In my confession for a supernatural childbirth, I declared no morning sickness, and it went away. In fact, I had to look down every day at my belly and realize I was pregnant. I worked hard and felt great. I also had a sciatic nerve pain, which went away once I had hands laid on me and we told the baby to move away from the nerve.
I declared no swelling in my feet which came to pass. After the birth, any little bit of swelling went away within a day. The doctor said I had a positive test for Group B Strep, which could harm the baby, so Pastor Marie laid hands on me and felt the Holy Spirit move. I also asked God to tell me the sex of the baby in a dream, and He told my mother-in-law in a dream that night, that it was a girl. My husband had a dream that she had blonde hair, she does.
I had a cervical exam in which the doctor said I was only one centimeter dilated and to come back in a week. I went outside and said “Baby, you are coming out today or sooner than a week!” She came that night. For delivery, I declared the labor to be 3 ½ hours long. My water broke at 5:50 p.m. and the baby was born at 9:48 p.m. It was a pain-free, easy, short, and natural delivery. The contractions felt like tightening of the abdomen and the intensity rose as the baby pushed toward the canal. The nurse looked at me often, and said, “I know you are having a contraction right now, but you’re just lying there, smiling.” Once the doctor arrived, he said he would come back in thirty minutes because I was at 8 cm I said no, she’s coming now. He checked, and I was 10 cm.
I pushed and felt no pain. I could feel the baby coming out, just pressure in that area. The baby was posterior, facing up. The doctor said she was looking up at God, she’s a preacher. I had declared one push, which they said it would have been if she wasn’t face up. They told me 80-90% of posterior births require a Caesarean section. But God’s mercy allowed me to push her through pain-free. The only discomfort was the power outage in the hospital causing the air conditioning to turn off. I was so hot. Then when the adrenaline rush came after the delivery, I was very cold and shaky. The nurse said it would last a couple of hours, but I stopped shaking after 30 minutes.
The baby was not given to me to breastfeed immediately, because she swallowed meconium and needed NICU and observation. They said they would keep her in there for 4 hours, but I was able to pick her up after an hour and a half. She was doing great. She is calm and quiet. She smiled on her second day.
