This is a post I wrote for my personal blog a couple years ago when I was 38 weeks pregnant with my second baby girl. It is coming from the mind of a normal pregnant mama who was thinking through what was to come.

last night I was sitting and praying... I eventually got to the point where I was asking for covering over the birth coming up and thanking God for creating my body capable of growing a child and bringing it into the world. I was saying "thank you for creating my body to do this and allowing it the ability to know on it's own exactly what to do. That I do not have to fear but that I can trust in the process you have made because I know it is not flawed."

Then it hit me! So many people DO believe this process is flawed... That without intervention our bodies would not be able to birth our babies. It simply is not true! He has created us to be knit together and grow and develop in our mothers womb. He also has created our bodies to open and for that baby to descend and be born in just as simple and natural of a way. 

it's all so purposeful and so not flawed!

don't get me wrong, I do understand that ever so often a complication arrises that does require major medical attention! And I am so very thankful God had created intelligent Dr's and Midwives to facilitate when an issue does arise.

That all said, I pray all my lady friends (especially you who are pregnant and growing a baby right now and will soon face the amazing moment of birthing your child) that you will trust and believe that your body too is far from being flawed! When God created YOU in YOUR mothers womb He designed your reproductive organs and hormones and everything else to endure and even flourish during the pregnancy and birthing process.

fearfully (beautifully) & wonderfully made...
