God created women’s bodies to do amazing things, and I believe that our hormones and other physical changes during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum are a fascinating testimony of God’s intricate design of life! I believe pregnancy and childbirth are natural, healthy processes for most women, but I am grateful for medical interventions for preserving the health of mother and child when necessary.

For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.

My frame was not hidden from you
    when I was made in the secret place,
    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes saw my unformed body;
    all the days ordained for me were written in your book
    before one of them came to be.
