“Supernatural Childbirth” by Jackie Mize

In America, there’s one word that is associated with pregnancy, but especially with birth…..FEAR. Because of the current medical treatment of birthing women, most of the moms we see in the office are really anxious about their births. This is so sad because birth is the most incredible time in a woman’s life. At no other time in her life is a woman so strong as in birth. You can hardly go out in public while you’re pregnant because the questioning and horrible birth stories are almost unbearable.

It’s time to change all that. In this book, Supernatural Childbirth, Jackie Mize takes you to a new place of trust in Jesus for your perfect birth. And doesn’t that make so much more sense, since God created birth and created your body to go through it?? This book is full of prayers for specific times in your pregnancy and birth, verses to claim over yourself and your wife/family, and helpful examples of her own births and births of other women who have changed their minds that birth has to be a painful, awful experience. Instead, Supernatural Childbirth shows you that birth can be a miraculous, spiritual mountain top that God can use to speak to you like never before. One of our midwife friends always says that “God speaks loudest in birth” and after being with my wife at home for the birth of our son, I couldn’t agree more.

This is a great book for anyone who’s thinking of having kids, is pregnant, or knows someone who is pregnant and wants to get them a very useful gift. A very short read, it is jam packed with the Word of God and what he says about you, your birth, your baby, and his love for you. A must for every expectant family.

    Dr. JB,

    I have heard wonderful things about your practice from several friends who are patients.

    I came to your blog to read about raw milk but this post stood out to me as soon as I saw the cover of Supernatural Childbirth. I have read it and have to say that I really struggled with it. I will agree with you that it is chock full of Scripture but I believe that much of it is taken out of context and misused. The Bible says that pain in childbirth is a result of The Fall.

    Mize uses the term “Supernatural” in this way:

    “When I refer to supernatural childbirth, I’m talking strictly about being able to conceive and to have babies with a pregnancy free from nausea, morning sickness, pain, moodiness, depression and without fear of any kind; then going through the entire labor without pain, and through the delivery without stitches and anesthetic. I’m talking about using the Word of God to overcome, change and make things better.”

    Ms. Mize asserts that one can have a pain-free pregnancy and birth and that would be God’s will. But what about pain? What about how God uses pain to drive us to Himself? And what about pain producing fruits of righteousness? Mize also asserts that if you will not experience pain if you are just godly enough or believe hard enough.

    For what it’s worth, I definitely agree that birth can be a miraculous, spiritual experience. I have had three very different births in less than five years and I strongly support natural childbirth. I agree with everything you wrote in the post above, but I do not agree with the premise of Mize’s book. To say that pregnancy and birth can be pain free if you just believe hard enough and will it so is simply not scriptural.

    I think that this is a very well written, fair review of the book: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2N7OCZBJY3RQI/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

    Respectfully,

    I have to say that Supernatural Childbirth was a major factor in my ability to have 4 natural births and I will be using the scriptures that Jackie mentions for my 5th blessed birth this summer. I HIGHLY recommend this book to EVERY pregnant mother! ESPECIALLY first-time moms. They NEED to know that it is possible to have a BLESSED and HAPPY birth. Fear causes tension in the body, which causes pain in birth. The more I am able to relax and focus on the Lord, the less pain I have. I haven’t had the “pain-free” births Jackie mentions in her book, but I believe it is possible. The important thing (and Jackie stresses this in her book) is not whether you are “spiritual enough” or not, but that you are relying on God and not holding onto the fear. Everyone comes to birth from a different place of health and spiritual understanding. Meditating on the scriptures and learning to relax will help ANY mom in ANY birth. My two cents.

      Thank you for your testimony Jennifer! Cindy and I also took the scriptures in Jackie’s book and meditated on them and gave our birth with our daughter to the Lord and we had a truly worshipful, INCREDIBLE experience. I cannot agree more about the message of hope in this book. I also agree with you that she doesn’t say that you are not “spiritual enough” if you have pain during your labor, but focuses on encouraging you to put your trust in the Lord and not to focus on your fears. So glad you’ve had great experiences with the scriptures and I’m praying that God blesses you even more in your 5th!!

    I thank God for the salvation of my soul and your book, the supernatural childbirth. I have been married since 2009 and have not been able to carry my baby. I have had 2 babies and both were stillbirth (the first a baby girl 3.1kg, i had her at 40wks+3dys the other came about 10mths later and a baby boy 3.3kg@ 37wks+4days).

    The truth is i have read your book and have trusted the Lord for the safe delivery of my babies. I and my husband have used the word of God according to his promises and we are tithers. I can not explain what is going on as my Doctor has said nothing is medically wrong with me. Please i need your advice/counsel on this. thank you.
