Bringing Forth Life PB God's purposes in preganancy and birth by Jodie McIver
Bringing Forth Life was shortlisted for the 2023 Australian Christian Book Of The Year!!
Pregnancy and birth bring a whirlwind of change to a woman's body, identity, life and relationships. This is a huge transition, filled with excitement, uncertainty and anxiety.
What exactly is going on in our bodies? How do we make decisions about pregnancy care and birth? What will life be like as parents? What if something goes wrong?
But beyond these physical and emotional challenges, there is something even deeper going on.
Bringing Forth Life offers a unique look at pregnancy, birth and life with a newborn, preparing readers physically, emotionally and spiritually for these experiences and the Christlike transformation they promise. Weaving biblical perspectives and real women's experiences together with the down-to-earth insights of a midwife, this book guides women and those supporting them along their childbearing journey. Bringing Forth Life goes beyond standard birth books as it leans on the wisdom of the ultimate life-giver to reveal the wonder and purpose of pregnancy.
