Olivia's birth-continued

My pregnancy was normal,with no complications, just like my other three. I was planing to have a natural, drug free delivery, like I had with Mandi, my third child. I spent the last few weeks of my pregnancy practicing relaxation techniques. One technique was to listen to worship songs. As I sang and memorized the words, I found it easier to relax, because I was focusing on the fact that I could trust God with my life.

As I sang about the "Mountain maker and ocean tamer"

and as I sang to God "You made it all, said 'Let there be' and there was all that we see"

I believed "You do all things well."

If I started to feel any fear or worry, I would remind myself who God was and I would feel peaceful again. How was I to know what God was preparing me for. This was the only labor and delivery that I was so focused on relaxation through worshiping God.

More to come.....

I'm glad you're going to finish the rest of the story later. Like I said, I love birth stories.

There is something about a birth story that helps Moms relate. Thanks for sharing.
