Even though everything didn’t go as planned in this birth, I love how LiAnne and her husband were able to stay in God’s joy and peace through the whole thing and still love their birth experience. Their joy was a testimony to the hospital staff and Jesus was so glorified in this birth!
I pray that her story empowers you to remain in God’s joy and peace throughout your own labor and birth even if certain things don’t go as you planned or prayed for. And that you too will be able to birth your baby in God’s joy and presence no matter what twists and turns come your way!
You can connect with LiAnne at email@example.com or on Facebook and here are the resources she talked about:

Baby Blessings : https://theslg.com/downloads/205-baby-blessings-joy-download.html
To your beautiful birth,
As Tonia prepared for a VBAC, she soaked in God’s word and pressed in to understand His heart and promises for childbirth. His promises proved true for her as she experienced a wonderful, quick, VBAC filled with worship and God’s presence. The baby came so easily and quickly at the end that she didn’t even realize she had birthed him yet! May your heart be so encouraged by her testimony and story!
You can connect with Tonia on Instagram @toniajody or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to email her.
And here are the resources we talked about:
Holy Spirit Labor Relaxation Album – the album that Tonia listened to throughout her pregnancy to get grounded in God’s word for her birth. This album has all the scriptures on it that she mentions on the show that were pivotal for her as she prepared her heart and mind.
Kingdom Childbirth Class – the album Tonia listened to is included in this class, as well as so many other resources and teaching videos to fully prepare you to experience the GIFT that God created childbirth to be!
