Prayer eliminates the need for Caesarean delivery

When I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, I was just starting to study Christian Science. Every month after my checkup at the doctor's office, I would meet with a Christian Science practitioner. She was supporting this pregnancy with prayer, and shared wonderful spiritual concepts with me.

I learned to think of my baby's identity as spiritual. I saw her as a child of God—already perfectly formed. As the Mind of all creation, God knows us each as His fully developed ideas. Understanding this has practical, healing effects on our lives. The pregnancy proceeded smoothly, and I didn't have any unpleasant symptoms.
