Pregnancy and childbirth

Live audio chat with Sarah Hyatt, C.S.B.

In this chat Sarah begins by quoting the first line of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings.” Sarah points out that the word big is a euphemism for pregnant, so we can expect our days to be pregnant with blessings when we're leaning on God. She goes on to explain how this applies to childbearing and shows the possibilities of being fruitful, fertile, and not limited by material circumstances.

She answers questions such as, How can I think of conception as spiritual, when it seems like such a material process? How does one remove the fears of parenthood, before the child arrives? How can I specifically pray about the pain that comes with contractions? How can I overcome the fear that my child will have deformities? And how do Christian Scientists handle the non-use of medication during childbirth?

We'd love to hear from you!
