Some Spiritual Motivation For Giving Birth
“A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.” John 16:21
Yes, I was in intense pain, but it felt right. I trusted my body and tried my best to follow its lead. About two minutes into the pushing, I announced, “I like pushing!” and they all laughed. It was only when the birth was over that I registered that I was a mother. What a beautiful, incredible, intimate, enlightening moment. —Aimee Wimbush-Borque Montreal, Quebec, Canada
