In episode number 9, we’re hearing from Karen Shorter. Karen was one of the oldest of 8 children, so she watched her mom experience pregnancy and birth multiple times. She grew up with an awareness that birth is nothing to be afraid of, and she used that knowledge during each of her three births.
What struck me most about Karen’s testimonies is how grateful she was to get to experience the perfect design of birth. She mentioned several times how her learning about pregnancy and birth spurred gratitude towards God in her. And I love that...birth turning us to worship the Creator. Yes!
I did want to mention that we discuss miscarriage in between births 2 and 3, so you may want to skip ahead or listen to this episode another time, if your heart is feeling tender in that area right now.
If you're a birth worker interested in being featured in a future "Meet the Birth Worker" segment or a mom willing to share your birth story, please reach out to me on Instagram @hopefulbirthpodcast. Thanks for taking the time to listen! I pray that these stories are an encouragement to your heart.
