Remembering how eagerly at one time I searched our periodicals for testimonies of protection and healing in confinement cases, I am sending an account of my own experience in the hope that it will help some one. During the months previous to the birth of my little girl, I spent nearly every waking hour in the effort to understand and apply to each daily task the rules of Christian Science as set forth in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy. I cannot say, as some people have testified, that the birth was painless, which is probably accounted for by the fact that I unconsciously retained the recollection of two previous experiences under medical treatment; but I can truthfully say that all the so-called laws of mortal mind concerning rest, quiet, and diet thereafter were trampled underfoot, with no ill effects. A short time after the nurse left, the baby manifested some trouble with her eyes, generally supposed to be due to infection. The practitioner gave treatment for this condition, which seemed to be quite serious, and the healing took place about ten days later.

At another time I was instantaneously brought out of a condition which in many cases is fatal under materia medica treatment. I am firmly convinced that for a few moments I was actually passing through the stage of mortal experience called dying; but the practitioner's understanding of Truth cleared away this false sense, and my condition became normal.
