Seeking Healing

I am currently pregnant with my second daughter. The birth of my first daughter went well and was beautiful, but due to some health issues she ended up in the NICU, which was traumatizing for me. I am seeking healing through the Savior so that I can let go of more of that experience before I give birth again (in September!). 

My question to you is, how have you had a spiritual experience with birth? How did you feel the Spirit during the birth or adoption of your children?

In the recent General Women's Meeting, Sister Wixon, spoke on keeping covenants and how this is empowering! In talking to other mothers about birth, many have said that they have found birth to be empowering. I never felt that way, but realized in this conference that having a child is empowering! Because we are keeping a covenant with our Heavenly Father that we may have made in our premortal life!

  1. You may have already had your baby by now... because I see this post is older, but I just wanted to comment. I know that for me my births are spiritual because I pray my heart out during them. It is a time when I know that I can't do it by myself and so I pray for help and I have gotten it.. in the forms of angels, midwives, my husband, the baby, peace, strength, understanding. I also think it helps to be surrounded by people who also feel it is spiritual experience. Because sometimes during the hard times of birth you need to be reminded of it :) Best wishes with everything!
