Teeming with ideas. How delightful! This concept of pregnant helped me see that instead of being a time-consuming, burdensome biological process, pregnancy expresses joyous spiritual development, demonstrating God as the only creator.
During my first pregnancy, weekly visits with a Christian Science practitioner helped me gain a more spiritual sense of creation and a deeper trust in God. Our state law required that a medical doctor be in attendance at childbirth, and since I couldn't find one who was willing to attend a home confinement, I engaged a doctor for a hospital delivery.
At my second visit, the doctor expressed concern that my blood type might cause a certain complication for the baby once it was born. When I told this to the practitioner, she said she would pray specifically about it. In reality, I knew, both the child and I are sustained by God, not matter, and God's ideas cannot harm one another. The baby never experienced the predicted difficulty, and no medical treatment was required.
