Christian Science in Childbirth

During the time of pregnancy, I used my understanding of Science and felt perfectly well. When the time for delivery arrived I sent for my teacher, who came at once and found me reading Science and Health. I had no time to send for my nurse, but felt so fearless and painless that I could have attended to the mechanical part myself and did help. Page 459 of Science and Health was very helpful in the demonstration. The birth was comparatively painless. It was all over within an hour, teacher gone and husband back to the office. I was up and around the room next day, Wednesday. The following Sunday I was up and dressed, and Sunday night I got lunch. I did just the same as ever and felt perfectly strong. I have not lain down during the day since I got up, nor have I felt the need of it. I had two children before and I know that it seems necessary to do so in the old thought.

When baby was a week old I went to church. It was a cold, rainy night, and I live about a mile from the church but I have felt no ill effect whatever. All laws made for me being so "inhuman" were destroyed by Science. Baby is now six months old. Christian Science is a boon to mothers, and I wish all would have it. It is helping me so much in raising our little family. We are so thankful to Mrs. Eddy for this blessed Truth.
