During the time I was taking class instruction in Christian Science, I suspected that I was pregnant with our first child. This instruction helped me to completely revitalize my concept of man's origin, and I am grateful that I was immediately able to put into practice what I had learned.

As a Christian Scientist I felt strongly that God is the only physician, and it seemed unnatural to turn to a medical doctor for prenatal care. Instead, every day I set aside a special time to study and pray specifically concerning the development and birth of the child. I also employed a Christian Science practitioner to help me in this spiritual adventure. Aided by the Concordances to the Bible and the writings of Mrs. Eddy, I studied such terms as: identity, energy, perfection, completeness, wholeness, movement, growth, harmony, heredity, transmission, multiplication, obstetrics, muscles, expansion. At times I felt as if Mrs. Eddy were speaking directly to me through her writings, and this gave me a loving sense of her present-day leadership. Articles published in past Christian Science periodicals also proved helpful.
