I can testify that childbirth is an inherently harmonious action, a fact that is often inaccurately portrayed by the media.
When I was still a teenager and my husband and I were expecting our first child, I went to speak to Christian Science practitioner about the expected birth. Since I'd been a Christian Scientist all my life, it was a normal thing for me to talk with a practitioner and to make arrangements to employ her prayerful support during the pregnancy. She told me I need not be fearful, and that giving birth is a natural process. She helped me to better understand God's fatherhood and motherhood, His love for all His creation. She also mentioned that Christian Science takes a different approach to childbirth than does "natural childbirth"; the latter relies on breathing exercises and other physical techniques, whereas Christian Science relies on the power and practicality of prayer to God to bring about a natural birth.
