Harmonious childbirth under difficult conditions

For many years now I have experienced blessings through Christian Science which it is high time that I acknowledged.

Since coming to this country I have had further outstanding proofs of God's power and protection. Before our second child was born, it seemed impossible to make any kind of provision for its arrival. We were in a very remote spot, which during the rains was cut off from the outside world for days together, and I could find no midwife or doctor able to risk being isolated for some weeks. Eventually, however, arrangements were made for me to go to a small hospital a hundred and seventy miles away, but the journey was considered very hazardous, and there was danger of our car being bogged down on the way.

We were guided to choose two days when the fine weather literally followed us overhead, although violent storms took place elsewhere. All this time I had the support and help of a loving and steadfast practitioner; and in spite of the fact that she was about nine thousand miles away and that I had the baby in a very medical atmosphere, the birth was extremely harmonious and easy, the very opposite of a painful and trying experience which I had had some years previously.
