Found a Midwife

I met a midwife today that is willing to deliver my baby. She is not afraid of the government or politics. Finally! Mark really likes her as well. She hasn’t been practicing for as long as I am comfortable with, but considering Mark was going to deliver the baby with internet how-to, I can’t complain. So basically if anything happens to where I have to go to the hospital, she will drop off the scene. Too bad it has come to this. Reminds me of the Biblical midwife story.

Exodus 1:15-21 Then the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other was named Puah; and he said, “When you are helping the Hebrew women to give birth and see {them} upon the birthstool, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.” But the midwives feared God, and did not do as the king of Egypt had commanded them, but let the boys live. So the king of Egypt called for the midwives and said to them, “Why have you done this thing, and let the boys live?” The midwives said to Pharaoh, “Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are vigorous and give birth before the midwife can get to them.” So God was good to the midwives, and the people multiplied, and became very mighty. Because the midwives feared God, He established households for them.

We have to lie these days to have a natural birth; to give birth the way God intended. But they make it so easy for us to kill our babies. Teenagers don’t even have to have parental consent to do so. It really is no better these days, then in the days of the Exodus.

Well I pray that God gives me vigor to deliver a healthy baby. As he multiplied the Jews then, because of His promise, may he multiply my family because we believe in His Son. And may he bless my midwife, because she fears the Him, not the government.
