Many women have been told they can never conceive. Others have suffered the pain of conceiving and miscarrying. Have you had enough of this picture?

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
This book was a blessing to my husband and me. It encouraged me to spend even more time in the Bible renewing my mind with the Word concerning childbirth. The time in the Word coupled with the encouragement in this book, reminded me I have been redeemed from the curse of the law.
My first daughter was

My whole gripe with this book is that the entire premise is nonsensical. Since when does faith abandon reason? Genesis clearly states that one of the punishments for the fall was guaranteed pain in childbirth. In a pre-lapsarian world, childbirth would have been painless. Yes, I know that our faith in the (NT) promises of God give us victory in this life, but I don't believe that victory always comes without pain. Nor do I believe that God intended us to retrofit and isolate verses of personal e ...more

It just weirded me out too much. I had a hard time connecting. While I absolutely believe that God answers our prayers and gives us the desires of our hearts, and that miracles happen and we should always move forward through life in faith and focus that God is in control and means to bless us, I just can't connect beyond to the idea that any pain in childbirth is a result of fear and the devil, and that things like a C-section or asking for pain medication are not moving forward in faith that G ...more

A must read for any woman interested in delivering their baby naturally -- no meds, no pain, no tearing -- i.e., supernaturally. I experienced supernatural childbirth twice. Both times were the most empowering experiences of my life! I cannot say enough good things about this book.

I would also recommend this book to anyone recovering from a miscarriage or struggling with infertility. The many prayers and scriptures compiled here will encourage you to press into the Lord and renew your faith.

I could not have done without this book. It is a true jewel for all pregnant women. It builds your faith to an enormous level, and after reading it and praying about it, I truly had a supernatural childbirth. I pray that every woman that reads this had the same revelations that I had.

I read this book some years ago and it changed my entire way of thinking about having children. It opened the scriptures to me in a new way. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who wants to have children. I lost my first copy but plan to get another copy within the next few days to read again and again.

The whole book was based on a completely unbiblical principle. It twisted Scripture to fit its purposes. The whole thing was incredibly irritating and made me a bit sick at times. :(
I highly suggest not reading this book if you want accurate biblical theology.

Redefined how I thought about conception and childbirth. I wish I had read it before my first child...it will certainly affect how I approach future experiences!

I believe the stories are true in this book, but at the same time I'm skeptical about the claims. I'm afraid this might fall into "name it and claim it" prosperity gospel theology. Still, I found many things I agree with and some basic principles I'll use to get through a natural childbirth.

When I stumbled across this book, I didn't know how much my perspective would change and my faith would grow! I was so excited as I read through it the first time, and before we were even pregnant my husband and I began to pray and declare many of God's promises from the Bible outlined in this book. I was so glad to learn of the testimonies in this book and be reminded that God's way is always better than the world's way. I will gladly recommend this book to pregnant friends and family.

I thought this book was okay. I read it during my first pregnancy and was hoping to have a supernatural birth, but God had other plans. I had a natural birth at home during a span of 29 hours. It was painful, but after it was all said and done. I wouldn't have had my birth any other way. I felt like I grew stronger spiritually through the intense pain and now many of my fears in general are gone. I have nothing against praying for a supernatural birth, but please know that pain should not be fea ...more

I Loved this Book!!

I am so ready and excited for our next birth. We haven't even confirmed a pregnancy test yet but we are planning out our Supernatural Birth ❤ after reading several negative reviews on this book, I must say that this book is definitely Not for everyone. If you don't believe in God or if you don't believe that Jesus took on our sickness, disease and pain (on the cross) so that we don't have to live under that curse .. Then you probably won't be able to tap into the very simple t

This short powerful book has changed my life. Through simple, short, effective, powerful prayers she offers, I have taken authority over all kinds of medical issues. Don't limit yourself to thinking this is just about childbirth. The author's testimony is truly powerful but the prayers and the scriptures behind the prayers extend to all medical problems. I have testimony after testimony of healing in my body because of these short but potent biblical prayers. Edited to add that I have given MANY ...more

I LOVE this book. I highly recommend it to any woman even remotely curious about birthing without epidural, pain meds etc. I had five births with an epidural before reading this book. I believed I was a wimp and could never go without all the drugs. This book have me the confidence to continue with my conviction to go natural for my sixth. As a result I had no pain. I felt intense contractions but really truly experienced a very super natural childbirth with no pain. It was a miracle. Read this ...more

i love that this book is mostly her testimony. they talked about how they found what God's Word said, stood on it and obtain favorable results. it even talks about when their faith started to falter and how they overcame. i loved reading the testimonies in the back as well (though, i think those should have focused more on God and less on the authors pointing them to God). it's about faith and it's not hokey at all. i really enjoyed reading it.

This book is amazing! The only thing I don't agree with is the tither rights. Very uplifting and encouraging going into labor. I didn't have a supernatural birth with my second with it being painless. I still got an epidural and was very upset to have to be induced because I was a week and two days overdue. My daughter wouldn't engage. However, she literally pushed her way out. I didn't push at all. She came out within a minute of the midwife telling me to push.

Wow, I learned a ton from this book. Basically I would just say that if you are a Christian and you are pregnant it is a must read. It really gives a lot of strategy in dealing with fear and anxiety surrounding conception, pregnancy and delivery. I don't think it's the only book you should read to prepare for delivery because there is not very much practical advice given for that phase, aside from not getting into fear. But definitely a lot of insight on God's heart for "child bearing".

This was pretty good. I think, with anything, you take what you like and leave the rest. I loved her verses that affirmed our ability to conceive carry and birth a child without pain according to Gods Word. The concept of truly believing and praying for a pain free birth was a new idea for me. I'm nine months pregnant so I'll let you know how it goes :)

Very spiritually encouraging while trying to conceive

Great Christian book for women trying to conceive, or already pregnant. Good for father's-to-be also. All of the bible verses pertaining to conceiving, child birth, etc are all here. Very easy to read and reread to give yourself peace of mind, and learn to wholly trust in the Lord, and not have fear.

Life Changing Information...

This book is information that every woman should be given as a wedding gift. Nobody ever told me that any of this was possible and even as a believer it's not intuitive. This book has revolutionized my thinking and completely changed my mind. I promise to update this review once I have my first Supernatural Childbirth experience!

I can't say enough about how much this book helped me. First, the prayers to believe for conception and then the scripture references and prayers that helped me believe for a healthy pregnancy. I recommend this book to anyone struggling to concieve and for reference throughout pregnancy.

I LOVED this book! It helped to calm my fears and worries about childbirth. While I didn't deliver naturally it did allow me to get to 7cm dilated without feeling overwhelmed and consumed. It came highly recommended by a close family friend. Our bodies are amazing!

This book was interesting. It had some good points and helped me to be calm through labor, however I don't agree with the overall concept of the book.
