Christian Science in Childbirth

I wish to give my testimony in regard to what Christian Science did for me recently in a case of confinement with my first child. I was under treatment for about two weeks before the birth took place. About 4.30 P.M. I had a few slight pains. My sister-in-law came in, and she said there was no need of them, that if the healer were here they could be stopped. I sent for the healer and she arrived here about six o'clock. During that time slight pains continued at intervals. About ten minutes after the arrival of the healer, our child was born. I experienced but very little pain, the child weighed nine pounds. The next day I sat up in bed and ate a hearty dinner, and the second day I stood on my feet. I gained right along; but on the fourth day I was taken with chills which came on so severely and with so much fear that I had extra covering put on. Then I went to work, and soon saw that I did not need the extra covering. I threw it off and turned to God. In a few minutes my temperature was normal. I feel very thankful to Mrs. Eddy for the benefits I have received in Christian Science.
